Real Madrid The Brazilian was impressed by the assist
Real Madrid defeated Espanyol 1-0 on Sunday night thanks to a Casemiro goal that even the Brazilian believes was all about the assist.
It arrived courtesy of a sublime backheel pass from Karim Benzema.
“The goal is Karim‘s,” Casemiro said after the match.
“We’re used to the quality that he has and the quality with which he plays.
“I had to celebrate with him because the credit goes to him.
“We know his quality and that’s why I called for the ball – because I knew he could find me.”
Casemiro doesn’t expect Real Madrid to let up now they’ve got an outright lead at the top of the LaLiga Santander table.
“We’ll keep focusing on ourselves, game by game,” Casemiro said at full time.
“Espanyol are in the past now and we’re already thinking about Getafe.
“We want to win every game.
“There’s still a long way to go, but we know each match is like a cup final.
“We want to win this league.”
