"Winning the title is in our hands and we’re only thinking about our matches", stated Asensio.
At the end of the match, Nacho, who opened the scoring in the win against Sevilla, explained the goal that made it 1-0: "The goal was a case of quick thinking. I saw that the players weren’t organised and the goalkeeper a little out of place, so I decided to have a shot. I’m very happy with the goal and the win. We have two very difficult finals coming, but the team is in good shape, involved and confident".

"We’re Real Madrid and we have to go for every point. We now have to think about Wednesday. The ovation for James was very nice. The whole stadium has applauded him, he’s a great player and I don’t think it's a goodbye".

Asensio: "We had a great game"
"Today was another final, we had a great game and we’re very happy with the victory. Winning the title is in our hands and we’re only thinking about our matches, and winning what’s left to win in the league. We’re only thinking about Vigo, we want to win there and then we can look at the Malaga game. Nacho has shown he was switched on in the goal that opened the scoring and we congratulated him in the changing room".

Navas: "The team are calm and on the right track".

“I get on great with Cristiano and that shows on the pitch. Since I arrived here at Real Madrid he welcomed me and for that I'm thankful. It is easy to get on with him”.

Navas: “We're really satisfied”
“We have done the most important thing, which is to get the three points, and we're really satisfied. The team are calm but we still have a way to go. We're on the right track, not resting as we still haven't won anything. We have seen tough moments against big teams like these, but the team did well and we kept calm throughout”.

Praise for James
“James has his contract and as always, he is working in a professional manner. We love him as a person and admire him as a player. He is motivated and always ready to play”.
