Benzema: Real Madrid can still catch Barcelona

Karim Benzema remains confident that Real Madrid has what it takes to catch Barcelona and retain its Primera Division title.

"We all believe that we can catch Barcelona. The title race is not over just yet," Benzema was quoted as saying by AS.

The reigning champions currently trail their arch-rivals by 11 points, but Benzema is optimistic about the Blancos' chances of retaining their title.

"The defeat against Betis was a blow and we were all a bit down after that defeat. However, the win over Atletico has raised our spirits again," Benzema said.

"We are back on track now and will do our utmost to win the league. We cannot afford to spill any more points, but we will fight for the title."

Madrid is currently preparing for the away match against Valladolid on Saturday.
