March 28, 2012
Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has said that the club should be extremely vigilant of dropping any more points in the league before their victory in clinching the title is confirmed. Real Madrid are chasing their first league title since their last victory in 2007-08 season. Only a few weeks ago, they were a massive 10 points ahead of rivals Barcelona. This led many to believe that Real Madrid had almost clinch the title.
However, the recent draw with Malaga has now meant that Barcelona have been able to reduce the deficit to 8 points. Iker Casillas‘s saves in the match against Malaga saved them a point. They recently brought down the deficit to 5 points after their win in the league, although Real Madrid have a game in hand against Villarreal.
Real Madrid will be hoping to re-establish their eight-point lead at the top of the table when they take on Villarreal during the midweek action. Speaking ahead of the match, Kaka said that it was extremely crucial that Real Madrid maintained their confidence and concentration going into the matches. Barcelona manager Guardiola recently said that it was Real Madrid’s title to lose this season. The mind game started showing its effect immediately after Real Madrid managed to drop two points against Malaga after a late equaliser from the latter.
“We have an advantage [over Barca] which means a lot and does not mean that much at the same time. We know that Barca are very strong and that they have great players, so we will have to be very alert until we have mathematically won the title. I am improving and trying to be at a good level again. Madrid are a new step in my career, I want to make history here and win a lot of things,” Kaka said in a recent interview given to Spanish paper AS.
