“We ran a lot and that helped. Today was important for us to pick up the pace and start winning. We are Real Madrid and we cannot down tools at any moment. We have to face up to the challenges, weather the storm and keep fighting. Our chances are getting slimmer, but there is a long way to go, and we are fighting in three different competitions. We have the Copa this week and we are all looking forward to defending the badge of this club”.
Casemiro: “What happened today has happened all season”
“We need to stand united now more than ever. When we lose, we lose as one. What happened today has happened all season. We are playing well, fighting, creating chances, but we're not scoring goals. They had two or three chances and scored, there's no explaining it”.
“Football can be like that, you can score and then they can get in behind you. We need to stay switched on for the full 90 minutes so that they don't do us any harm. They were three important points. Nothing is impossible in this life but LaLiga is difficult. We are focussed on all competitions, we are taking it one game at a time and not fixating on making a comeback in LaLiga. Madrid have to fight for everything and always look to win. We understand why the fans are disappointed”.
