Real Madrid goalscorer Casemiro says momentum is with them after victory over Atletico Madrid.
After defeats to Alaves and Shakhtar Donetsk, Zinedine Zidane's side have gone on to beat Sevilla, Borussia Monchengladbach and Atletico Madrid in the space of a week.
"It's normal having a drop-off [in form] and then a pick-up," Casemiro said after Saturday's derby win.
"There are lots of games. We're not machines. We've been very solid as a team in three very important games for us. Everyone's work has been phenomenal."
The Brazilian opened the scoring against Atletico as Los Blancos dominated the game for most of the 90 minutes.
"We had control, we were playing good football," Casemiro recalled.
"Passes between the lines, playing high, pressing high. It wasn't just intensity in the first half - our football was fantastic."
