"It was amazing. As a Madridista, and I’ve been here for 10 years, it was unforgettable. The arrival at the ground was something else. We’re thankful for the love and the support.
We’re used to the saves from Iker, if we have something it’s two great keepers. He has won us a title already and he appears at just the right time.
We worked hard all game. It was very tough, they like to set the rhythm and keep possession. We had a great game defensively. We came out to press and get the ball back, although we didn’t dominate. The 1-0 is satisfactory, it’s a good result to take to Munich. The statistics are there to be beaten. We’ve a squad, a team, humility and hope.”
