“The last three games have been important to gain confidence and a feel-good factor", said the Brazilian.
Carlos Casemiro headed in Real Madrid's opening goal in the derby: "It's important to talk about the last three games, not just today's, which was a great performance against a great side. We played really well in the Champions League. We controlled the game and also away to Sevilla. We're improving, playing better, we're more solid and playing as a team”.
Bettoni always highlights the importance of set pieces. He said I could hurt them at the front post and Toni's cross was perfect. Kroos, as always, showed his quality and class and I headed it in. But everyone deserves the praise”.
Top level performance
"Teams have their ups and downs, but that's normal because there are many games. I said in the press conference that we're not machines. We've played three very solid games and they were important ones to gain confidence and a feel-good factor. Everyone has worked really well. We're playing good football, at a high intensity and controlling the games".

Lucas and Kroos
“It’s no effort at all for me to talk about Lucas and Toni. I've known them for a long time now and it's an honour for me to talk about them. You can see out on the pitch how they have to play”.
“We have great trust in the coach, we give our all for him, for this badge and this club. We’re all in this together and are a tight-knit unit”.
“We’ve got a lot of very good referees in LaLiga but, in my view, Mateu is the best of them all”.
