Real Madrid At Barcelona, La Liga 2012 Post-Clásico Reactions

Just after Real Madrid defeated Barcelona in what was arguably the team's most important win of the season, neither the players nor Mourinho wanted to show their excitement. The whole staff was very cautious, saying that there are still four games to be played in order for la Liga title to go to the Santiago Bernabéu's coffers.

Now we have to be humbler than ever. I wouldn't call this a revenge, but this win surely tastes like glory.

--Sergio Ramos

Ramos was one of Madrid's best players during El Clásico. Mourinho didn't even want to speak to the Spanish press following the victory, so Karanka was in charge during the post-match press conference.

We won when not many people believed in this team. The league is not sentenced yet, we need to keep working this way. We need to comeback on Wednesday and I know how the Bernabéu is when it matters.

Xabi Alonso and other players think Real Madrid got control of the game during the whole 90 minutes.

It's a big step forward, but we got to close it down. We have controlled the game perfectly, and Cristiano's goal came in the best moment, just after their goal.

Esteban Granero wanted to remind everyone how well Real Madrid played the last two times the team visited the Camp Nou.

This is not the first time we've played better here, but this time we won. We had solidarity and played a very complete game. Now we have a little disadvantage against Bayern, but with our crowd pushing, I think we can comeback.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored Real Madrid's key goal in the victory. But the Portuguese player thought the win was more important than his goal.

I'm very happy. I've scored in my last three visits here, but the team is the important factor here. I congratulate my teammates. We will advance to the Champions League Final playing all together.
