"Every EuroLeague game from here on in is a battle and we want to secure our playoff spot", he added.
Usman Garuba, who today celebrates his 19th birthday, offered his thoughts ahead of Thursday's EuroLeague Round 29 Clásico match-up, to be played at the WiZink Center (9pm CET). The madridista center commented that: "The team comes into the game in good shape. We know that every game in the EuroLeague from here on in will be a battle and we want to secure a playoff spot. It's a Clásico and we head into it with that extra motivation, but we're treating it as just another game".
"The Clásicos come down to fine margins and you have to show more intensity than the opposition. Our aim is to qualify and to do so in the best possible position. We take things one step at a time and work to improve our results. It would be a good birthday present and would give us a bit of revenge after the Copa del Rey".
Playing for Real Madrid
"It's a real joy to play for this team day in, day out, and I'm so grateful. Real Madrid means everything to me, it's the team that's helped me to grow in every sense".
