Real Madrid defender Nacho happy with 'clean sheet' for Atalanta win

Real Madrid defender Nacho was delighted with their clean sheet for victory at Champions League opponents Atalanta.

Real won the first-leg of the round of 16 tie 1-0 thanks to Ferland Mendy's winner.

Nacho said, "It was tough but we eventually got the goal.

"The objective is always to keep a clean sheet away from home, we're defending really well and even if they were down to ten, it's never easy.

"We've been able to score and also keep a clean sheet which means a lot. You need to give the boys all the credit with what we're going. We wanted to score more, to tell you the truth."
