Real Madrid captain has called upon Real Madrid to improve their performances after they got lucky in their 2-1 victory over Real Betis.
Madrid went behind to a Keylor Navas own-goal before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised for Madrid and then Ramos popped up with another crucial goal in his resume of vital goals to win it for Los Blancos in the 81st minute.
After the victory, which helped Real Madrid overtake Barcelona in the La Liga table, Ramos stated:
“In football what is important is the result, but it is right that we have to improve our play a little more so that the fans can enjoy it. I am happy to score again, I dedicate it to my wife. It was a strange game, the team did some things well, Betis defended well and the few chances we had didn’t end in a goal, so we had to go on the counter. This is a tough stadium to play in, the level of expectation is huge. When the players make mistakes they need some care. Keylor saved us with a great save to deny a Betis equaliser and I was happy to see that he had recovered a little.”
This victory helps Real Madrid maintain their status as firm favourites to win the La Liga title, despite a visible dip in their performances levels in recent weeks.
