23 October, Kathmandu. Real Madrid’s Danny Carvajal says he was surprised to see Barcelona fall behind in the La Liga title race.
After playing 12 games this season, Barcelona is 10 points behind Real. Real is in second place with 27 points, while Barcelona is in ninth place with 17 points.
“As Carlo Ancelotti put it, we are surprised that Barcelona are so far behind in the title race, but no one can deprive them of any title,” Carvajal, 29, told Spanish online Marca.
He said that Barcelona should not be considered out of the title race. “When Zinedine Zidane came to the club, we were 12 points behind Barcelona and we were just one point behind, putting pressure on them until the last game.”
Carvajal has returned to the Spanish team after a long absence. He said that he was sad when he had to sit at home and watch the game as the team was out due to injury.
But now he is excited to wear the national team jersey, he said.
