With Cristiano Ronaldo once again firing on all cylinders and the rest of the team having rediscovered their form, Madrid have won four of their last five league games with the only dropped points coming in a draw at the Camp Nou against Barcelona.
At the same time though that draw was the only game that Barca have failed to win all season. “The challenge of catching Barcelona gives us motivation. We will keep fighting for this championship until the last game of the season and we will be in the reckoning,” said Ramos.
“There are two teams that are at the top at the moment, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, but our job is to win our games and put the pressure on them.” Madrid now take on Zaragoza having beaten Mallorca 5-0 with Ronaldo grabbing two which matched Barca’s 5-0 win over Rayo Vallecano where Lionel Messi also hit a brace and he continues the lead the way in the league with 13 goals. Barca now face Celta Vigo.
