Ramos: United Real Madrid peaking at right time

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos says the squad is coming together after a slow first-half of the season.

A trip to a Real Zaragoza side searching for a first win in any competition since January 9 provides an ideal opportunity for Madrid to maintain their momentum, and Ramos admits he is delighted with their upturn in fortunes.

"I think everything as a whole," the defender told realmadrid.com when asked what was behind the team's resurgence.

"What followed the poor start to the season was a more united group, more eager, enthusiastic and ambitious to keep improving and doing things right. And the results are there.

"Obviously we can't set off fireworks just yet because we haven't won anything.

"It's true that our hard work has already paid off with the Copa del Rey final, but there's still a long way to go.

"We have to put in the same work and concentration and finish the season with success and, above all by winning titles."
