Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain claims the weekend results in La Liga have shown that his side are favourites to win the title.
Real were 2-0 winners over city rivals Getafe while reigning champions and bitter rivals Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw by Osasuna.
"It was tough week, because we had to listen to the meaningless criticisms," explained Higuain, who scored both goals at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"Today we showed that we will fight for the league. It is in our hands.
"We have the team to win."
Real remain one point adrift of Barcelona at the top of the table.
