“We played a good match and scored as many goals as possible”, said Casilla.
Marco Asensio scored a double against Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa on his Copa del Rey debut and had this to say about the win: “We knew it wasn’t an easy game and we had to take it as seriously as possible. We played a great match. The tie is effectively over but we mustn’t relax in the return leg. I’m really happy to get the goals and the win”.

"We needed to be up for it and disciplined right throughout because at any given moment they were capable of scoring, as we saw. We've got the win, which was our aim and we hope to continue in this vein".

Casilla: “I was comfortable during the game”
“They played a good match and had chances but we knew we had to play our own game and score as many goals as possible. We played a good game”.

Asensio: "We mustn’t relax in the return leg”.

“When it’s been a while since you’ve played, you lose the competitive rhythm but playing is always an opportunity, a reward and you have to take advantage of it. I was comfortable during the game. The most important thing is to keep working every day and when I have to play, to try and do the best I can”.

“It's great to have such a deep, quality squad. Those of us who play try to make sure that we don't feel the absence of the ones who usually play and we have to make the most of our opportunities. We're a very close-knit group”.

"We know all about his quality and that he's got a real eye for goal. Every time he's handed a chance he delivers and I'm really happy for him".

"He was really keen to play. It wasn't easy for him out there, after nearly a year without playing, but he's working very hard and over time he'll get more opportunities".
