‘Never count them out’ – Real Madrid can still win La Liga, says club legend Hierro


The Madrid derby will have huge implications for the title race in Spain and Los Blancos could particularly do with winning on Sunday

Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro has backed his former club to remain in the Liga title race until the very end as Los Blancos prepare to face cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid.

Diego Simeone’s side are five points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand but inconsistent form has allowed Zinedine Zidane’s side back into the hunt in recent weeks.

Atleti have won only two of their last six matches in all competitions and Hierro, who won five league titles and played over 500 games for Real Madrid, believes that the battle for La Liga will go right to the wire.
