Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola has highlighted the difficult conditions during his side’s 1-0 win at Huesca on Sunday.
Madrid boss Santiago Solari blamed the windy conditions for his side’s performance, with full-back Odriozola – a summer arrival from Real Sociedad – in agreement.
“The conditions made it very difficult for both teams,” Odriozola told reporters, as cited by Marca.
“It’s not an excuse but it may help explain the game, it was tricky to get into a rhythm and we did not know where the ball would go a lot of the time.
“This makes the three points even more important, along with the clean sheet and the fighting attitude – there is a lot to be happy about.
“Gareth Bale’s goal? Playing with this quality makes it a lot easier, because in this league anyone can beat anyone but those players make the difference.”
