“Benzema played a great back-heel, which practically put me through without a goalkeeper. It's his goal", said the Brazilian
Real Madrid beat Espanyol to move two points clear at the top of LaLiga. Casemiro, who scored the winning goal, explained: "That's three more points we've got, another final we've won and we're going for LaLiga. It would be unfair not to talk about the part Karim played in my goal. It's a great back-heel, which practically put me through without a goalkeeper. As well as credit for Benzema, we also have to give it to the whole team.
 
"I know Benzema and it's normal for him to do things like this. Karim's quality is not as a 9, it's as a 10. I already know how he plays and I ask for the ball into space, then he pulls off that incredible back-heel and the goal is his".
 
Tough match
“We were playing against a team who came out to fight to the death. But after the goal, we did a great job at maintaining the lead because we all defended together. We should also appreciate the fact it’s another clean sheet and that’s important for the defence. We’re taking it game by game. Now we have to focus on Getafe, which will be a difficult clash”.
 
Motivation
“We have to play with heart and passion because we want this LaLiga title. This year we’re among the teams who have conceded the least goals in Europe and we’ve got the quality up top, so we know we’re going to score goals. We have to focus on ourselves, there’s still a long way to go".
