Real Madrid round-up: Mariano, Rodrygo, Figo, Champions League

Real Madrid round-up: Mariano, Rodrygo, Figo, Champions League

Raphael Varane said Real Madrid can not expect to win easily every week after Julen Lopetegui's side battled to a tight 1-0 victory against Espanyol .

Lopetegui rested Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Marcelo for the clash and Varane says winning can not come easy every week.

Villarreal earned a 3-3 draw at Real Sociedad thanks to Leo Suarez's equaliser in the final minute of stoppage time while Eibar edged Leganes 1-0.

It is very hard to come here and make Real Madrid look uneasy. "He wanted to go by subjects people and the most that has gone has been for that amount, we have not had many more offers".

"We have to focus on each different situation and make the best decisions, also depending on the opposition".

Roma have lost each of their last five away Champions League games, conceding 16 goals, their worst ever losing streak on their travels in the competition.

It was an intense game, it was a fantastic game by him, to be honest, so that's the best news and so now we know more about that. Whether that had any influence or not Firmino walked into Melwood on the morning of the match and told Klopp he was fit to play.

Former Real star Luis Figo was impressed with the side's showing in their dominant win over the Giallorossi, declaring: "They played really good stuff and, both individually and collectively, you have to be happy with their performance".

Perez said: "We will not go to the United States, I do not know who it interests, but it is not in the interests of the club and the fans. we refuse categorically".

"We lacked energy in the second half and lost control". "They played well, they're very well organised..."

In a midfield trio that is expected to see Kroos and Modric get a deserved rest, Casemiro is likely to play as the defensive midfielder. "I wasn't nervous at all, I wasn't in a hurry and I knew the day would come soon and I'm very happy with how it has gone", said Mariano, who scored 18 goals for Lyon in Ligue 1 last season after leaving Real in 2017.

"We can only take it game by game".
