"It'll be a strange match, but we must be focused on our game and go out and win".
Nacho spoke to the media with just over 24 hours to go before Real Madrid take on Legia Warszawa at the Wojska Polskiego stadium and the youth-team graduate had the following to say: "It'll be a tough game and it'll be different because we're playing away from home, behind closed doors. It'll be a strange one, but we must be focused and go out and win. It'll be the first time that many of us have ever played behind closed doors. We'll have to be focused on our game and try to get the three points".

"I've never played in an empty stadium and it'll be like when I was youngster. There'll be a ball out there, as there always is, and the same players as always will take to the pitch. You'll be able to hear everything and I'm sure that the cameras and microphones will be more alert than ever. There are things that go on out on the pitch that are meant to stay there".

Possible starting berth
"Every member of the squad wants to play, but at Real Madrid there's a lot of competition and it's very tough. We want to continue to make the gaffer's life difficult and he's said that he's delighted with our work. For any player it's easier to play when you play week in, week out. I'm ready to play, I work hard every day to be given chances like this one and I'll fight hard to get given more opportunities". 

Every time I pull this shirt on, it means that I'm continuing to achieve my aims and objectives.

"I feel very good, strong and excited. I work hard to make everything positive and I try to make the most of each and every moment".

Feeling relaxed
"I'm relaxed because this is my club and it's where I want to be. I'd love to play every game, but I'm aware of the club I'm at and I'm relaxed about that. Every year I've improved my game and when I see that I'm not progressing, decisions will have to be made. I'm relaxed and am feeling happy".

"Anything can happen in football and each season I try to play more games to gradually try and earn a starting place. I'm happy where I am, I work hard to play 60 games a season and I hope that it'll one day become a reality".

Security concerns?
"The security controls are very tight and the players shouldn't get involved in these things. We have to be focused on the game. We're relaxed and feel safe and there's no problem".
