"For us to set foot on the pitch again is a huge blessing", he added.
Real Madrid beat Éibar at the Di Stéfano Stadium on their return to LaLiga action. Sergio Ramos, who netted the game's second goal, assessed the team's performance: “We felt in good shape. We've worked hard in recent weeks to recover some of the form we've lost, but the team has gradually started to get back into a rhythm and to play as well as we possibly can".

"It's no surprise it wasn't a wonderful performance and we have things we can improve. Physically the team was fine, you can expect to play with the intensity we showed in the first 45 minutes for the full 90. We dropped off a bit and left more spaces, but we'll learn from it going into our 10 remaining games”.
“The three points are great for the group from a morale perspective. Now we have to get back to work because the next match is on Thursday and we have to be ready. I picked up a bit of a knock, it's just a strain. I'm happy to be back and to have got all three points. We've got 10 finals to come and we have to try and win the lot”.
Return to normality
"For us to set foot on the pitch again is a huge blessing. And it's a big positive for the whole country to have football back, to provide entertainment and get business and the economy back up and running so that everything returns to its natural place. It's important for everyone".

I'd like to send all my support to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one.

"It's been a bit strange, after such a big tragedy and with so many deaths, I take advantage of my position as captain to send a message and all my support to the people who have suffered the loss of their loved ones. It’s been a strange situation, in the early months of not being able to leave the house, you focus on the positive things like enjoying your family".
Five substitutions
"Having the extra changes is beneficial for everyone. Because of the extreme temperatures we’re going to face and the stage of the season we’re at, it’s positive for everyone".
