Real Madrid midfielder Ceballos: We face Atletico Madrid at a good time

Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos says they’re looking forward to going to Atletico Madrid today.

Real go to the Metropolitano boasting a 100 per cent record this season.

Ceballos said: “We’re in very good form and come into it on the back of a good run in LaLiga and the Champions League. The game comes at a good time for us to face a great side and get as many wins as we can on the board before the international break.

“I imagine it’ll be a really competitive game. They’re a very strong and solid side. They don’t concede many. We have to focus on playing our game and we’re on a good run. We’ve got players who are making all the difference and that’s a bonus for us.

“It’s a special derby for the fans. It’s a game that’s earmarked when the fixtures are released and there’s great rivalry. Real Madrid should approach it as if it were just another game and we’ve got to go out for the win right from the off, just as we have done in previous games.

“The Real Madrid fans always get behind us, in the good times and the bad. We’ll be expecting you to be there for us tomorrow and to give us that encouragement that helps us to win games.”
