“The first half was great and that second goal killed the game”, added Carvajal.
Lucas Vázquez spoke to Realmadrid TV in the aftermath of the game against Valencia. The attacker, who scored Real Madrid's second goal of the night, commented that: "The team displayed the bravery that's typical of the big games and we've got to be really happy with how things went. In terms of our intensity and dominance, the first-half performance was very strong. We looked to regain possession in the opposition's half so as to be closer to their goal. We have to do more of that".

“Hard work pays off. We are unbeaten in 5 of 7 games and that's great. That means that defensively, from the forwards to the defenders, we're all pitching in, we stand united”

Two goals in the last two games
“I am happy to help the team with goals. Karim Benzema gave me two assists and he is showing that he is best forward in the world. Everything he does is spectacular and those around him benefit from it”.

Youth teamers in the first team
“It is great and shows the footballing base that Real Madrid has. It is no coincidence after so many years in the youth team”.

Carvajal "The first half was good" 
Carvajal spoke to the press after the win over Valencia. The full back was key in Real Madrid’s attacking exploits, said: “We are thrilled with that win. The first half was good and the team played with style. At 1-0 they had to attack and we took advantage of that, scoring the second goal. This and the Roma game were both intense”.

“The club’s aim in the coming years is to sign young players for mid to long term projects. They are doing well and I want to congratulate Marcos Llorente for two great games".

Ceballos: “The best moment of the season so far”
“We had a great first half against a tough rival and these are three important points to catch the others in the league and get into a good dynamic. We knew these three points were vital".

Reguilón: "We pressed high against a good rival and we were better".

"The first half was great, we held Valencia in their own half, this has been the best moment of the season so far. When Real Madrid press like that it is hard to beat us”.

Isco and Llorente
“The coach decided to use him as the third substitute. It is fundamental for us, we know the importance he has. We need him back fully as soon as we can get him, he is so important for us and we’ll need him this season. He has spent many years at the club and knows how hard it is to play here. He gives his all every single day”.We need all 25 players on form. Llorente is having a great moment and the work he has done and is doing is crucial”. 
Reguilón: "We've picked up three important points"
"We secured three important points against very tough opponents. Our first-half performance was really good and the 1-0 scoreline wasn't a true reflection. We pressed high up against what's a very dangerous side and were the better team".
"The Bernabéu faithful always get things right and they were behind us until the very end. At home, in front of our fans, things are easier for us. We improved and scored early on and that enabled us to relax".
"I was dead on my feet at the end. There was nothing left in the tank. We had a look at how I was this morning and I considered myself as being fit. I'm really happy and go all out in training, as we all do, but the most important thing is the three points and we now have to look to our next game".
Youth-team graduates
"There are a number of us youth-team products who are getting game time and we're winning football matches, which is the most important thing".
Modric and the Ballon d'Or
"Modric deserves the Ballon d'Or. It would make us proud and happy if he was to win it".
