"We're on the right track to achieve our targets", stated the captain, who drew level with Guti on 542 appearances for Real Madrid.
After starting tonight's match against Borussia Dortmund at the Bernabéu, Sergio Ramos racked up his 542th appearance for Real Madrid to take his place amongst the club's top 10 appearance-makers. The Whites' captain has moved level with Guti, whose appearances came between the 1995/6 and 2009/10 campaigns, and the next club legend in Ramos's sights is Míchel (559 appearances).The top three spots in these rankings are occupied by Raúl (741), Iker Casillas (725) and Sanchís (710).

Sergio Ramos spoke to the press following the clash with the German side: “It was a very intense game, especially in the first half an hour. Our level dropped a bit after that and they were able to take their chances and get back on terms. Our persistence ultimately paid off and we’ve picked up a morale-boosting win to finish the group stage. I’ll have to wear the mask for a while yet, but I decided not to use it for tonight so I’d be a bit more comfortable”.

On the whole, the group stage has been good.

"You’ve got to beat the best teams if you want to win the Champions League. The group stage has been good on the whole and now it’s just a case of waiting for the last-16 draw. We have to keep improving and produce our best performances to find that consistency we're looking for. Things don't always work out as you want them to, but we're on the right track to achieve our targets. We'll now just have to see we get on".
