Bale pledges to keep fighting to the end

Copa America 2019: Suarez, Cavani on target in Uruguay win

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale knows that if the club are to have any chance of winning the title they need to win both of their remaining league fixtures.

Los Blancos are third in the Primera Division table, one point behind Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. All three sides won on Saturday, with Gareth Bale heading in the only goal of the Real Madrid game in the 80th minute to give them a hard-fought win over Real Sociedad and the Wales international knows nothing short of two wins from their final two games will be enough to win the title.

"We know that if we win the league, we'll have to win every game left," he said. "They're all finals. La Liga is still possible and we'll keep fighting until the end of the season.

"[Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema] are two great forwards, but we have a great team and our good work achieved this good result.

Real Madrid conclude their domestic season with matches against Valencia and Deportivo, but before that they have the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Manchester City on Wednesday with everything to play for after the initial leg ended goalless.

"It'll be a very difficult game [against Manchester City], but we'll play that game with maximum intensity, as we did at Anoeta, and with the support of our fans, we hope to be in the Champions League final."
