Iago Aspas y Marcelo.

Marcelo faced the cameras after Real Madrid dropped points against Celta Vigo, meaning Barcelona extend their lead at the summit of LaLiga to 16 points. 

"We're doing what we can" 

How is the dressing room? "We're sad, we're trying to get things going, working to get out of the position we're in, which we don't like at all. It's difficult because the more matches you lose or draw, the more the pressure increases. We need to face up to this, run, and fight. We're sad, but in order to improve we have to give it our best to win." 

Marcelo: "We couldn't do anything more"

Things not going well: "We started the match running and fighting, but that's football. We can't do anything more. We're doing what we can, trying to play good football, score goals, but it's not working out for us. We have to face up to this, go out there and run. There's no other way." 

Zidane's comments that he doesn't want another 'keeper: "You know we think Zidane is an extraordinary coach. Our relationship with him is magnificent."
