Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio happy to grab chance in victory over Rayo Vallecano

Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio was happy to grab his chance in victory over Rayo Vallecano.

Asensio aims to build on his performance on Saturday.

He said, “We put in a very decent performance. We conceded the goal towards the end which made life a bit more difficult but we closed the game out. We could have done it sooner but we created a lot of chances and we were sharp on the counter-attack. It was hugely important to win in front of our fans today. We're pleased with how we played, the win, and to be at the top again, which is where we belong. Now we've got a little break to rest and come back strong in two weeks' time".

“Every team can put pressure on and hurt you, but we're taking the three points, which is the key thing. People are keen to see good football matches and today was one of those, even if we struggled a bit at times. We know we have the fans' support, which will be crucial from here until the end of the season.

"You have to make the most of your chances, work hard and try to play as well as possible on the pitch. Hopefully I'll be able to get more minutes. The coach asked me to be very mobile and to get involved a lot in the build-up and on the counter-attack."
