Raphael Varane: Anything can happen still


Raphael Varane says Real Madrid need to be in position to take advantage of any slip ups by Barcelona or Atletico de Madrid as things can change very quickly in football.

Both Madrid clubs looked down and out of title contention a month ago but they are both fighting for the title once more with Barcelona.

Diego Simeone’s men are level with Los Cules, while Real Madrid stand just a point behind after beating Villarreal last night thanks to goals from Karim Benzema, Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric.

Giving his thoughts after the game, the French defender told journalists that the league can change very quickly and Real need to win their games to be in a position to take advantage.

“We’re thinking about our game. We have to win all of them, we’re in good form, physically and tactically very good, we’ve got to fight until the end. Anything could happen, we’re thinking about what we can do. We need to keep a cool head and play our football,” he commented.

The centre back added: “We can’t affect what happens in the other games. We’re on a good run, the team looks good and we’re all geared up for the end of the season. A lot of things have happened in a month and as a result of that we have to fight until the end. With the confidence and spirit that we’re got we can win titles.”
