Diego Lopez: Win was key

Diego Lopez admitted that Sunday’s win over Getafe was ‘key’ for his Real Madrid side.

Los Blancos beat the Azulones 3-0 this afternoon thanks to goals from Jese, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric.

“It was key for us to win today,” he told AS. “I thought the team did a great job.

“Scoring after five minutes made things a lot easier for us.

“We defended very well as a team – as an entire 11 we did well in that department. Now we have to continue along that line ahead of the Elche game next week.”
