Real Madrid winger Di Maria delighted with derby win

Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria was delighted with victory over Atletico Madrid.

Di Maria says the derby win sets them up for the second-leg of their Champions League semifinal with Borussia Dortmund.

"The league does not let up. We did everything right and the way we wanted, the coach put out the team that he thought would get the result. Winning this match is extra motivation and will help us to be at our best on Tuesday," said Di Maria.

He also explained the goal celebration: "I was hoping to score and dedicate it to my daughter and my wife and I managed to do so."
