Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), March 27 (IANS) Las Palmas defender Alejandro Galvez said on Tuesday that his team had nothing to lose in its upcoming match against Real Madrid, insisting they would battle for a win despite the odds on paper being stacked against them.
He acknowledged that Madrid had powerful players in charge and could dominate matches, meaning the Canary Island team would have to be much more focused than usual to avoid errors in Saturday’s home tie, reports Efe.
“If it has a bad day, it’ll be in our favour, but if it doesn’t, the team is capable of scoring six goals,” he said at a press conference.
Throughout his time in La Liga, Galvez said he had seen all sorts of results against Madrid, including a victory when he played with Sporting Gijon.
Real Madrid are currently third in the league, behind traditional rivals FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, while Las Palmas are 18th and fighting to avoid relegation at the end of the season.
