“It was our best game since December, we're very pleased”, added the coach.
Solari was thrilled with Real Madrid's superb derby win at the Wanda Metropolitano and he shared his thoughts on the game with the press: “It was a team win and there's no other way to get something here against a solid and competitive side, particularly when they're playing at home. We were strong in every facet of the game. It's probably our best performance since December”.

“It was a very complete display and that's the only way we were going to take anything here against a team who are better every year. They're a great side with a fantastic coach, we head home very happy. We were good at the back, up top, we pressed brilliantly and were solid on set-pieces, both offensively and defensively”.

Keys to the win
“We're all part of the team and the key thing is the players, who are the ones who train, show the physical commitment and heart in every game. The players deserve 95% of the credit for the win. The remaining bit is down to the rest of us - the medical team, directors, fans… Real Madrid always fight to the end and we have to keep going. We have to keep our feet on the ground and continue working hard”.

Vinicius Jr.
“He's just 18 and he's got years ahead of him in the game. He can go as far as he likes in the years he's got left. He's a kid, some of us might have kids his age. He's just got here and of course he's getting better all the time. He's learning from the best and he's being well-advised and looked after by the rest of the team”.


"Reguilón has set a precedent for all the youth team players, he shows that there is always a chance for them if you have talent, dedication and a hard-working outlook. With those you get into the first Real Madrid squad".

"He came back into the dressing room smiling, he was happy with his goal. He rounded off a game that was intense and every day he seems to be better."

"The coaches aren’t allowed to see the replays and now all we can do is wait and hope the referee’s decision is right. It's one thing that we're all having to get used to."

"Two months ago we were playing well. Real Madrid are always the favourites regardless of form due to our history".
