Real Madrid loanee Mayoral promises that Levante will 'fight' against Barca
- Having alreagy won agaist Real Madrid this season, Mayoral hoping to help his team to another 'upset', this time against Barca
- Mayoral admits thst despite being a Madridista his main motivation against Barcelona is showing the team and his own potential vs a great team
Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral is on loan at seven-placed Levante, who have already defeated Los Blancos this season and now prepare to host Barcelona for a Sunday clash.
Mayoral reckons that the chances are high that his team can 'upset' the Catalan Giants too:
"Levante competes against everyone, against the big teams and not so big," Borja said in the interview with MARCA. "This league is very close. Barcelona are special, because they're the leader. But we are doing things well and I think we have to go for it."
On being just two points behind Real Madrid in the table:
"I didn't expect it. You think that Madrid are going to be higher than they are, but we are also deserving of being there."
On if the motivation is higher for Mayoral against Barcelona, him being a Real Madrid player:
"Yes, but it is not what motivates the most. I'm a Madridista, but above all what I want is to see how we face the big teams. It is one more game, we have to focus on continuing to work hard to face it.
"I hope we have a season full of successes. Both individually and collectively. I want us to achieve the objectives as soon as possible in order to dream of a historic season. I want this to be a historic season for me and for Levante."
Blaugrana take on Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Sunday at 8:45 p.m. CEST.
