- Story Text: Real Madrid are growing in confidence with each passing match, new manager Santiago Solari told journalists on Tuesday (November 6).
The Argentine took temporary charge when Julen Lopetegui was sacked and has put himself in the frame with two wins out of two.
He is hoping to make it a hat-trick of victories when Real take on Czech outfit Vikotria Plzen in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Defender Nacho also said the squad are feeling more upbeat, although he backed Lopetegui to come good in his next job.
Meanwhile Plzen boss Pavel Vrba said he was confident his side would spring a surprise.
