Real Madrid "will fight for both titles" - Casemiro
Contending for LaLiga and the Champions League will be very difficult, says Casemiro - but the Real Madrid man is confident about Los Blancos' chances.
Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is bullish that Los Blancos can challenge for both the LaLiga and Champions League titles.
Reigning Spanish champions Madrid return to action on Saturday against Eibar in the league, where they are third, six points behind leaders Atlético Madrid with 10 games to play.
Los Blancos will be back in continental action in midweek against Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final too.
"Everyone knows what we are capable of"
"Everyone knows what we are capable of, that we can do it," Casemiro told TVE. "We are going to fight until the end. We know that it is very difficult, but we will fight for both titles.
"For Real Madrid all games are important. We are already used to playing the big games.
"We like to play these type of games. First, we have to think about Eibar and then about the Champions League and the Clásico [against Barcelona on 10 April]."
Casemiro: Champions League last-eight tie with Liverpool could be the final
The Brazil international acknowledged Madrid, who won a trio of Champions League titles from 2016 to 2018, have a difficult assignment against 2019 European champions Liverpool.
"It will be a very beautiful match and it will be decided on details," Casemiro said. "Whoever makes fewer mistakes will win. Liverpool have great players and this match could be a Champions League final.
"These are very nice games that all the players want to play. We have to give everything in all the games, not only against Barcelona.
"They are games that when you win, give you a lot of encouragement for the final stretch of the season."
