"For me, Cristiano is the best player in the world", said Casemiro.
Álvaro Arbeloa reflected on Real Madrid's victory over Malmö on Wednesday night: "We knew that on their home ground they were a dangerous oufit who are physically strong and play with a lot of intensity. We worked hard and put in a focused display, and we're really happy with the three points. They defended well and looked to make the most of their counter-attacks. In the first half we were really in control, we got the goal and after that the second half was more open".

"We're really happy about Cristiano's achievement. It's incredible. I think that no-one could have thought that he or any other player could achieve such figures; he's become a Real Madrid legend. You feel like the sky's the limit for him. I hope he carries on like this, we owe him a lot. We have to do everything we can to make sure he feels comfortable, and get the most out of him with our style of play".

Playing position
"We're here to help the team. I'm happy playing wherever because it had been a little while that I hadn't, and in that respect I'm pleased".

Keylor Navas: "The team are working really well"
"The team are working really well, we're managing to keep clean sheets and that's one of our targets when we take to the pitch. We're happy with the job we're doing and we hope to carry on in this vein. Malmö are good at home, they're a really good side and their fans get behind them throughout. It was a match where we couldn't afford any carelessness or over-confidence, because they could take advantage of that".

Keylor: "For us it's a privilege to be alongside Cristiano every day".

"We all congratulate Cristiano, because what he manages to do isn't easy. On top of his talent, he puts in hard work day in, day out to try to beat records. For us it's a privilege to be alongside him every day, and you can only learn from him".

Casemiro: "Cristiano is the best in the world"
"We know that every game is tough in the Champions League and the team deserves credit for the win. We put in a really good performance, we were solid at the back and kept another clean sheet, which is always really important. For me, Cristiano is the best player in the world; he's always out for records, he's always out to score goals and he's always out to help the team".

Lucas Vázquez: "You can't praise Cristiano highly enough"
"I'm happy to have got some minutes in this game and to have helped the team. I think that the referee was right on the sending-off. I'm going to carry on working hard and making the most of my opportunities. I feel lucky to be working alongside guys as good as Cristiano, who is the best player in the world. You can't praise him highly enough".
