NEWS | 17/08/2017

They both got their chance in the second half and did their bit in clinching the Spanish Super Cup.
Dani Ceballos and Theo will never forget the night of the 16th of August 2017. Against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu, both players made their official debuts for Real Madrid and got their hands on the second title of the season in the process: the Spanish Super Cup. The defender came on for Marco Asensio in the 75th minute, while the Seville-born midfielder replaced Kroos with 80 minutes gone. Both players had previously featured in the team’s pre-season tour of the United States.

Theo: “We played very well at the Camp Nou and the Bernabéu”
“I’m thrilled to have made my debut at the Bernabéu. We have to keep working hard and I hope to win many more titles with Real Madrid. We played very well both at the Camp Nou and at home and as a result we’ve won the Super Cup. We can’t let up now, we have to keep working. Zidane rotates a lot and he needs the entire team”.

Ceballos “The team have worked really hard in pre-season”
“It's always nice to make your debut against the eternal rival and I felt comfortable alongside my teammates. This team has worked really hard since the beginning of pre-season and the objective was to win both Super Cups. We had to give it our all in both games, we were the better side and we've got to keep on in the same vein”.
