Real want to keep riding title wave: Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is hoping a combination of his and Real Madrid's impressive form can help maintain their quest of bringing silverware back to the Santiago Bernabeu despite a challenging pre-Christmas fixtures
Jose Mourinho's Real side are on a ten-game winning streak in all competitions which, in the Primera Liga, has given them a three-point cushion over arch rivals Barcelona, the European champions who are bidding for a fourth consecutive La Liga title.
Real's championship credentials should be tested during a tough run-up to Christmas, starting with a trip to Valencia today and including games against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
"It is good to be ahead of Barcelona, it's a big motivation for us," said Ronaldo. "I'm playing some of my best football and I want to continue like this. Maybe this is the best Madrid side that I have been in but the key is to win and if we don't do that then we are not the best," he added.
