Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has refused to give up on the LaLiga title despite losing ground to their rivals following a goalless draw at Getafe.

The draw saw Real lose ground to city rivals Atletico Madrid, who they now trail by three points in the table after they had earlier won 5-0 against Eibar.

Third-placed Barcelona are two points behind Real with a game in hand.

Zidane promised his side would give their all during his post-match press conference.

He said: “We’re going to keep on fighting, whatever happens, until the end of the season.

“We’re going to push the limit, the sky is the limit for this team. We feel good. The circumstances today were what they were and that’s it. We have to rest well and keep going.”

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made several important saves but admitted to disappointment with only picking up a point from the game.

He said: “It’s a point, and we didn’t concede, and that’s the positive side, but we are always disappointed not to win.

“We know that the fight for LaLiga is a tough one, that Atleti won. It’s not easy, with so many matches, and we have to keep on going.

“Playing at Getafe is never easy, the pitch was dry and it was hard to move the ball around.

“We tried, we had a couple of good chances, as they did, and that’s where I had good saves especially in the second half.”
