Players Courtois, Valverde and Ceballos spoke to the media after Real’s match against Barcelona at Camp Nou last night.
In the late match in the 26th round of La Liga last night, Real Madrid let the home team Barcelona beat back with a score of 2-1. In this match, Real soon took the lead after Araujo’s own goal (9′).
But mistakes in the defense system cost Los Blancos dearly when Sergi Roberto and Franck Kessie brought two goals for Barca to complete the comeback
With the loss at the Nou Camp, Real let Barca widen the gap to 12 points on the La Liga table this season. And when the season has only 12 rounds left, it will be difficult for Ancelotti’s teachers and students to compete for the title with their great rival.
When asked about this, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois also admitted that it would be difficult to surpass Barca in the remaining 12 rounds. The Belgian star said: “Real Madrid want to fight to the end. They will have to lose four games and we have to win them all. Nothing is impossible but it is really difficult.
We played a good game. Real Madrid took the lead and controlled the game well, but they scored against us in the last minute of the first half. After the break, we played well. Asensio’s disallowed goal is actually quite unfortunate. Then they scored the goal against us.”
Meanwhile, midfielder Valverde expressed sadness when losing to Barca: “I am very sad. We need to win and the whole team wants to win. In the first half Barca created more chances. Then they We were down in the second half and we should have settled the game with our chances, but Real didn’t take them and then conceded defeat.
Real have not given up in La Liga this season. The team has to fight until the end to finish the season in a good way and create excitement towards the Champions League.”
For his part, Ceballos said: “As long as we have points, we will fight to the end. We have to play well. Today’s match is completely different from the Copa del Rey match. The whole team has been braver. , we penetrated the opponent’s box more and Real deserved a better result.”
The race in La Liga this season is almost over after Real let Barca beat in round 26. With a difference of up to 12 points, it will almost be difficult to have a chance to come back when the Catalan team is playing. Currently playing very well in recent times.
