“Qualifying to the next stage is really important. We didn't play well but you have to suffer from time to time and hopefully we will grow stronger from this. It can't be up to one player to turn things around, we need to play like a team. When we do that and fight for each other we are an extremely good team and are very dangerous”.
“Hopefully we will get back to playing the way we were at the start of the season. We have the quality and the same players. I believe we are going to see the best version of Real Madrid once again in the upcoming matches”.
