“I’m really happy and I’m feeling better all the time”, said the forward.
Real Madrid got the better of Celta in their first game of 2021 and Marco Asensio, who made sure of the win at the Di Stéfano, expressed his delight at getting on the scoresheet and sealing the points: “I’m happy with the performance and to pick up the points. The team performed brilliantly in defence and attack. We knew this was a hugely important day for us. From a personal point of view, I’m really happy, I’m feeling better all the time and it’s my first goal of the season”.
“We’d spoken prior to the game about how we could cause problems by winning the ball back high up and so it proved. Celta were on a good run, they’re great going forward and strong on the ball. We had to focus on ourselves and we knew that if we did our job well we’d be taking home three points”.

"Pressing is part of our identity and we need to keep it up, win or lose. That’s why we kept pushing forward, looking for more goals so we could take all three points”.

Personal efforts
“It’s a long process, I knew it would be difficult but you start getting more minutes, more games under your belt and now we’re seeing the results”.
