“It was a big test and the team stood up to it”, added Carvajal.
Real Madrid took all three points against Real Sociedad in the match where Mayoral, who got the opening goal at Anoeta, said: "I’m very happy, we’ve had a great game in general. We knew that it was going to be difficult and we got the result we were looking for. We had to win because we went in to it on the back of two draws in the league and this victory was important".
"We’re very happy, every game is a final and more so at this ground. Not many teams will pick up points here and we took the game to them. We had to get back to winning ways in the league and we did that. We have to carry on like this, remain focused and keep working because that's how the results come. We’re now concentrating on the Betis game".
"I've been working hard for these opportunities all week. For me to play is a massive thing and I’ll keep working hard to have more chances. There are a lot of forwards here and I'm happy to be one of them"
"If the coach puts me on it's because he thinks that I’m ready. I’m grateful for the confidence he has shown in me”.
Carvajal: "The team has stood up to the test"
"If we’d have slipped up today we could have been six or seven points behind our rivals. It was a very important game for us, a big test away from home with a lot of players out and the team has stood up to the test".

Navas: "Bale has shown the quality that he's got".

“I’m pleased for Mayoral and Bale, they’re working very well. They both played a great game, they were fantastic in everything they did and helped us bag the win. We’ve got a very good squad and Borja has the ability to chip in with goals, just as he’s shown today”.
Contract extension
“It’s wonderful, I’m proud to have extended my contract at this magnificent club, a club that means the world to me. I hope I can keep helping out and that I can be here forever”.

Navas: “We started very strongly and did a great job”
“We’re really thrilled, thanks to God we were able to get three very important points. We knew the level of the opposition we were up against and also the mistakes we’d been making and today we started very strongly and did a great job. The team showed improved attitude today”.
“He’s an excellent player and he always helps us. Despite what people may say, he always works hard and puts a shift in and today he got his reward. Nobody likes to hear people speaking negatively about anyone, but he’s a professional, and he has confidence in his ability and knows the team is behind him. He showed his quality today”.
“I’m happy to be playing alongside the best in the world, it’s unbelievable. We’re a team who always give it our all and sometimes things go well and other less so, but we’re in this together and that’s beautiful, it’s great to be part of it”.
“He’s worked hard and waited for his chance. He’s a young lad who is eager to grow and to run hard, that’s positive for the group. We’re happy because he helped us out tonight”.
