Real Madrid got the victory for the first time at Signal Iduna Park at Dortmund, so the players and the coach were very happy. Zidane spoke in press conference about this important achievement: “This is not one game more. We’ve never won here before. Yesterday we spoke that this is a rival that put you in difficulties at any time. We did a great game. It’s a victory where we never won before”.
One of the best players of the game was Gareth Bale: “I hope there are more turning points. We found Gareth in a great shape. The important thing is to score. I’m happy for him and for Cristiano. We have many chances. Finally we found a great game in a very tough venue. We never won here it’s an important result because it’s a very difficult stadium. Bale doesn’t have anything important, it’s only calf pain”.
Real Madrid changed their performance when they play the Champions League: “I don’t know what we have with this tournament. When you play like this you can think it’s the tournament, but we also did it last season in La Liga. On Sunday we’ll try to do the same at home. But of course the Champions League is special”, Zidane commented.
This time, Zidane cannot complain about anything: “It was a perfect game from the start until the end. Especially, how we started, playing very well football. The first half was amazing, the second also. We can be very happy after an effort like this. Playing with authority was the key”, the coach analyzed.
Toni Kroos and Luka Modric were also key to win the game: “We understood the game in the midfield very well. They key was stealing the ball to Borussia and we did it in the best way. The first half was amazing, in position and in the pressure. It was they key”.
