"It was a perfect night and we come away with good vibes", declared Odriozola.
After putting Viktoria Plzen to the sword in their own backyard, Real Madrid's Casemiro spoke to the media and had the following to say: "It was an important night, particularly because we scored five and kept a clean sheet. Tonight's result helps us to build our confidence. In our previous games the ball hasn't wanted to go in and today we had the chances to have even scored more. We've now got to turn our attentions to the Celta game, which also promises to be a really tough one".

"We know that Real Madrid is the most demanding club in the world and we have fans that support us right until the last, but we always have to go out and win. We're treating Solari like a Real Madrid coach and with a lot of respect. And if things go well, why not give him a chance?

Odriozola: "We needed a performance like that"
“It was a perfect night. We needed a performance like that to boost ourselves. We have started a great run of results and this one was emphatic, it completely changes the situation we were in and will prepare us well for our game in LaLiga this coming Sunday. We feel great, and we've now paved the way to take our place in the next round".

“The fans are always demanding, but we have to respect that. Working hard is the only thing that will get us back fighting fit and feeling confident. The quality we have is beyond all doubt. We are not thinking about the management situation. We are happy, focussing on training, giving 100%, competing and winning. We will fight for our coach to the death. Solari was a tremendous player and is proving to be a formidable coach”.

Ceballos: "The team put in a fine all-round performance"
"Tonight's was a strong all-round performance. We came out all guns blazing and put the game to bed in the first half. We played some good stuff and secured the three points, which was the main thing. The team put in a great performance, played well and the result reflects that".

Ceballos: "We played some good stuff and secured the three points, which was the main thing".

“Lopetegui was a coach who really trusted me and I have to thank him for that because he gave me quite a lot of game time. The most important thing was for the team to win and when there's a change of coach it's not the sweetest of times, but it's done the team a lot of good because we've claimed three important wins".

Solari and whether he will continue
“After what happened against Barcelona we were in a bad place, we needed to change the situation. With Solari we have turned a corner and want to continue that same dynamic. We all know Santi, he's a focused coach who does not let up. He said we needed goals and a clean sheet so we did just that. We are really happy to work with him and to get these three wins”.

“He deserves the respect of all madridistas and the dressing room. He played in the Super Cup and the Champions League. He has some incredible goalkeeping talents, Courtois and Keylor are working hard every day, both competing to be number 1”.

Reguilón: “It was a great game”
“It was a great game, we got three important points and are still in the competition. The coach is raring to keep going and has faith in us and if we keep on like this then why wouldn't he stay on? The decision isn't down to me, I just concentrate on playing football. Anyone that comes on board and can offer something will be welcomed".
