After Real Madrid's 2-1 victory over Barcelona on Saturday, Sergio Ramos assured fans they will not give up on La Liga. The 26-year old defender scored a late winner for Real Madrid after he headed home a Luka Modric corner in the 82nd minute.
"Regarding the 13 point difference in La Liga, it is better than 16. The distance has been reduced somewhat and while they are not mathematically champions, we are obliged to fight," Ramos said to Canal Plus.
"We are pleased with the work we have done. With some different names in the starting XI, the ones who played showed they have a place. We were worthy of the three points."
Yesterday's match was full of controversy as the referee did not award a clear penalty for Barcelona in injury time. As a result Victor Valdes was shown a red card after complaining to ref. Ramos who appeared to have tackled Adriano in the box was unsure he made contact with the Brazillian defender.
"I do not know if there is contact [with Adriano]. I'd have to see it to comment, but it is also true that there have been others and I do not think it's the determining play in the game."
