“Madrid Will Continue Fighting”

Real Madrid’s defeat in El Clasico on Saturday, in which Dani Carvajal was sent off, put them 14 points behind leaders Barcelona but the defender is not prepared to admit defeat just yet.

Carvajal was not involved after a deliberate handball gave Barcelona a penalty to make it 2-0, and yet insisted that after suspension he will be back fighting to try to recoup that lost ground.

“The team will give everything, we will fight until the maths says it is impossible,” Carvajal said on Christmas Eve at an event for the Call of Duty video game.

“We are 14 points behind, but we will take it as we always do, going out to win, although we will have a bit more pressure and not a lot of margin for error.”
