After keeping a 0-0 draw in Seville on Friday night, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique appeared to surrender trust that his side will retain the LaLiga title this season.
Two crucial points in the title race were dropped by Lionel Messi and Co, allowing rivals Real Madrid to overtake them at the top when they take on Real Sociedad Sunday.
Speaking after the game, Pique was negative about the chances of winning a third consecutive residential title in Barcelona.
He said, “The draw leaves us in a position where we are not, at this point subject to ourselves and it’s hard to imagine that Real Madrid will drop points when taking a gander at the fixtures however we’ll despite everything offer everything to attempt to win.”
Real Barca trail by three and in the event that they beat Real Sociedad on Sunday, because of their boss head-to-head record, they will overtake the Catalans at the top of the standings.
Zinedine Zidane’s side beat Valencia 3-0 with a wonderful second-half display on Thursday and won 3-1 against Eibar back in their first game and the extra time off allowed Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio to return from injury.
On their arrival, Barca had beaten Real Mallorca and defeated Leganes 2-0, despite the fact that they sometimes glanced lazily in the two matches.
Arouse said they had the right to beat Seville in the third position, and reviled that they couldn’t win.
“It was a serious game and we didn’t play badly yet it feels like we dropped two points because we had a bigger number of chances than them and they looked drained towards the end. In any case, they’re third in the table, they ‘re a decent team so we shouldn’t be stunned it’s been hard,” he added
Barca coach Quique Setien said he was confident that Real would also fail and said that in the heat existing apart from everything else, Pique had made his downbeat forecast.
