La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 20/01/2019

Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari has sent a warning to rivals after the 2-0 victory against Sevilla in the La Liga as he insisted that his team still have a chance to clinch the La Liga title.

Real Madrid has recorded two big wins against Real Betis and Sevilla in the La Liga following their injury worries and the victories in those games serves a morale boost for the team.

"We're going to fight for all three competitions until the end," Solari said in his post-match press conference.

"Nothing is impossible for Real Madrid."The three points are always worth more when they come against a direct rival.

"The opening goal came via a long-range Casemiro strike and the Argentine explained that getting lots of shots off was part of their plan.

"We knew that we'd have to find space somehow, as they had been defending well," he said."There was a clear chance for Vinicius in the first half.

"Then we insisted and insisted until one went in."There was also specific praise for Luka Modric, who was excellent and who scored."He was outstanding, even with a cut on his head," the coach said."He is a fighter.

"He was on the medical table during the 15 minutes at half time and then went out and had an excellent second half, also scoring a goal in the final minute.

"This says something about his spirit and the team's spirit."There was also a question about Isco, who came on in the second half.

"I am very happy for Isco and for all the players," he said."We deserved to win and everyone has to play well for this to happen, both those who started and those who came on."

Real Madrid will now focus on their clash against Girona in the Copa Del Rey on Thursday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
