Gracia: Playing Madrid is always tough

Javi Gracia knows that Osasuna will have to be ‘at their best’ if they are to beat Real Madrid on Saturday evening.

The Rojillos travel to Santiago Bernabeu tonight hoping to put a dent in Los Blancos’ title ambitions.

The Coach has admitted though, that his side face an uphill struggle against one of the best clubs sides in Europe.

“Nothing’s going to be easy,” he told a Press conference. “We have to be at our maximum to get anything.

“Playing a team like Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu is always tough. They are fighting for the League. We all understand it’s not going to be easy.

“But sometimes in football the underdog wins. If we’re at our best and they have a slight off day, who knows what could happen.

“Of course, it’s not an ideal game for us. But they have the Champions League to think about as well, so maybe they will have one eye on that.”
