Real Madrid battles to win in Granada, eyes on Barcelona
Real Madrid’s coach Zidane reacts after the win
“I will focus on the win and the three points, which were very important for us. We have to think that we are up against a team. When we play away we face a side and their fans. It is normal for it to be harder than at home”.
“We have to battle for every game and I am happy with the attitude of all the players. It was tough to get the win because it is a difficult pitch. The opponents have good players and make things difficult. That is football and we are not going to win every game easily”.
Praise for Modric
“He scored a fantastic goal, that gave us a boost, and above all, the three points. I am very happy with him because he needs to shoot more. He knows how to play in a lot of positions, also in 10. He had a phenomenal shot and I am happy for him”.
There will always be difficulties in a game. We are prepared for the trip to Rome, without any problems. Every game is going to be difficult and we are prepared. Today we showed that for 90 minutes”.
Great spell of form for Benzema “
I am happy and proud of everyone for what they did today. Karim and everyone. Things do not happen overnight. We are going to have difficulties until the end”.
“Danilo did not play because he had a pain and we do not want to take risks. There is nothing wrong with Carvajal, he ended up tired. We are not exactly sure about Marcelo. It is his shoulder, but we don’t know”.
Things to improve
“We are going to try and improve everything. At the back and in attack because we need to score more goals. We had a lot of chances today and we know that at this level we need to put them in order to be a bit more relaxed in our play. We have to improve everything and we are going to”.
