“In the quarter-final there are no easy opponents, they are all strong”, said Keylor Navas.
Lucas Vázquez was the stand out player against Roma, setting up Cristiano Ronaldo for the first goal. The academy graduate couldn’t hide his happiness for making it in to the quarter-finals of the Champions League: “It was a difficult game. In the Champions League the matches are always difficult. The team played well for 90 minutes and the victory was a fair result".

“We want to win the Champions League and we have to go round by round. We'll see who we're drawn against but in this competition there are no easy matches. It's the best competition, for us, winning it is a dream and we're going to give everything for it". 

Ovation from the fans
“It makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck and I was very grateful. I always try to help the side as much as I can. Today everything went well, I'm trying to make the most of the chances that the coach is giving me. We all look out for each other, we're a strong group and you can see that out on the field".

Keylor Navas: “We're working hard to win the Champions League”
“We played a solid game. Things went well for us and this motivates us to keep working hard. There were periods where we had to work hard because Roma are a good side, but we did well and we won. During the game there were a few situations where we were attacking and we found it difficult to reorganise ourselves. We know that and we must work to put it right as soon as possible”.

Casemiro: “The people in the stands are always behind us and we have to be together because in the end it's Real Madrid who wins”.

“I always try to work in the best way and my team mates help me too. We all believe that we can fight for the Champions League. We're working towards that and we want to keep on track. The European Cup is an important title and we want to win it. In the quarter-final there are no easy opponents. They are all strong and we'll have to go in to it with integrity”.

Casemiro: “We always get help from the stands”
“I always want to play, but you have to respect the coach's decision. Bit by bit I’m playing games and finding my rhythm and I'm feeling better. We have a great coach who knows what he is doing and I'm ready. We kept a clean sheet today, qualified for the next round and now we'll look towards the La Liga game".   

Support from the fans
“If we get help from the stands of course it's easier. The people in the stands are always behind us and they're our thermometer out on the pitch. They always help us and we have to be together because in the end it's Real Madrid who wins”.

Teammates in the centre of the field 
“We know that Kroos and Modric are great players. It doesn't matter who plays. We know that we have a lot of success in the centre of the field”.
