Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio has called on his side to remain ‘united’ as they enter their most important time in their season.

Santiago Solari’s side start a crucial run of matches with an El Clasico double against Barcelona, beginning with the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final.

“This is a very important time of the season for us,” Asensio told Codere, as cited by Marca.

“We have to start winning crucial matches in all the competitions we are in, it counts now than at any other point in the season.

“Now is the time for us to remain united and to move in the same directions, to ensure we win trophies as we have been doing in recent years.

“Against Barcelona we must start very well, and we know that being at home our fans will be fantastic and push us towards the result we want.

“I have won every trophy with Madrid apart from the Copa so I am very excited.”
