Zinedine Zidane was a happy man after Real Madrid got all 3 points from their match against Celta Vigo.
“We know what the schedule is like and we know there are lots of games to come,” Zidane said.
“But the players are fine.
“Yes, two of the [midfielders] are leaving [for international duty] and it’s not ideal.
“Now, we have to enjoy this win.
“I don’t think the end of the season is going to be complicated – the opposite.
“We have to keep going. We’ve been playing well lately.
“We’re in the final stretch where everything is in play.
“We’re doing well physically, we’re in great form.
“We suffered a bit in the second half [against Celta], but we interpreted the game well.”
His thoughts were echoed by Real Madrid defender Nacho who felt everything was coming together.
Nacho said, “This is definitely our best spell of the season. We’ve put together a long run of good wins and draws.
We go into the final stretch full of confidence, but that’s football. You have to keep working hard.
The important thing is that we go into the international break with another win.
“The team is in great shape. We’ve won some really important games, like the one today.
“As we always say, we have to take each game at a time and work hard every day.”
