We’re entering crucial period in season – Danilo


Real Madrid defender Danilo says the players know they are entering a key period in the season and must keep up their good form.

The 10-time Champions League winners defeated Athletic Bilbao 4-2 on Saturday afternoon to keep the pressure up on Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid in the League.

Los Blancos now switch their attention to European affairs now though as they take on Roma in the first leg of their last-16 clash with the Seria A outfit on Wednesday.

The games will start coming thick and fast now as Zinedine Zidane’s men look to end the season on a high after a poor first half of the campaign under Rafa Benitez.

And speaking to the media, Danilo said the players know now is a crucial part of the season and will determine whether they are successful or not at the end of the campaign.

“I’m happy with the result. We’ve worked hard and kept our concentration, that’s the important thing and the goals came. The coach was clear that Carvajal was going to play on the left. We try to do what the coach asks and win the game. We are working a lot during the week and now is the moment of truth in the season. We’re strong and ready to win. For us nothing is imposible and we’ll keep working with our eyes on the first place in La Liga,” the Brazilian commented.
