“We gave it our all and that's the way to win titles", added Casemiro.
Real Madrid took all three points from the Benito Villamarín, and goalscorer Dani Carvajal discussed the Clash: “We started very strongly during the opening few minutes but then the team began to leave too much space between the lines and Betis put us under big pressure. Today, our main goal was to work defensively and to keep a clean sheet, and we managed just that. We got the goal we needed and take an important win which sends us into the international break in more relaxed fashion”. 
“At half-time the coach made a few tactical corrections to help us hurt Betis and increase our intensity in the press, and that helped us win the ball back higher up the pitch. There are a lot of very good quality players here and that's clear. Miguel came on today and did a great job".
His goal celebration
“It came from the fact I've had a difficult time of it from a personal perspective lately. All that anger and hard work that you put in for a long time to get back fit came to the surface. I'd like to dedicate it to my wife and my son and I hope the goal marks the start of a good run".

Carvajal: “The goal was to keep a clean sheet and we managed just that”.

"I just want to keep this up. It's been a long time since I felt this good. Now, with the international break we can rest up and recharge our batteries".
“As the coach said a few days back, anyone who comes in to strengthen the squad is a positive. Let's see if he can strengthen us because he's a great player.
Casemiro: “The key was the effort from everyone"
“It's always tough to come and play here, the key was the effort from everyone. We have to congratulate them, we gave it everything we had. We started well in the opening ten minutes and then they controlled the game, but they didn't create many chances and that's vital". 
“Playing against Betis is always difficult because they have quality players. We have to carry on in the same vein. There's still a very long way to go in LaLiga, we're working well and this is the way to win titles. These are three very important points" .
Carvajal and Benzema
“We already know all about Karim's quality and I'm thrilled for Carvajal, it was a super finish".
