➤ To read: match notes

The game : “It was a complicated match, we controlled it better in the second half. We improved everywhere: in pressing, in passing … This match was not spectacular, but we succeeded the clean sheet and that was important. We didn’t put in the necessary defensive intensity in the first half and that’s what pissed me off. The changes are there to bring new blood and that has been successful for us in second. I’m happy with the start of the season but we have to play more aggressively. “

Benzema : “Everyone was at the same level in the first and Karim suffered because we weren’t able to get him to touch the ball. But in the second, yes, and he was decisive with a very nice pass. As always. . “

The South Americans and the truce : “It’s a little weird. They’ll be back on Saturday morning so they won’t be able to play against Celta Vigo. We hope we can sort this out, for the good of everyone and not just Real Madrid.”

What position does he prefer to see Alaba play? : “In central defense”

Vinicius : “He’s on a good streak, he had a great game. He could start, just like Hazard.”
