The race to the title will come down to the wire with only 4 matches left and one point between Real Madrid (75) and the leaders Atletico and Barcelona (76). Each team did not fail to win during week 34. We hear from the coaches after the game:
Luis Enrique – FC Barcelona:
“We played a great game and were very effective, creating infinite options. It was a spectacular result for us. We didn’t concede any goals and won away from home. We moved down the wings really well, with Leo making his superiority tell, and we made sure we took our early chances. From there on, everything was on a roll.”
We have a wonderful challenge ahead of us” said the Asturian. “And that challenge is to retain the league title. But there are still four games to go and I’m sure it’s not going to be easy.”
Zinedine Zidane – Real Madrid:
“We keep doing things well, working hard. The team were phenomenal from the first minute to the last. We attacked well, created chances and retrieved a lot of balls. Defensively it was an almost perfect game”.
“I’m very happy with everyone’s attitude, with our team and satisfied with our players. It is great to have a squad like this to work with. We will keep playing against tough teams, but if we keep playing as we did tonight we will achieve great things. Obviously in every game we face tough moments, but I’m very satisfied with my team because I see them improving every day”.
“Nothing has changed, we are one point away from them. We will keep going with our ideas and our football. We will continue with what we have been doing recently, nothing has changed”.
Diego Simeone – Atletico Madrid
“The dressing room is happy. Exceeding the numbers of last season with four rounds to go is a very important step with the competition that we have with ourselves and our own requirement to continuously improve ourselves. To surpass the numbers of last year makes us happy. Regarding the match, we made a great effort. You cannot end up winning without the effort we have made, especially in the second half, where Athletic intensified the pressure more than in the first.”
