Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti vowed the club would fight until the bitter end for the Primera Division title after keeping up the heat on the top two with a 4-0 thrashing of Real Sociedad.

Madrid remained two points adrift of Barcelona and three behind leaders Atletico Madrid with a convincing win, crowned by two late goals.

"We played very well, intelligently," Ancelotti said. "We started at a very high pace and had more intensity in the second half. Everyone had a good game and I'm pleased because it wasn't easy.

"I'm very proud to manage this team. I have players who like to fight and we're going to fight until the last match."

Madrid were playing just three days after their 3-0 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Borussia Dortmund and Ancelotti was pleased with his team's recovery.

"It's not easy to recover well from Wednesday's match and the players had very good intensity levels in the second half," he said.

"They all worked well defensively. We avoided Real Sociedad's biggest quality, which is depth. We did very well at the back and we were very focused."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
