NEWS | 30/04/2016 | Javier García (San Sebastián)“Only a win would do and we achieved our objective”, said Nacho.
“Madrid's philosophy means we must fight as long as there is any chance. After the sacrifices and everything we're been through this season, it's a very exciting end to the league for anyone who loves football. We played first today and we had to get ahead in the table. The team has responded yet again, put the pressure on, and now we have to hope that the others slip up”.
The performance of the team
“We weren't having a great run with the injuries to Benzema and Cristiano, but we have a big squad and whoever plays performs at a very high level. It's the key to success and we must secure all the remaining points”.
Nacho: “The team was very compact”
“Objective achieved, only winning would do, and we knew that it was a tough game but the team was very compact and we created clear chances. We keep getting points and doing our job. It's difficult, because on Wednesday we're got an important match, but we couldn't forget that today was essentially the same”.
"The team has been demonstrating for many weeks that we can fight, stand up tall and we're getting results. We know Barcelona and Atlético are great teams like we are, but we need to win every point”.
“He's playing very well and scoring goals. He's very important and just what we need until the end of the season. He's been fantastic, he's very powerful in the air and that's a huge positive. We hope he keeps scoring goals”.
Semi-final against Manchester City
“The win here is also really important in building confidence for Wednesday. We're very hungry, it's a vital game and we're playing for a place in the final. The excitement of the Bernabéu and all of our fans will be with us. We're playing at home in front of our own and with their support we're going to go for it”.
Cristiano and Benzema
“Let's hope they're ready for Wednesday because they're two key players. We have to wait and see what happens”.
