"Now we have to focus on the Champions League, enjoy the victory, and continue to fight for la Liga," he is quoted as saying on Madrid's official website. "We have to continue on this path and narrow the gap.
"This weekend's work is already done. We are very confident and La Liga is very long and as long as no one is mathematically the champion, which won't be for a while, Real Madrid will be there."
Madrid will take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.
