Real Madrid's participation in this season's Champions League came to an end after crashing out in the semi-finals against Chelsea. Both Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos looked to lift the mood of the Madrid fanbase on Twitter. Both started in the match against the 'Blues' and the Spaniard alluded to the history of the club in order to lift themselves to fight for La Liga.
"We're disappointed, yes. But we're not finished. A history built on victories but Real Madrid has always risen from defeats. The league title is still there for us and we're up for it. #HalaMadrid" the CB wrote. "¡Hala Madrid! Always" wrote the German instead. Both received messages of support from their followers, although a few 'Blues' fans took advantage to make jokes.
In any case, the objective set by the captain remains - to not give up in what remains of the league competition. Atletico, leader with 76 points, and Barcelona, third place with 74, play each other this weekend. This could provide Real Madrid with the perfect scenaio to take advantage of the result and move into top spot.
Their remaining four games see them face Sevilla, Granada, Athletic and Villarreal - four of the most attractive teams in the league. While it is true that Sevilla have fallen out of the race for the La Liga title and Granada for the Europa League spots, it is worth remembering that Athletic are champions of the Spanish Supercup and Villarreal are Spain's last remaining team in Europe.
