Real Madrid captain, Iker Casillas, says he would prefer sacrificing this year's La Liga title if it guaranteed he could lift his club's yearned for 'La Decima' - or tenth Champions League Cup.
Madrid currently trail Barcelona by eleven points in the Spanish league table.
The Madrid captain showed no hesitation when asked by Spanish TV station La Sexta to choose just one trophy to end the season.
"La Decima," Casillas said. "I do not have to think about it. If you told me now that we would finish 25 points behind Barcelona in La Liga that is obviously not ideal as the domestic competition is very important. But if you tell me that we are going to win La Decima, I would sign for that right now."
In La Liga, second-placed Atletico Madrid will travel to Barcelona next Sunday, meaning Madrid can close the gap on one or both of the top two by beating Espanyol at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu that evening.
Casillas also admitted it was difficult to know what result he preferred from the Camp Nou game, but plumped for an Atletico win to perhaps help Madrid make up ground on leaders Barca.
"Logically I would like that they both lose the game as they are ahead of us in the table, but that is not possible," he said. "Therefore, in my own interest, what would be best is that Barca loses points, as they are the leader."
Casillas was speaking before attending Monday's nights AS Sports Awards ceremony in Madrid, where the Spain captain was recognised along with his national coach Vicente del Bosque and Atletico Madrid centre-forward Radamel Falcao.
Madrid president Florentino Perez and Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, who represents Falcao as well as Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho, were also present at the gala event.
