“In the last month, or month and a half, we have looked in great shape, and we showed our top form in this iconic stadium,” the 29-year-old was quoted by Goal.

“The first goal broke them. They lost enthusiasm. Then in the second half we were saving a little bit of energy for Saturday.”

Saturday is when Mandrid play Barcelona in El Clasico. The match could be Luis Suarez’s first competitive appearance for the Catalan club and Modric is prepared.

“I am ready for the Clasico, whatever the outcome is. Hopefully, we will win because it would mean a lot for our confidence,” the Croatia international continued.

Madrid are currently on an eight game winning streak and go in to the game in high spirits. However, Barca are also high in confidence, having not conceded a goal in La Liga yet with their new look defence.
