Real Madrid coach Zidane: I'm thrilled for the lads

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was delighted with their 1-0 win at Sevilla.

Vinicius Jr forced an own goal from Sevilla goalkeeper Bono.

Zidane said, “They're 3 hugely important points for us but beyond just the points, it's about our performance. From the first minute until the last. We had to dig in a bit in the second half but we were superb before the break, creating a load of chances. It's a deserved victory over a very good side who we know can cause you problems at any moment. We've come through it and I'm thrilled for the lads.

“We haven't changed because the team was fine and wanted to keep going as we are. It's important for the next game. It was crucial that we picked up points today and to perform well. We're going through a bit of a tough spell lately and we have to be happy. Now it's time to rest up well and think about what's to come."

Zidane added: “It's important. The recent days have been difficult and this team is full of character, it thrives on challenges and this win is hugely important for what is to come."
