"We're going into the final stretch full of confidence", said Nacho.
Real Madrid beat Celta at Balaídos thanks to two goals from Benzema and one from Marco Asensio. The Mallorcan midfielder has this to say about the game: "We put in a very complete performance. We were very solid defensively and at the other end we created chances which we took advantage of and I think that was the key".
 
"We're on a good run of form and we always want more. We know that we're going into the final stretch of the season, every game is very important for us and we want to win them all. We’re taking it one step at a time and we've got to rest for a couple of weeks and then we go again for the next game".
 
Compact
"We knew we were up against a good side and, as I said, we were solid and compact in defence and we knew that up front we were going to create chances, and that's what happened".
 
On the scoresheet for the second game in a row
"I'm pleased, but there's a lot of work to do. I'm very clear about the route we have to take as a team, and if we all pull in the same direction, everything will go very well".
 
Nacho: "The team is on a good run"
"We're very happy with the win. It was a very important match because it's never easy away to Celta, even if there's no home crowd. We're now going to push on in the league".

Nacho: "The team's on a good run, stringing together very important wins".

“Generally speaking, we put on a good display. Going two goals ahead made the difference. The second half was more end to end, but the team defended really well and was solid, like we’ve been in recent games. We’re pleased to get the three points”.

Best spell of the season
“This is definitely our best spell of the season. We’ve put together a long run of good wins and draws. We go into the final stretch full of confidence, but that’s football. You have to keep working hard. The important thing is that we go into the international break with another win”.

Final straight
“Every league season is different. Last year, when we return after the break due to the pandemic, we won 10 and drew once from 11 games. But we can’t expect to do the same again because football is really complicated. But the team is in great shape. We’ve won some really important games, like the one today. As we always say, we have to take each game at a time and work hard every day”.
