"We played to a good tempo and produced some good stuff, particularly in the first half", commented Courtois.
Real Madrid drew against the Real Sociedad (0-0) at the Reale Arena in match day two of the LaLiga season. Odegaard, starting for the first time for Real Madrid in the league had this to say: "It feels good, however we didn't get the win therefore I'm not happy. It was nice to play for Madrid. I’m on the same wavelength as my teammates, but it' s always a bit difficult at the beginning. They’re amazing players which makes it easier for me".

"It was a very special game against friends and good people. Zidane wants me to help the team by creating chances, scoring goals and playing between the lines when we attack".

Courtois: "We played to a good tempo"
"They haven't created many chances, apart from the one good save that I made and another one that went wide. We didn't create many chances because that final pass didn't find its man. We caused them problems, but we didn't manage to convert them in the area".

Courtois: "We caused them problems, but we didn't manage to convert them in the area".

"We feel as if we're in good shape fitness-wise, but Real Sociedad have been training for longer than us. We played to a good tempo and produced some good stuff, particularly in the first half. After the break, we struggled to demand the ball. We performed well, apart from the last 25 minutes".”.
 
Clean sheet
"If we don't score many goals, we have to remain organised and not concede. We've got some players with amazing quality, like Karim, who is a fine finisher. We've always got the chance of scoring and it's important that we keep a clean sheet. After the confinement, we won several of our games 1-0 and we have to try and keep that up. I'm in no doubt that we've got goals in us and they'll come".
