Real Madrid fullback Alvaro Arbeloa is confident going into today's massive derby against Atletico Madrid.

A second successive loss would surely end all hopes of back-to-back league crowns and although many are already doubting Real's challenge, Arbeloa is convinced that his side can upset the odds.

"I think that if anyone's capable of turning a situation like this around, if anyone's capable of pulling together and fighting on, it's Real Madrid," the full-back told the club's official website.

"It's something that's in our DNA, in the DNA of this shirt, of this club, fighting to the end and achieving the impossible."
