The Spain international has downplayed the importance of the upcoming Clasico, while adding that he prefers to play centre-back rather than on the right
The reigning champions currently sit sixth in the league table, trailing their arch-rivals by eight points, but Ramos believes that they have what it takes to get back in the title race in the remainder of the 2012-13 campaign.
"Even if we lose the Clasico, the league will not be decided just yet," Sergio Ramos was quoted as saying by AS.
"Obviously, 11 points would be a lot. However, there have been bigger gaps in the past that were still overturned.
"We have to focus on the Champions League [game versus Ajax] now. After that, there will be time to think about the game at Camp Nou."
The former Sevilla defender featured at right-back in Madrid's 5-1 win over Deportivo on Sunday, but he made it clear that he prefers to play at centre-back.
"I think I played on the right because the coach wanted to rest our right-back. I prefer the position of centre-back. I feel very comfortable in the centre of the pitch. It will not be a problem for me, though, if the coach wants to play me at right-back more often."
