"We're all here to do our bit, and ultimately, that is where success lies", said Odriozola.
Vinicius Jr. scored Real Madrid's fifth goal against Melilla. Following the full-time whistle, the forward reflected: “It was a great performance and we're extremely satisfied. We were able to play well and win the game, which is the most important thing. My goal was a long time in coming but I'm pleased and a bit more relaxed having scored. The players told me the goal would come, I've worked very hard, taking gradually. All my teammates have helped me so much since my arrival here and I'm happy to see the team winning”.

“I've dreamed of playing for Madrid since I was a boy and if I score goals, I'm going to kiss the badge. When I play with Asensio, we link up and have exchanged three passes, but it's the same with the other players too. The lambretta is all part of my game, the same as any other Brazillian footballer, we always try and enjoy our football”.

Odriozola: “We mustn't be complacent”
“We're feeling fantastic, we've qualified, given a great account of ourselves and now it's on to the next one. You cannot be complacent at the start of the game and even if you've got a big advantage from the first leg, you have to give it your all or they can make life difficult. The best thing to come out of today is the desire and the attitude of all the players on the pitch. We're all here to do our bit, and ultimately, that is where success lies”.

Ceballos: "We've got a big squad and every player wants to give the manager a headache in that sense".

“You have to tell the new guys to enjoy the moment because making your debut with Real Madrid is something you only do once. Now LaLiga is back, we’re ready because it is a competition where we really need to push on. There are many players here, that is what squads are for and we will need them with so many games coming up”.

Ceballos: “We got the job done”
“Both games were big and we got the job done, getting into the last-16. The squad is large and we want to give the manager a headache in that sense. Today players really showed their worth, they competed to start and that makes the team better”.

“I spoke to the coach about who would come off the bench and at this club it is important. I feel comfortable and I'm thrilled to have the minutes I perhaps didn't get last year”.
