- Barcelona drew against Celta away.
- If Madrid win their match vs Espanyol, they'll lead with a two-point margin.
- 'We will try to keep on picking up points,' Setien has said in the post-match interview.
Barcelona are finding it hard to keep up with Real Madrid in the title race as they dropped points against Celta Vigo. Despite that, Quique Setien hopes the situation can be reversed.
"It's true we had a two-point lead and now, if (Madrid) win on Sunday, they will have a two-point advantage," Diario Sport quotes the head coach saying.
"We don't have as much room for error now and have to win all our games and hope our rivals slip up. We will try to keep on picking up points."
The coach still can't come up with the formula to improve Barcelona's away performances.
"I don't know what to tell you. I could say a thousand things but I don't think there's one thing [to point out]. We try to defend with the ball. Sometimes you can't attack because the opponents sit back. Sometimes you rush things. We play teams, like Celta today, with very good players.
"It's true that we would like to be more solid in many aspects. We're attacking, we try to win, to play in the opposition's half, and that's what can sometimes give the opposition chances, too."
Barcelona currently top La Liga with 69 points. However, Real Madrid have a game in hand and if they manage to beat Espanyol away, Los Blancos will return to the top spot with a two-point margin over us.
