La Liga week 23
Real Madrid sit now at the second place of La Liga behind FC Barcelona. They took won against their city rivals Atlético Madrid 3-1 at the home of Atlético and took their opponents spots.
This is the kind of Real Madrid fans have known for years and the team is playing some of its best football of the season. Before facing Ajax next in the Champions League, Real Madrid once again come as favorites.
Coach Solari on a great team performance at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium:
“It was a team win and there’s no other way to get something here against a solid and competitive side, particularly when they’re playing at home. We were strong in every facet of the game. It’s probably our best performance since December”.
It was a very complete display and that’s the only way we were going to take anything here against a team who are better every year. They’re a great side with a fantastic coach, we head home very happy. We were good at the back, up top, we pressed brilliantly and were solid on set-pieces, both offensively and defensively.
“We’re all part of the team and the key thing is the players, who are the ones who train, show the physical commitment and heart in every game. The players deserve 95% of the credit for the win. The remaining bit is down to the rest of us – the medical team, directors, fans… Real Madrid always fight to the end and we have to keep going. We have to keep our feet on the ground and continue working hard”.
