Real Madrid winger Lucas Vasquez says having the BBC firing on all cylinders is key if Los Blancos are to overhaul Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid in the league.
Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo scored nine between them on Sunday afternoon as the 10-time Champions League winner ran riot against Rayo Vallecano, demolishing their neighbours 10-2.
And speaking to reporters, Vasquez said the rest of the players in the squad have their lives made easier when the front three are on form.
“It is really positive for us when the three players are doing well. It is a bonus and we really notice it. It is evident that when we have so much space in the opponent’s half we are lethal and we saw that today,” he stated.
Speaking about the events on Sunday – the first time a team had scored 10 in a top flight match in Spain in 55 years – the winger commented: “The game began a little crazily, and after the first sending off, we were more comfortable. We made the most of the rival’s opponents and in the end the three points are very well-deserved. Finishing like that before this little break gives us a lot of confidence. So many goals in a game allow us to go home very happy.”
