Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, has insisted they are better than Atletico Madrid, despite getting hammered in their derby on Saturday.
Tiago, Saul, Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic scored for Diego Simeone’s team, as they recorded a famous 4-0 win over their city rivals.
“Real Madrid are better than Atletico but we have to prove it on the field,” the Portuguese told reporters. “Anyway, I think we will win the Liga title at the end of the season.
“Nothing worked today. It is a day to forget. Real Madrid can never lose 4-0 against any team.
“We lacked enthusiasm and we were not mentally or physically fresh. There was little recovery time from Wednesday’s game [against Sevilla].”
Atletico are now four points behind Real in La Liga.
