Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain was delighted with his brace in victory over Real Mallorca.

Higuain went into the game under huge pressure over his form.

"Mallorca came here playing well. They went ahead twice, but the team showed the fighting spirit and style it has. In La Liga we are going to try and keep fighting to the very end," he said.

Regarding the competition up front with Karim Benzema, he stated: "It's for the good of the team. I am very happy because I scored, made an assist and Madrid won."
