Zinedine Zidane says Real Madrid can barely slip up this season if they are to end the campaign above old rivals Barcelona in La Liga.
Zidane's side will break the record for consecutive La Liga victories (17) with a win over Villarreal on Wednesday night, while Barcelona are also in action when they entertain Atletico Madrid.
Real have begun the campaign in superb form but Zidane says such is the strength of Barca that they must maintain their performance levels across the season to stay ahead of the Catalans.
"We need to win as many games as possible, even if we win another three or more consecutive games it may not be enough to win this league," he said.
"We haven't won anything with this winning run although the records are nice - we just need to keep focus on winning.
"We want to play, to train and to win - it's going to be a long season and there will be difficult moments but currently, things are going well."
