For the third time in a row, Barcelona failed to win full points. That fact made senior midfielder Sergio Busquets begin to doubt his team’s chances of defending the Spanish La Liga title this season.
Barcelona plays 33rd Jornada at home, where they have to face a tough opponent, Atletico Madrid. Of course Messi et al need a victory in the match, considering they are still behind from the top of the standings.
But what was not expected instead happened, Barcelona only pocketed one point after the game ended with a 2-2 draw. In fact, this is the third draw that Barcelona won in a row on the La Liga stage.
Thus, Barcelona is still stuck in second place with one point distance from the top standings, Real Madrid. This distance can get bigger, if Real Madrid get the win over Getafe next Friday (03/07).
Indeed, there are actually five games left, mathematically there are still opportunities for Barcelona, but midfielder Sergio Busquets seems to be starting to be pessimistic.
“Look, fighting for the title is very complicated if you lose two points every two matches. But we will fight to the end, ”
“We know this is difficult, but we will try. They are difficult rivals. Kam dominated and made chances but two penalties punished us – it is very unfortunate, “Busquets told Movistar.
Penggawa Spanish National Team thinks that Barcelona appear less aggressive since La Liga was rolled out again.
“We came to the top and were in a perfect situation before the break. I think things have been difficult since then – in some games we have performed better, others have not, ”
“Losing points today and on the weekend means we are getting further away from the target, which is to defend the title. I think we played better today, but faced with a difficult task, “he concluded.
After that, Barcelona will face Villarreal in the 34th Jornada. Difficult for Quique Setien Forces because the party will take place at the opposing team’s headquarters. They certainly have to win if they still want to compete in the title race.
