"They're a very different team to the one we faced in the Super Cup, he added".
Pablo Laso spoke to the media to preview Real Madrid's next match-up, which sees the team take on Fuenlabrada on Sunday at the WiZink Center (12:30pm CET): "They'll force us to be fully focused right from the off. It'll be tough because this Fuenlabrada team is a very different team to the one we met in the Super Cup. They've had the time to train and improve and against Estudiantes they showed what they're capable of. That means that we have to head into the game thinking that it'll be a difficult and tough contest".

"Fuenlabrada has gradually started to find its feet. It's a team that has had a big turnover of players and the Super Cup came too soon for them. We played well and soon established a good lead. We're now nearly a month on from that and can see that they're now a different team, with players that are hitting form and who already know the league".

Thursday's exertions against Maccabi
"The team is doing OK. We had to put a lot of effort in on Thursday night because Maccabi is a very physical team and they pushed us all the way. We had the odd player carrying a knock but in the past two days the team has been able to recover and train. We had a good session today".

Positive vibes
"What I'm most bothered about are the vibes, the team's improvement and the new things we can be doing to improve. Wins help with that, but our duty is to continue to improve as a team. We've also brought Mejri in and have to start welcoming other players back. We know just how demanding this competition is".
