Iker Casillas: We can still overcome Barcelona and win La Liga
Los Blancos defeated Athletic Bilbao 3-0 at San Mames on Saturday evening but Barca’s 3-1 victory over Almeria at Camp Nou means that going into next week’s Clasico fixture, the gap remains eight points at the summit.
However, Casillas is confident of continuing to challenge Barcelona until the end of the season. And he told Madrid’s official website: "We are going to continue to think about winning and earn points so that no one believes this league is over.
"It will be hard to win, but you never know what can happen. One play or mistake can change everything. The Champions League [match against Tottenham Hotspur] comes before the Clasico. It appears that we will go through, but anything can happen. Let's talk about Barca after the match in London."
Reflecting on Madrid’s victory in Bilbao, the Spain international added: "A long time has passed since I debuted here. Time has flown by, but playing here is always special.
“After the Bernabeu, this is the most special stadium with a unique fan base. The pressure that always exists while playing here helped us stay focused from the first whistle."
