Isco's long-range strike in the 90th minute won the game, but it was his remarkable footwork and curled finish for his first goal that really caught the eye.
"There is no such thing as luck in football, it is down to hard work and effort in every game", continued the Frenchman.
They beat Sporting Gijon 3-2 on Saturday but conceded two sloppy goals, needing a 90th-minute victor from Isco to help them keep title rivals Barcelona at arm's length.

"I am at the best team in the world, there is no bigger team than Madrid and I feel fortunate", said Isco.
And yet Real's reserves gathered enough composure to equalise soon after once again, this time with Morata producing a good header at the far post to penetrate the home outfit's defence for the second time in the match.
Mikel Vesga's looping header put Sporting, who started the day five points adrift of safety, back in front at the start of the second half. "I want to stay a long time, many years, and I hope I do".
