“Everything is key from here. Every game is important. We are in positive form. The team is playing well and we are getting victories and if we keep on this path we will be fighting until the end,” said Vazquez after the game.

Real Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw in their last outing at Elche. They go to Osasuna next weekend.
