Real Madrid midfielder Isco says the team won’t give up the chase in La Liga and will fight until the very end.
Los Blancos closed the gap on leaders Barcelona to just one point after defeating Getafe 5-1 on Saturday. Karim Benzema got two goals in the first half while Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Isco added the gloss in the second period.
It was Real’s seventh consecutive victory in La Liga and ends a good week for the team after their brilliant comeback against Wolfsburg in the Champions League.
Speaking to reporters after the game, Isco said: “It was a dangerous match. After the comeback and the great game against Wolfsburg we could have relaxed, but we haven’t done that. We went out fired up and got two goals in the first half and we’re pleased with today’s game. The team performed perfectly, we’re putting pressure on those above us in La Liga and we’re going to compete until the end. We are Real Madrid and we cannot give up.”
He added that team rotation is important while the players fight on two fronts.
“It’s important to have rotation within a team. The competitions are very long and it’s important to keep everyone switched on heading into the end of the season, because it’s difficult to win titles with only eleven players.”
