Casemiro says Real Madrid proved their unity after their Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
The midfielder was recalled after being benched for the El Clasico thrashing by Barcelona.
“I'm very happy with the win. We were amazing for 75 minutes; we played really well; we pressed and scored goals. They nearly turned things around at the end, we need to be more careful in future. The opposition need to be taken seriously, this is a tough ground. Shakhtar are a tricky opponent but I'm pleased with our performance during the first 75 minutes, it was incredible. We need to keep playing like that.
“The defeat to Barcelona is in the past, we need to look ahead to the future now. We have a difficult away match coming up now. I'm here to do what Benítez tells me, he's a great manager. We're standing by him, the president, the fans and Real Madrid. By standing together we're certain to win."
