“We got better as the game went on”, stated Valverde.
Lucas Vázquez spoke to the press about the win over Juventus in the second preseason game: "I think the team are doing fine. The work is going very well in these weeks of training, we are giving our best and that is reflected in these games. We are Real Madrid and all the players are doing very well and showing their importance, and I think that is positive for everyone. To wear the captain's armband, even if it's for just a moment in the second half, is something big, a source of pride, and I'm super happy."

"Today we played in a great stadium and we have noticed the support of the fans over 90 minutes. I think do not think Modric is going to leave. He will decide, but he is happy in Real Madrid. The president said he is not for sale, so we have to be calm."

Valverde: "I try to enjoy every moment"
"It's nice to win. We were improving as the match went on. We must continue to gather strength and prepare for what is coming, which is the most important for all the players. The team is doing very well and we left with a lot of enthusiasm. I personally try to enjoy this moment, the training and the time I spend in the hotel with these star players. Who knows what the future will hold".

"We played two games and we have to keep improving and correcting the things that the coach asks us to do. There is a lot left to go and each game helps us to refine our mistakes and prepare ourselves for what is important. Modric has shown at Real Madrid and when he lost the World Cup final that he is a star, a good player. My idol is Kroos and I played alongside him, I'll take that."
