Real Madrid boss, Santiago Solari, was left impressed by his side's performance in the 3-1 win at Atletico Madrid on Saturday and called the victory a collective achievement. 


The Los Blancos started the game on the front foot and took the game to their crosstown rivals. Following a stretch of Madrid dominance, they were compensated for their efforts in the 16th-minute when Casemiro's acrobatic effort put the visitors ahead.



Atletico responded through Antoine Griezmann's composed finish just nine minutes later, but Sergio Ramos' penalty just before the half-time whistle took the wind out of Atletico's sails. 



Real's dominance continued in the second half, and they finally put the game out of Atletico's reach through Gareth Bale's clinical strike — his 100th goal in all competitions since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2013 — in the 74th minute.


Solari was pleased with his side's display and called it a collective effort.


"It was a team victory, there's no other way to get anything from this stadium against a strong and competitive rival," Solari explained afterwards, as quoted by Marca.


"Playing as a team is the only way to win at the Wanda, we were strong in every aspect of play. It's the best we've played since December."



"The key is the players, we are all the team, those who train and those who put their body, heart and effort into it are them, they deserve the credit," he concluded.
