Nacho: “We did these colours proud"
Real Madrid Official
Real Madrid came from behind against Elche in extra-time to clinch their place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals and Nacho, who played the full 120 minutes, reflected: “It's an incredible feat, especially to come from behind being a man down. It was a long, tough game and they defended really well. We're happy to be into the next round, which was our aim tonight".
“We did these colours proud tonight, we fought to the end, even in adversity of having ten men. The team gave it everything they had and I think we absolutely deserve to be in the next round".
Goals for Isco and Hazard “The whole squad is important. On days like today when we're up against it, some of the guys who have had less minutes really show up and clinch qualification for us”.
Lucas V.: "These kinds of wins really strengthen the team" “It was a really tough game, we knew Elche wouldn't make life easy for us. The team dug in brilliantly. We come away with a hugely important win in terms of making the next round but also from a morale point of view. These kinds of wins really strengthen the teams and we're thrilled to have gone through to the next stage”. “The team are thrilled. We put in a monumental effort in extra-time despite being a man and a goal down. The team showed all of our character”.
“The faith we have in each other was key tonight. If we do things right we can always get through these games and today is a prime example of that”.
Quarter-finals “We have no preference in the draw. We have to wait and see and show humility to make it through the rounds. We'll fight to the end to win this trophy”.
