Cristiano Ronaldo defended Real Madrid’s slow start against Deportivo on Sunday, and insists that the team are ready to win at Barcelona, reports football-espana.com
Los Blancos head into next weekend’s Clasico at Camp Nou off the back of a 5-1 win against Depor.
Despite the result that saw Ronaldo net a hat-trick, he was taking questions on the slow start that saw the Galicians open the scoring.
- The truth is that we were apathetic in the game, but afterwards we came back well from being 1-0 down, the Portuguese told reporters.
- This was a very important win. We are fine, we know that we cannot drop further points. We know that Barcelona will be difficult.
- We have played strongly, but we have to stay focused and confident that we can win there, we will win.
