Lucas Vazquez says confidence can play a big part in the La Liga run in with four games to go and with Real Madrid winning eight in a row it is sky high around the Santiago Bernabeu right now.
Los Blancos beat Villarreal 3-0 last night to keep the gap at the top to just one point. Barcelona, the leaders, and Atletico de Madrid, in second, both picked up victories too as the league looks to go to the wire.
After a poor first half to the season, Zinedine Zidane’s men have responded brilliantly since the Frenchman took over and Real are right back in the hunt on two fronts.
Speaking after the game, goalscorer Vazquez said the mental aspect is just as important as the physical at this stage and confidence will be key.
“After eight consecutive wins the team is full of confidence, with desire to win and to go in to the final stages with things to play for. We have to keep working, game by game and we’ll see what happens. I’m happy with my contribution,” he commented.
And he added: “Barcelona are first, Atlético second and we are third. They are the favourites at the moment, it’s another thing whether they’ll win it or not. I’ve got a good relationship with Ramos and the goal celebration was a joke from the dressing room, a little greeting of ours.”
