"We're coming on a lot and picking up important points", declared Keylor Navas.
Gareth Bale knocked in the third against Getafe and spoke about the squad's current impressive form: “Winning is the most important thing. The first half was incredible, we were all working for each other and we showcased our good form. What matters most is that the team are united, that we win games and try to get better every day”. 

“Personally speaking, I feel comfortable with where I'm being played on the pitch and I always do the best I can. It's nice to score but the most important thing is the team. I have a good relationship with Rafa Benítez. The fans were great and they always want us to win”.

Nacho: “It was a difficult day out and we were very focused from the start”
“We played at a very high level, we were extremely focused from the start of the game, we knew it was going to be difficult day out and I think the team gave a good account of themselves. We wanted the second-half performance to mirror the first but we already had a very commanding lead by then, and all things considered we played well and kept things quite tight. Obviously it wasn't like the first half but we can leave here satisfied”.

Nacho: “The team gave a great account of themselves".

“We're out of the Copa del Rey for the moment, but the club is going to appeal the decision and we are very hopeful. We want to keep playing the Copa del Rey, we'll wait to see what decision is made. The last thing we at Real Madrid want is to be out of the competition, especially all the players, because it's a competition we all really enjoy playing. Hopefully there'll be a favourable outcome”.

Keylor Navas: “We deserved the three points”
“Real Madrid gave a well-rounded performance. The team are aware that there are still a few things to work on, but we deserved the three points. We're coming on a lot and putting important points on the board. Touch wood we can continue like this and march onwards. We have to push ourselves to the limit”.

Danilo: “Our goal is always to win”
“We're happy with the performance. The fans were behind us throughout the match. We're a great side full of great players and we have to continue working. Our goal is always to win. By taking it one step at a time we're coming away with three points. I feel comfortable out on the left, it's not my strongest side but I'm here to help the team”.

Benzema and the Copa
“Benzema is hugely important for us, just like all the players are. We're happy for him and he has the backing of the whole squad. As for the Copa del Rey, the president has already spoken about the matter. We have to wait now and do our best out on the pitch”.
