Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois accepts the LaLiga title race is over after defeat at Barcelona.
Real were 1-0 ahead before Barca stormed back via goals from Sergi Roberto and Franck Kessie.
With Barca now ahead by 12 points, Courtois said: “Yes, we have to be honest (the title is lost). We never give up, but there are already four games difference. Nothing is impossible, but the truth is that it is very difficult.
“We will have to come to win in the Copa.
“Today we played a good game. They had chances and so did we. You get ahead, control and tie at the last minute. That changes everything for you. Maybe not so many chances, but we had a lot of attacks in the second half and we didn’t take advantage of it. A pity the disallowed goal… and they scored against us.
“It’s a shame, but we mustn’t give up. There are two very nice months ahead. I’m sure we can come here to win in the Copa and we have the Champions League. We will continue.”
