Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique has come out to say that the La Liga title race is still on. He recently revealed that it is clear that the league is no longer guaranteed for anyone at the top as chasers have been closing in on Atletico Madrid.
According to him, wide gaps have been closed down in the past, so catching up to Atletico Madrid is not impossible in any way.
He added that despite the shameful losses to Sevilla and PSG, Barcelona has shown that they can still be a team to believe in this season.
His words, “There’s a title race, definitely,”
“We’ve seen much worse things and the team, despite those two games [against Sevilla and PSG], is one to believe in this year.”
“Sevilla, at home, didn’t have a shot on target nor created clear chances.”
“It’s not an ideal situation, but I’m confident in the team. Everything is in our head. If we turn it around on Wednesday [against Sevilla], the season changes completely.”
“We’d be in the final of the Copa, we’re still alive in La Liga”
On his knee injury, “They’re only little things,”
“We’ve spoken to the boss about building my match load bit by bit.”
“I’m playing more than I expected after so many months out injured. I’ve been able to train a bit and we’d agreed on a schedule.”
“I’m very happy to be able to keep participating and I feel proud of today’s game.”
