The Real Madrid player seems pretty confident of his club’s chances in latest interview.

Real Madrid was one of the first sides in Spain to shut down their facilities when a member of their basketball team turned up positive for the coronavirus. But, much like everyone else, they are looking forward to the league getting back underway.

Partly because there exists a possibility that if the league were to be suspended or called off, Barcelona could be crowned as champions as they are two points up on Madrid.

According to Marca, Lucas Vazquez is very aware of that possibility which is why he wants the season to resume as soon possible and is confident that if and when it does, they are going to win LaLiga.

"“All the Madrid players are professionals. We are managing the quarantine in a good way, training a lot, and when we play, we are going to win LaLiga.”"

More from Real Madrid

While Real Madrid is in second place, they do have a better head-to-head after drawing at the Camp Nou and winning at the Santiago Bernabeu. The win at home put Madrid ahead of Barcelona but they blew that lead the following game.

They lost 2-1 to Real Betis at the Estadio Benito Villamarin thanks to a game-winning goal by former Barcelona product, Cristian Tello.

If there are any positives that have come out of the pandemic for Madrid is that the stoppage has given their players rest and a chance for injured players to potentially play a role down the stretch. Those players include the likes of Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio.

Vazquez’s wish is one step closer as, according to ESPN, Spanish clubs will be able to test players for the virus starting next week in an effort towards a return to football and “normalcy.”

That decision is likely to be met with some derision by the public who may feel that these tests should be reserved for people who need it more. Also, it’s unknown what could happen if players do test positive after a couple of training sessions or even after a game.

Prior to the stoppage, Madrid was going through an inconsistent season with the win against Barcelona one of their few bright spots. The same could be said for their rivals which is why Vazquez might feel confident about his team’s chances.

Madrid currently also find themselves in a hole in the Champions League against Manchester City. In any case, if the season does restart, their first match is at home against Eibar.
