Villarreal coach Unai Emery: We neutralized Real Madrid

Villarreal coach Unai Emery was happy with their 0-0 draw at Real Madrid.

Emery says they matched Real Madrid on the day.

He said, “We neutralized Real Madrid by playing with personality and demonstrating our idea of how to play. It is true that we lacked a little bit of cutting edge to be able to win the game, but we're on the right path. We're demanding of ourselves, we wanted to come away with the three point, but we can take a positive evaluation out of the team's work tonight."

For the Yellows manager, the point underlines the good feelings around the team at the moment.

“Draws don't give you many points. We want to be in the European spots, be more consistent in how we are playing, and continue on the path we are on to be confident to win. This is a match that strengthens us and once more shows that we are capable of competing against the best teams in the world. Despite that, we need to continue to improve.

"In a game that we prepared for in so much details, we need to be capable of finding goalscoring opportunities, and then taking them to be able to win the match."
