Raul Albiol: Beating Valencia was vital for Real Madrid

Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol was pleased with victory over Valencia.

Albiol admits the lead-up had been difficult following their trouncing at Barcelona.

He said: "It has been difficult. It is not easy, the team has been screwed but we have proven in this game that we have character.

"It was very important to get the points to stay very close in the standings. With an early goal, things would have been easier for us and the fans I personally am very happy to have played. I feel happy."
