"Today the players showed their quality - we saw some really lovely goals today".

Pressed as to whether he now saw himself likely to get the job permanently, Solari said he could only think about Saturday's La Liga game at Celta Vigo.

In temporary coach Santiago Solari's first Champions League game in charge Real began slowly but were out of sight before halftime after a clinical masterclass of finishing. I'm very happy but this was all about the players - we have some brilliant players here who have no limits. "I am only thinking of the next game".
