"I went for it and it couldn't have come off any better", stated the defender when reflecting on his goal.
Nacho netted a spectacular volleyed effort to claim Real Madrid's sixth goal of the night and the Whites' defender had the following to say about his finish at the final whistle in León: "I was calling for James to pass me the ball, I went for it and it couldn't have come off any better. I'm really happy because whenever I score a goal in these colours, it's always very important for me. I'm here to keep on working hard and defending well, that's my job".

"We came here looking for the win and we've managed to get it. These games are banana skins because they're good sides in their leagues and if you have an off-day they can hurt you. Overall, the team performed very well and was solid".

A whole team effort
"The coach knows that he's got a great squad. We're all good, young players and the fact that there's such competition for places is a positive thing for him, and in the long term it's very good for the team. It's a good that the defenders chip in with goals and the attacking players help out in defence, that shows that the whole team is working together".
