‘A big step towards qualification’

Iker Casillas has admitted that Real Madrid have taken ‘a big step’ towards qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Los Blancos beat Juventus 2-1 this evening, to maintain their 100 per cent start to the competition.

“We have taken a big step here,” he told reporters. “Nine points out of three games is perfect.

“Now if we don’t lose, we’re into the next round.

“When they went down to 10 men maybe we were at a disadvantage because I think they took a few more precautions.

“Now we go to Camp Nou and have to win at Barcelona – it’s our duty.”
