“We have improved because we are calmer", said Marcelo.
Sergio Ramos returned against Levante and spoke to the press following the game: "We can use this game to build confidence and calm people down. We must be more united than ever. It was a difficult game following the run of form that we have had and the level of pressure that is placed on Real Madrid, which is more than at any other team".

"We have to accept that, but I don't think that this is a troubling period. There are two months of top level competition left, we have one point less than the leaders and are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, which is a tournament that is exciting us again".

Cristiano Ronaldo
“It is difficult to be Cristiano and he has been performing at a very high level for a number of years. He knows himself better than anyone, he has a very competitive character and we are not worried if he didn't score if Bale subsequently did. We have to appreciate what he brings to the team".

“He is doing well. He has gone through a difficult situation but if anyone deserves respect, it is Ancelotti, especially after last season".

Keylor Navas: “This team can do great things because we have already shown that before".

“I am happy to be back in the team following a month out injured. I was really keen to get back playing and perform at my top level, and the best way to do that is with a win".

Marcelo: “We play to make the fans happy"
“Teams that come to the Bernabéu do everything possible to win. We aren't playing at our finest, but we have improved because we are calmer and have more confidence. Now we have a long week ahead to prepare for a key game".

Players returning
“Ramos is a very strong player within the squad but Varane, Pepe and Nacho are also doing well. We have a very big squad and we know that when we go out to play we have to give everything. Modric is a superb player".

The fans
“The fans are always right. We try to play to make the fans happy. When spectators don't see what they want, they whistle, but we do everything possible to make them happy".

“Real Madrid give all they can whenever they play. There will be games left after El Clásico. If we win and lose the other games then it will be worthless. We will do everything we can to get a win at the Camp Nou”.

Navas: “The win leaves us feeling good”
“The team played well, we won and that is important. It leaves us feeling good as we face the future and we are happy with the three points. I have to be concentrated for whenever the team needs me. The team was really good in defence and that helped me".

“We are very calm and confident in order to do well out of El Clásico. This team can do great things because we have already shown that before".
