Sun 04 April 2021 | 10:08

Marco Asensio highlighted the importance and the quality of Real Madrid's 2-0 triumph against Eibar before the huge matches against Liverpool and Barcelona.

Los Blancos

managed to have 21 shots at Estadio Alfredo di Stefano but were shocked before the strike from Asensio just four minutes before half-time, with Eibar goalkeeper, Marko Dmitrovic in inspired form.

Dmitrovic ended the match with six saves but Karim Benzema guaranteed the win with a second-half header.

Asensio

 

is in good form, scoring in three back-to-back games for Madrid for the first time, and now is getting ready to perform in the important future matches.

Madrid

will face Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday and then host Barcelona next Saturday.

"I work for that [to score],"

Asensio explained to

Movistar

.

"In the end, it's about waiting for the moment and taking advantage of it.

"I'm happy for the goals, for the team, and now comes the most important moment of the season.

"There are unfortunately a lot of injuries this season, but I think we all have to contribute and that's why we're a team."

Currently, Madrid is standing second in La Liga, until Barcelona play against Real Valladolid on Monday.

"We knew we had to win to get good feelings and we took the three points, which is the most important thing."

Asensio added.

"We have played a good match, creating chances, and in the end we have won well.

"Now we face a very important week with the match against Liverpool and then Barca to come. We have to live up to it as the Madrid we are."
