“We didn't let up in any moment”, explained Marcelo.
Karim Benzema scored a brace against Granada and summed up the game against the Andalusians as follows: “It was a great match in our ground. We scored a lot of goals and that is good for everyone. We attacked and defended well and everyone played well. We were in full flow for the fans”.

“We scored a lot of goals and created a hat full of chances once we broke the deadlock. For me the most important thing is winning, getting the three points. After that we can look at our nine goals, which is something that doesn't happen very often. We are going to try and win all of the remaining games from now until the end of the season”.

Cristiano Ronaldo and the BBC
“Cristiano is a phenomon, he is always on the lookout for goals and ways of helping the team. He deserves everything he has achieved. Himself, Bale and I are in good form, as is always the case. We are helping the team, sometimes we score and sometimes we don't, but we are in good shape to continue like this until the end of the season”.

Marcelo: “Winning ten games is not beyond realms of possibility”
“We got off to a good start in the match, our attitude was spectacular and we didn't let up in any moment. We respected Granada right until the final whistle, that is why we scored so many goals”.

“We can't expect to win all our games like this and no team are capable of winning all their games, but we are going to try and stay on this track. You could notice on the pitch that our attitude was good and that we carried out the boss's instructions".

Always on top
“The result only gives you a glimmer of our performance. We ran a lot and fought extremely hard. We have to play that way to get over our problems and we are trying to change the image of Real Madrid. We always need to be on top. Winning ten games is not beyond the realms of possibility and hopefully Barcelona will slip up”.
