"It was about time we won at the Bernabéu and we put in a great performance", declared Theo.
Marco Asensio was a starter in Madrid's win over Éibar and claimed the madridistas's second goal. The midfielder offered his thoughts at the final whistle: "I’m happy with the game and the way we played. We controlled all phases of the match and created a lot of chances. The result didn't flatter us. There were some flaws, but we performed well. We have to continue in this vein and now start to think about the Copa del Rey".
"My goal was a good team move, the ball fell to Isco, who played it over and picked me out and I hit it first time and it went in. We have a very good relationship and you can see that out on the pitch. It's plain to see when we play together".

Affection from the fans
"It's an incredible feeling. The affection from the fans is what counts and I try to repay them with performances like tonight's and with goals. We all have to pull in the same direction. I have to thank them for coming to the stadium and getting behind us like this".

Theo: "We dedicate this win to the fans"
"It was about time we won at the Bernabéu and we put in a great performance. We now have to continue to win our home games. We've always remained faithful to our game. Tonight we've kept a clean sheet and we dedicate this win to the fans".

Ceballos: "We head home happy with this result".

"I'm very happy to be playing alongside these teammates and I have to continue to develop as a player. We're right behind Benzema and for us he's the best striker around. As for Cristiano, he always wants to score, it wasn't to be tonight, but he'll continue to work hard to score goals".

Ceballos: "We need to move up a gear to kill games off"
"We went in search of a second and struggled and we need to move up a gear to kill the games off earlier. We head home happy with this 3-0 win and now turn our attentions to the Copa del Rey".

"I believe that Karim is the best number 9 in the world and you only have to look as far as his assist tonight. We're at the best club in the world and the Bernabéu faithful are free to think what they like, but they're behind us. I accept my role within the squad and feel very much at home at Real Madrid".
