"We return home with three points taken against one of the best teams in the world," he told the club's official website.
"We believe we deserved to win. Our latest clashes showed the difference between both sides was minimal.
"Nothing strange happened tonight. There were no dubious efforts or challenges, and that's good for football. Madridistas had fun with their team tonight."
