Wales international Gareth Bale says Real Madrid can beat Barcelona on Saturday in the El Clasico if they give 100% at the Nou Camp.
The Catalan club are in pole position on the Spanish La Liga log with nine points clear of Atletico Madrid and 10 ahead of Real with just eight games left to play of the campaign.
They will be full of confidence having won the reserve fixture at the Nou Camp by a whopping 4-0 but the former Tottenham Hotspurs winger believes that the Los Blancos can mathematically still win the league this season and a win at enemy territory will help that cause.
“I think everything is possible in football. We’re 10 points behind, but we will keep fighting until it is impossible,” he told reporters.
“We have to score there. We know it will be difficult and we will have to be at 100%. You have to attack them and, if we play our best football, we will win.
“On Saturday we can get to within seven points of them and you never know what might happen next.”
Barcelona are currently on a Spanish-record run of 39 matches unbeaten while Real Madrid have won their last five matches.
