““It was a great game to watch and play in”, said Casemiro.
Real Madrid's vice-captain, Marcelo, discussed the team's draw with Atlético in the first derby at the Wanda Metropolitano. When asked if they had lost the league already, he said: "I've been in worse positions at Real Madrid and we've turned them around. We don't have to think about the 10-point deficit, just focus on our own job because we're on the right track. We have to try and win all the remaining games. Nothing is impossible. Despite the result, we played a good game and this is the way we have to go".

"Madrid were the better side. We had a lot more of the ball, showed confidence and we'll improve now going into the upcoming games. We've got a big squad but we need to get all the players fit so the coach can call on everyone”.

Controversial plays
“This is what happens in football. I want my team to win by playing good football, I prefer not to talk about refs. I was far away but you’d have to ask the ref if he saw that, whether he saw Sergio go down and make contact with Lucas. It was a hard blow".

Casemiro: “The goals will come”
“It was a great game to watch and play in. A worthy derby. I feel like we’ve dropped two points. We looked to score a goal, as always, and we wanted to play football. We should not lose our heads, a draw here against Atlético is also a good result”.

“The goals will come because we have great players like Cristiano, he is the best in the world. I am disappointed with the result but pleased that we were able to play well”.
