"As a team, we all stood up and were counted and put in a good performance", added Vini Jr.
Karim Benzema, who roke the deadlock for Real Madrid in the win over Getafe, and Vinicius Jr., who laid on the goal, spoke to the media in the aftermath of the game at the Di Stéfano. The Frenchman reflected on the move that saw him net the opener in the following terms: “It was a good goal and a fine cross from Vini, I attacked it and put it into the back of the net. I’m going to keep working hard to help my teammates. We came into the game with a lot of confidence and belief. We came here to win, which is always really tough against Getafe”.
"This was a really important win and we’re just focussed on the league and what we do. We just have to keep on playing like this, as there’s still a long way to go.”
Positive vibes
“That’s football. Every match is like a cup final. You have to try not to drop any points and win every game. We’re professionals and we have a lot of faith in each other.  Madrid is the best club in the world and there’s always a lot of things said about us.”

Vini Jr.: “We have to keep picking up points to win LaLiga again”
“The team played really well.  We had a lot of injuries and we all stood up and were counted. We put on a good performance and it was tough, because Getafe always make it a hard game".

Benzema: "Every game is a cup final and we've got to try not to drop any points and win them all".

"They’re very compact and solid at the back, which makes it difficult to get in behind them. We had to be patient. I’m very pleased with the win. We have to keep on like this, picking up points to win LaLiga again”.

“I’ve never played there, but when I pull on this shirt, I always want to do my bit to help us win games. We’ve got to keep calm and focused to carry out what the coach asks of us. We played really well and won the game, which is the most important thing. We’ve also got our academy, which is there to help us out. Marvin played really well right until the final whistle”.

“I work on that pass a lot with Benzema in training to make things easier for everyone. I’m really pleased to have got an assist. I want to carry on doing my bit and performing well”.
