Sergio Ramos is convinced Real Madrid will launch a title comeback in the second-half of the season.

The defender declared: "This break has been good for all the players to refresh and unwind. Now we must face the new year with great enthusiasm to pick up the points difference we have with the leaders.

"We are convinced we can achieve this."

Ramos added: "We will not be throwing in the towel. The Liga still remains the priority and our example we can point to is two years ago."
