"We suffered at the end because we needed to have scored the third goal earlier on", stated the manager of the Whites.
The Real Madrid manager, Rafa Benítez, spoke in the press room at Balaídos following the Whites' win against Celta: “We won at a difficult ground and we have to be satisfied with that. We had a great game against PSG and today we had lots of chances to decide the game sooner. In the end we struggled a bit because we needed to score the third goal earlier".

"The result is what I am most pleased about. What I am least pleased about is the fact that we had to work hard to get the three points following the game on Wednesday, with little time between matches and at a difficult ground. Kovacic did not play because other players did".

Similar scenario to that of Paris
“These games, with the injuries we have, have allowed us to really value the squad we have. We have continued to win using other players and that is really positive. We have strengthened a group that knows that games are won by keeping up the fight, working, creating chances and defending well".

The group knows that games are won by keeping up the fight, working, creating chances and defending.

“The best aspect was the team. They scored three goals, created a lot of chances and, following the game on Wednesday, we had great match at a ground where big sides have lost and we were able to keep fighting. You have to take away the positive aspects and analyse what did not go well in order to then correct it”.

“This was an attractive game of football due to the high number of chances. Celta are a side with a lot of conviction, the ability to unbalance teams, and quality. They are a side that look destined to be near the top of the table for many matchdays to come".

“We played two and a half days after the last game. It was a surprise to have to play on Saturday following the game on Wednesday. I am convinced that other weeks, other sides will be given this same small amount of recovery time. We showed quality, character and I am satisfied".
