Xabi Alonso tells Real Madrid fans: Barcelona can be caught

Former Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso believes LaLiga leaders Barcelona can still be caught.

With Real Madrid already 10 points behind the Catalans, it seems a tall order, but Alonso was convinced.

"There is a lot of the league left," he said. "And in a short time everything can change.

"You have to keep trusting Real Madrid because they are a very good team and Barcelona can lose points against them and Valencia."

The former midfielder also defended Cristiano Ronaldo and said he sees Real as favourites in the Champions League again.

"Cristiano Ronaldo will decisive in the big moments," he continued.

"I see him as always; with desire and enthusiasm to continue scoring goals and winning titles.

"Real Madrid were always the favourites because they've won the last two."
