Espanyol manager Quique Sánchez Flores spoke to the press ahead of his team’s visit to the Bernabéu on Sunday evening.

Real Madrid have reached an ‘excellent balance’

Real Madrid’s play: “Madrid’s play doesn’t change. They stand out from the rest because they have reached an excellent balance. That makes things difficult.”

Playing in the Bernabéu: “I know how that stadium and that team works. I try to transmit that to our players, that they aren’t reckless, play with rigour, don’t fall asleep, keep their concentration… We can’t close our eyes for an instant. I hope we’re strong, dignified and that we have chances.”

Playing at the right time: “You have to try to arrive in your best moment, the moment in which the players believe it can be the moment. Everything is positive, they’re up for it, it’s a great opportunity. We see ourselves with the strength to go without tension and without pressure. We have more points than last season.”

‘Piqué’s tweet? I haven’t seen it. I’m ‘off’ social media’

Gerard Piqué’s tweet: “On social media I am ‘off’. I have no idea what happened. My head stays sane like this.”

Real Madrid’s results: “There are results that are to do with what develops on the pitch, and others that aren’t. […] We have various goals. The first is to win, the second is to draw, and the third is to lose with honour.”
