Real Madrid’s Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo was gunned down by the 2-0 defeat which his team suffered at the Santiago Bernabeu against Barcelona last Saturday. The Madrid forward told the media afterward that “It was a very important game” and that he hated losing.
Cristiano Ronaldo added:
“Barcelona have been more effective than us and have won the game. I thought the first team to score would win. They have set for our error and they have won. They were more relaxed while playing and have they netted the second goal [to kill the game].
“It is always said that it is better to win, that’s the reality. We lost and we must now lift our head and continue fighting for the league. There are 7 games left and we know that we can still win this League,” he concluded.
Real Madrid are 3 points off Barcelona in La Liga standings. They count 77 points with 7 other games remaining. They must not only win all of their upcoming matches to ensure La Liga trophy but also hope that Barcelona lose at least 5 points.
