The title fight in LaLiga Santander is still very much alive for Real Madrid, according to captain Sergio Ramos.
He led Los Blancos to a 3-1 derby win over Atletico on Saturday afternoon, scoring the second goal from the penalty spot.
With Real Madrid now having cut the gap on leaders Barcelona to five points, the centre-back believes that it keeps his side well and truly in the title picture.
"We fulfilled our objective to recover our position in the table and reduce the distance to the leaders and now we will wait to see how they do," he told BeIN Sports.
"It was very a complete performance from us and I think that the result is fair."I thought our performance was very intelligent and now the league is still to be fought for.
"There are many points up for grabs and any team can cause problems, as was seen in the first half of the season.
"We have hope and are going to fight for three competitions. "The league motivates us and we want to continue fighting for it and make life difficult for Barcelona.
"Ramos also shrugged off taking on the pressure of taking another important penalty kick, which took his tally from the spot for the campaign to eight goals from eight games.
"I am happy to assume that responsibility as it was important to score it," Ramos added."I hope there are many more and I can continue this run of scoring them."
