“The team showed what it's capable of and this is the path to follow", added Lucas Vázquez.
Real Madrid booked their place in the Champions League last-sixteen by beating Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Di Stéfano and Thibaut Courtois was thrilled following the final whistle: “It was a great performance, one of our best of the year. Everything went very well, we were hugely effective and it was a good display all round. Everyone knows how important the Champions League is for Real Madrid and we always fight to the end. We've had other games where things just haven't gone for us but against Sevilla and today we've shown that we're in good shape".
“We're players with an awful lot of experience and we know how to play under pressure. It depends on the other team too, they can make life hard for you. We always come out with focus and desire and sometimes things go well, sometimes less so. We're growing, there are always ups and downs over the course of a season and we have to keep going".
“When you play for Real Madrid you know you'll be under pressure if the results aren't coming. We've always had faith in the coach and in the team and we showed that".

Rodrygo: "We achieved our goal of qualifying for the next round".

"We have another important game in the league on Saturday against Atlético and we have to win. They are a team that haven't been conceding many goals and we have to try to hurt them”.
Lucas: “We needed the win”
“We played really well both today and in Milan. The team showed what it's capable of and it's the path to follow. Rodrygo is a great player. It's really easy to play with him. He understands the game really well. We're really pleased with the victory. The team needed to win and it stands us in good stead for the future. It was important both for the manager and for us. We make a good team when we are together. We have no doubt about our ability”.
“I just get on with my job every day and that's the important thing. Sometimes in football it doesn't on just one party or the other. I'm happy to be at Real Madrid”.

Rodrygo: “We all played well”
“I'm really pleased that we have qualified. It was our main objective today and I'm also pleased with my performance. We all played really well. We're happy because we finished well and have qualified, which is what Real Madrid have to do. We've had some difficult games and now there will be more tough ones. We have to keep training hard, keep the focus and keep winning”.
