“It's going to be a very tough game against a side that's up there with us”, said Causeur.

Chus Mateo and Causeur gave their thoughts on the EuroLeague round 12 clash with Monaco. The Real Madrid coach said: "We have to defend against a team with an ability to penetrate and fantastic individual talent. We have to be really tight as a team, solid in defence and don't give up any turnovers. Monaco are the side that punish their opponents' turnovers the most".

"We're working well. It's easier to build on a win than on a defeat. We can't let ourselves get carried away by our streaks and we need to have the desire to improve. The most important thing is to have a good working atmosphere and not let outside noise distract us".

"It's always good to play at home. I know that the only thing the fans want from us is to give our all in every game, and I want to transmit that to the players. Sometimes the ball goes in and sometimes it doesn't, but we'll always give it our all".
Causeur: "We have to give everything"
"We're aware that it's going to be a very tough game against a side that's up there with us. They're one of the most physical teams in the Euroleague, and very talented. We have to defend well and don't allow them to gain confidence. It's going to be a very hard game, but we're at home and know that the fans will be behind us. We have to be at our best to get the win".
