Real Madrid director of institutional relations Emilio Butragueno has heaped praise at the Galacticos and added that they deserved to win against Valencia.
The Los Blancos went down a goal in the 78th minute before Karim Benzema equalised with the last kick of the game to earn a point for his side. Speaking of the game, Butragueno stated that the team deserved to win while also ruing the fact that the Merengues failed to capitalise on the chances that they got in the game.
“We deserved to win the match,” Butragueno said, as per Marca.
“It looked like they were going to win and we could’ve scored from this corner, but we really deserved to win.

“It’s very difficult to have absolute control [at Mestalla], it’s a shame we didn’t make the most of our chances. They had two in the entire game. The team had the ball a lot, we had a good game and it’s very difficult here. We gave a good account of ourselves.”
Butragueno then went on to speak about the upcoming Clasico, stating that playing against the
Blaugrana is always exciting as he hopes that the Galacticos play well at the Camp Nou.
“It’s exciting, as always,” he said. “It’s normal that it motivates you. [We go there] with the hope of having a good game and knowing the opponent that we’re facing. We’re in good form and let’s hope it continues that way.”
