With five games left and Real Madrid standing one point behind leaders Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo is sure that he will finish his first season in Spain with a championship medal.
The Portuguese forward, signed from Manchester United last summer, has been overshadowed in recent weeks by the sparkling form of Barca's Leo Messi, but he feels that it will be Real who will come out on top in the fight for the title.
The outlook is certainly rosier than it was a week ago for Real following their victory over Valencia and Barca's draw against local rivals Espanyol.
"We are in a much better position now and in football, with just one point the difference, it means that anything is possible," said Ronaldo.
"We have to fight until the end and all the players at Real Madrid must think that it is possible to win the league.
"I am confident that we will win our five remaining games and I am confident that we are going to win the league."
This weekend Real face a Real Zaragoza side who are fighting for their survival, just two points above the relegation zone after failing to win in their last three games.
"The motivation will be at a maximum to try and win this game. We know what the errors are that we have been making and we can correct them," said Zaragoza striker Javier Arizmendi.
