NEWS | 26/01/2020 | Alberto Navarro | PHOTOGRAPHER: Antonio Villalba"We knew they were going to make it difficult for us, but in the second half we grew in to the game", added Lucas Vazquez.
"We're happy with our goal, which was to get three points and go top of the table, and now it's time to continue picking up points. It's very early and the league season is very long, every time its more complicated and you can drop points anywhere and against any opponent. We’re going to go from match to match, trying to pick up three points each time and continue this dynamic, playing with personality, with a lot of initiative so that everyone can see Real Madrid playing with commitment and identity to try to achieve the goals".

"It was not just a hug from Zidane, it represented the whole team as we have that common objective and you can see that in the little details”.

In the first half, we knew what we were facing, they play with real intensity, they get into space and defend well, but in the second half we stepped it up. We are thrilled to be top of the league and hopefully we can go all the way”.
