“The goalkeeper tried his best but he couldn't do anything. I celebrated wildly because we had been great both at the front and the back, with real goal scoring chances, and when you don't score you build up that frustration. The whole team were great”.
The win over Sevilla
“We showed the fans that we are working hard, that we are still here and we believe in ourselves. We were playing against our rivals at the top of the table and the game had it all, it was one of the best we have played, along with the Roma game. Everyone in the team gave their all. When we play like that, it goes well for us and that's why we won”.
“Real Madrid must make winning a habit. We’re working hard to improve, when you put the hours in then it pays off. It’s been a tough year so far because things aren’t going as we would like. The difference to the Leganés game was how the players were more united”.
Praise for the fans
“The fans really supported us out on the pitch. This is the way we have to continue if we’re to succeed at the end of the campaign. It was a game which showed the crowd they can support us all the way”.
“Solari’s team talk was largely to carry on like in the first half. He touched up a few elements of the game but the key thing was to continue with the same attitude”.
“I love him as a referee, he’s one of the best in Spain and in the world. Sometimes he gets it wrong but you have to give him credit, he always explains everything to you”.
