Nacho hails 'defensive job' against 10-man Atalanta

Published on: 25 February 2021

Nacho maintains Real Madrid ‘did a very good defensive job’ against an Atalanta side down to 10 men for 73 minutes.

The Spaniards snatched a last-gasp victory through Ferland Mendy’s long-range strike in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

“We only managed to score one goal, it’s true,” Nacho said in quotes carried by Football-Espana.net.

“But we have to attribute a lot of value to what the team have done. We’ve re-engaged in La Liga, we’ve won here. We’re making an effort.”

The match was transformed when Remo Freuler was controversially shown a straight red card after 17 minutes for what seemed at best a yellow card offence.

“The objective of these games is to leave with a clean sheet, and we did a very good defensive job,” continued Nacho.

“It’s true that the rival was one less [down to ten men], but it wasn’t easy. If we can keep a clean sheet the goals usually arrive.”
