Real Madrid did just enough on Wednesday night to book a place in the final of this year’s UEFA Champions League as the Los Blancos defeated the English team Manchester City at the Bernabeu by a slander margin of 1-0.
Brazilian full back Marcelo believes that, although, the team has qualified for the final but that does not mean that they lose concentration on the La Liga. Real Madrid face a tough challenge in the shape of Valencia this weekend and they need to win in order to stay alive in the league and hope that Atletico and Barca falter if they are to lift the title.
“We cannot celebrate yet, as we have not won anything,” Marcelo told Premium Sport.
“Above all we must not relax, because we still have to think about La Liga.
“Claiming an 11th title is not an obsession, and now our thoughts must go to the championship.”
Real Madrid are currently place third on the La Liga table and are one point behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. There last two matches of the league are against Valencia, this weekend, and Deportivo on the 15th of May. The Whites will play the final of the UEFA Champions League on the 28th of May against City rivals Atletico Madrid at Milan.
