Real Madrid goalkeeper Courtois: This team knows how to fight and we did that today

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was proud of victory over Barcelona.

Real's win sees them go top of the LaLiga table.

Courtois later said: "We had to dig in during the second half and we found it very tough but we held on, kept going and we did a good job.

"This team knows how to fight and we did just that today. We dug in and defended well as a unit.

"We did concede a few chances but I managed to stop them well. When the rain is coming down like that and you're soaked, your hands and your arms are freezing, but in the end when you're playing a match, the adrenaline is pumping and you focus and forget it."
