The France international is refusing to give up on the Liga title despite the Santiago Bernabeu side trailing their arch-rivals by 11 points

Karim Benzema remains confident that Real Madrid have what it takes to catch Barcelona and retain their Primera Division title.

The reigning champions currently trail their arch-rivals by 11 points, but Benzema is optimistic about the Blancos' chances of retaining their title.

"We all believe that we can catch Barcelona. The title race is not over just yet," Benzema was quoted as saying by AS.

"The defeat against Betis was a blow and we were all a bit down after that defeat. However, the win over Atletico has raised our spirits again.

"We are back on track now and will do our utmost to win the league. We cannot afford to spill any more points, but we will fight for the title."

Madrid are currently preparing for the away match against Valladolid on Saturday.
