"I would obviously have liked it if had Madrid won the game and closed the gap on Barca a bit, but a draw was a fair result in my opinion," he told Al Jazeera.
"Both teams were on top of their game and put in a good performance, looking for a reward in the form of the full three points. Neither of the teams got the victory they were after, but it was a game to remember.
"The title race isn't over just yet. There are still many games to be played. It's true that Barcelona are in a better position, though, as they maintained their eight-point lead."
Madrid remain eight points behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga.
