‘The league title is still there for us and we are ready for it. #HalaMadrid. ‘

Despite the return of talisman defender Ramos to the XI, Real looked defensively vulnerable and could have lost by a wider margin had Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante not been so riotous.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are currently second in LaLiga, level on points with Barcelona, with both teams two points behind leader Atletico Madrid.
Los Blancos have a tough end to the season, with their last four matches against Sevilla, Granada, Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal, all of which are ninth or above and have a chance to secure European football.
