Lucas Vázquez got the second goal against Villarreal and this is how he described the mood around the team after the game: “After eight consecutive wins the team is full of confidence, with desire to win and to go in to the final stages with things to play for. We have to keep working, game by game and we'll see what happens. I'm happy with my contribution”.

“Barcelona are first, Atlético second and we are third. They are the favourites at the moment, it's another thing whether they'll win it or not. I've got a good relationship with Ramos and the goal celebration was a joke from the dressing room, a little greeting of ours”.

Modric: We've got a squad that can fight for titles”
“We played fantastically from the start, we got three good goals and we have to continue putting pressure on the other teams. We have to do our thing and see if anyone above us slips up. We must focus n what we have to do, we're playing well”.

Good play
“We are Real Madrid and we've got a squad that can fight for titles. The eleven plus the bench do their thing and it's important that during the season everyone is ready. The game in Vallecas will be difficult and after that we will think about the Champions League. We're full of confidence, we're playing well and we're going to keep going until the end of the season”.

“The ovation from the Bernabéu is impressive. It makes me happy to score a goal after so long. I'm really grateful for the support from the fan. I'm sure that the fans will be with us until the end and I hope we can give them a lot of happiness”.

Varane: “With this confidence we can win titles”
“We're thinking about our game. We have to win all of them, we're in good form, physically and tactically very good, we've got to fight until the end. Anything could happen, we're thinking about what we can do. We need to keep a cool head and play our football”.

Good form
“We can't affect what happens in the other games. We're on a good run, the team looks good and we're all geared up for the end of the season. A lot of things have happened in a month and as a result of that we have to fight until the end. With the confidence and spirit that we're got we can win titles”.

Casemiro: “We are growing a lot and playing well”.

“Cristiano has a slight problem with his foot but we don’t know much. We will see what happens tomorrow. We don’t know if it is serious, hopefully it won’t be important. Cristiano is very important for us”.

“Bale is a great player and a good guy. He has great talent and quality and is very important for us. He always gives us a lot when he plays”.

Danilo: “Real Madrid never give up”
“Real Madrid never give up. We always work hard and when difficulties arise we are united. Cristiano seemed ok to me and I think everything is ok. I can understand that it’s difficult if he has something worrying because he takes care of himself and he’s a very strong player”.

The fans
“It is not an easy situation but the fans whistle at players who could play better. I was not at my best but I fight for Real Madrid and their fans. We work to help Real Madrid and I want to dedicate the victory to the doctors and physiotherapists, who are vital for us to be in good shape. I’m certain I can improve and today was a test”.

Getting better
“I keep working because recent times have not been easy but I’m happy with the confidence that Zidane gives me and the rest of the squad. I’m happy at Madrid and I hope to stay for many more years than I signed for”.

Casemiro: “We have to win all of our games”
“We did a lot of things well. We will remain humble and fight for La Liga. We don’t need to think about the rest, we have to think about our game and then we will see what happens. We know we have to win everything. We are growing a lot and playing well. We do what the coach wants but I always say we have to be calm and humble”.

Cristiano’s injuries
“I asked him and something was bothering him, but we know that he is like a machine and I’m sure he’ll be fine by the end of the week. He didn’t look worried. We know that for Cristiano to miss a game that there must be some things wrong”.
