The new stumble in Barcelona places Real Madrid in a position to place itself at four points of advantage if he wins Getafe tomorrow, which not only allows him to depend on himself but also gives him the possibility of losing a game without suffering consequences. The sensations that Barcelona transmitted yesterday is that it will be difficult for them to reach the last league match having options to win the championship, especially considering that the Barca players have to visit Villarreal next Sunday one of the fittest teams. The Catalan team left signs of poor health and anxiety in the band with the decisions of Setién, who made the offensive changes with five minutes to go until the end of a game he needed to win, which he left in the bench for the second consecutive game to A ntoine Griezmann and that he has granted Arturo Vidal the role of fixed player in his eleven type.
No I feel completely disputed », Setien surprised as soon as the game ended. He assured that "I also feel backed by the wardrobe ". Two contentious assertions based on what has happened in the last four days. It should not be forgotten that Josep Maria Bartomeu had to visit him at his home last Monday at night to convey a message of encouragement after the fire incident in Balaídos, with the heavyweights questioning his tactical decisions and its substitutions. « I feel strong . There may be a lot of noise outside but inside we were convinced that we could make the most of it. We remain strong and eager ", he added.
Come to Madrid favorite
Anyway, the Cantabrian recognized the backward step taken in the fight for the title. "It's a shame. We have it increasingly complicated . Leaving these points supposes that we really move away from the possibility of the title. You have to keep working. Atlético is a good team, "he admitted after a draw that means the loss of six points in the last four games.
The squad aligned with Setien's speech, assuming the difficulty of winning a league led by Madrid with five days to go. " For the title fight, leaving two points is giving too much advantage . Until we can mathematically we will try, although we know it is difficult », explained Sergio Busquets who returned to the title after completing his sanction match against Celta. «He is a difficult rival. Both penalties have penalized us a lot. Live is complicated, each team expects the performance of the VAR in their favor. I have no idea how it has been. I cannot judge those actions. We have lost the points after the break. There has been a game that has been worse, but today we have given the face . We move a little further away from the lead if Madrid wins, but we have to continue our business, try to win, which is the main thing. But it seems difficult for Madrid to leave points because it is very good, "added the midfielder.
Riqui Puig was the great novelty in the Setien lineup and he starred in a good game. The youth squad, driven by his youth, was overly optimistic about his team's options to lift the league title. «We are playing with a lot of head and calm. Maybe we are more unemployed, but later we will get the games. The League is far from lost, we can still win it », he assured. Although he admitted that "losing two points, as also happened in Vigo and Seville, can condition us to win the League."
