Karanka insists Real Madrid will fight until end

Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka says they will continue fighting until the end of the season.

Madrid showed no signs of giving up hope last night as they romped to a 6-2 win at Sevilla, Cristiano Ronaldo bagging four goals to move above Barca's Lionel Messi in the scoring charts.

Karanka said: "We will continue fighting and winning matches out of respect for everyone.

"This is the track we need to be on. Every match is different. Playing a Copa tie isn't the same as a league match or a final.

"Every referee is different and [last night's] was a pleasure to play with. He lets teams play, which makes for fun, uninterrupted matches to watch."

Of Ronaldo's contribution, Jose Mourinho's number two said: "Cristiano capitalised on his talent. Nothing concerning the Pichichi [the trophy awarded to the top goalscorer in La Liga] has been pre-arranged.

"The match just unfolded like it did. We scored six goals against Valencia and he didn't score any of them."
