Real Madrid’s manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted that they could still win the league, following their 2-0 win over Getafe on Tuesday night.
Karim Benzema and Mendy scored for Los Blancos in the second half of the match to ensure they got maximum points.
The result moved Zidane’s men to within five points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.
But Real have played two more fixtures than their rivals.
“Today we did this because we had to adapt to the situation with lots of absences. We interpreted the match very well and I’m happy for the players, because that’s not easy. We were really good, especially defensively.
“I don’t think there are Madridistas who think we can’t win the league. It’s the opposite, they always think we can change things, that’s what we’ll try to do.
“With difficulties of course, but we will keep going, believing in what we do. There’s a lot ahead of us,” Zidane said after the game.
