Real Madrid always focus on the league, warns Bielsa

goal :    Marcelo Bielsa has moved to dispel claims that Athletic Bilbao’s clash with Real Madrid will be easier than anticipated, insisting los Blancos have not lost all focus on La Liga.

Jose Mourinho’s side have all but surrendered their title after falling 13 points behind leaders Barcelona with eight games to go, but Bielsa has warned that his side cannot expect an easy ride on Sunday despite Madrid’s looming Champions League semi-final with Borussia Dortmund.

“I have always encountered a Madrid who have never forgone their commitments in the league,” Bielsa told a press conference.
