MADRID (AFP) - After a slow start to the defence of their La Liga crown Real Madrid have clicked into gear and while they face a relentless Barcelona who continue to churn out victories, defender Sergio Ramos says they will keep chasing their arch-rivals to the end.

With Cristiano Ronaldo once again firing on all cylinders and the rest of the team having rediscovered their form, Madrid have won four of their last five league games with the only dropped points coming in a draw at the Camp Nou against Barcelona.

At the same time though that draw was the only game that Barca have failed to win all season.

"The challenge of catching Barcelona gives us motivation. We will keep fighting for this championship until the last game of the season and we will be in the reckoning," said Ramos.
