NEWS | 22/04/2021 | Bárbara Jiménez“We're on the right track, we're going to fight to the end", added Marcelo.
“Behind every player is a vast amount of hard work and it's been a tough season in my case with the injuries, I've spent more than half the campaign on the side-lines. It's really tough to get back in shape and find the confidence to play at your best. You have to be at 200% in every game here and produce your best performances, it's difficult sometimes. I scored today and played well so it feels fantastic, I'm really happy".
“From the start, the coach's plan was always for Marcelo and I to get forward so we could show off our best qualities".
“Playing with three centre-backs and two wing-backs allows you to be higher up when pressing and going forward. The coach's approach was perfect. We'll carry on in this vein".
Marcelo: “We're on the right track”
“We went out there with the hunger to put in a good performance and win the game. The team flew out the blocks, pressing high and stealing the ball back well. That was one of our key tactics for the game. We know there are no easy games in LaLiga. Today might not have seemed as tough as other matches but we played really well".
“We work really hard. We have to make sure we are focussed in every minute of the game. We know what we have to do in each game and it’s working well, we’re on the right track. We’ll fight until the end. Real Madrid never give up and at least we can go to bed as league leaders. We’re going to keep fighting in every game and try not to drop points”.
“Karim helps us a lot and gives us so much in every game. We know he has great ability and we have to make sure we take advantage of it”.
“We’re well up for the game and we’re aiming to get to the final. We’re in the semi-finals again and we have to take our chance and enjoy the experience”.
