We’re still in the hunt for La Liga – Daniel Carvajal

Daniel Carvajal

Real Madrid right back Daniel Carvajal says the team is still in the hunt for La Liga thanks to Luka Modric’s late goal against Granada.

Los Blancos won 2-1 in Andalucia on Sunday evening to close the gap on Barcelona to four points – although the Catalans still have a game in hand. After huffing and puffing for much of the game, it was the Croatian midfielder who came up with the goods in the 84th minute to seal the three points with a brilliant effort.

Talking to the media afterwards, Carvajal said the players know they should have closed out the game earlier on but were pleased to come away with the victory in the end.

“Modric’s goal allows us to stay in the hunt for La Liga and fight until the end. The goal we conceded was an unfortunate bit of play with the referee. We had chances to win. We missed the chance to make it 0-2, that would have made it a more relaxed game. We also take away positive conclusions and three points away from home, it is never easy to win on the road,” he stated.

Looking ahead to the challenges that lie in wait, he commented: “Until it is mathematically impossible, we are going to give everything. We are going to take it game by game, which is ultimately what will lead us to titles. First, we need to beat Athletic and then it will be the game against Roma.”


  1. In La liga every game is a final considering the intensity and passion. A win (1-2) from home is key especially in 2nd half of the season. What if Madrid lost? It was an away game for Madrid and Granada at the bottom of the table will naturally drive Granada crazy to gain points. Other teams win or loss 1-0 over low tier teams. So what is new? Three points? How many teams had scored late goals to win a match? It is 90 mins play. Goal(s) or no goals can come during this period. Modric is part of a team and scored for the team to take home max points. Who would have scored outside the team? Pele of Brazil?
    Sometimes games are difficult but the score line is important. Give the devil’s due. All is not lost.

  2. Tnkz goal from luca modric, and d one from kareem benzema, and he deserved to scored two to three goal bt he refused to convinced a goal. datz why barcelona fanz always saying dat MSN they are beta den BBC coz msn will pass to each other in order to why bbc cant.
