Courtois: Real Madrid title hope over

0 47

Thibaut Courtois says the Real Madrid chance of winning the La Liga this season has been jeopardized.

Real Madrid we’re defeated against last night after Barcelona came back from a goal down to claim all three points at Camp Nou.

Madrid went ahead early at Camp Nou thanks to Ronald Araujo’s own goal. Sergi Roberto equalised before half-time, and — as both teams pushed for a late winner — Marco Asensio had a goal disallowed for offside before Franck Kessie scored in added time.

The result means Barca are top of the table on 68 points and on course for their first league title since 2019, with Madrid trailing on 56 points with 12 games left to play.

“Yes, we have to be honest,” Courtois told Movistar, when asked if the title race was over. “We wanted to fight until the end, but now it’s four games’ difference… They’d have to lose four games, and we’d have to win all of them. Nothing is impossible, but it’s very difficult.”

Madrid’s will now shift their attention to the Copa del Rey — where they will return to Camp Nou to play Barca in their semifinal second leg on April 5 — and the Champions League, where they will face Chelsea in the quarterfinals next month.

“We’re sad, we’re hurting, but we’re proud of the game we played,” Ancelotti said. “If we play like that for the rest of the season, we’ll win something for sure.”
