Speaking to BeIN Sports after Real Madrid’s win over Inter tonight, French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga reacted to his assist for Rodrygo’s late winner.

The France international, who joined Los Merengues late on in the summer transfer window, notably pointed out that his run into the box had been a move he developed while at Rennes, his previous club.

“It wasn’t an easy match, we didn’t have many chances even though we conceded a lot of them. The most important thing is to have not conceded and to have won the match.”

“[Carlo Ancelotti] simply told me that there were a lot of spaces, that it would be a box-to-box game, and that I had to make the difference. [For the goal] it was a move that I learnt a Rennes. I was often told to make the pass and then run into the space in order to create the danger. That’s what I did with Fede, he set me up well and then I set up Rodrygo.”
