FC Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets refuses to give up on the title in La Liga, despite damaging 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid. Barcelona now trail their arch rivals Real Madrid on one point, knowing they could increase their lead to four points with a midweek victory over Getafe.
Barcelona conceded two penalties from Saul Niguez for Atletico to secure a point at the Nou Camp. The draw is Quique Setien’s side third draw since the return of La Liga in June. Despite losing ground on Real Madrid, Busquets refuses to give on their title dreams. “It will be difficult to fight for the title. We have given away too much of an advantage,” he reporters from Marca at full time.
“It looks unlikely Madrid will drop points, because they look good”, he said. “We will move further away from the top of the table if Madrid win, but we must keeping trying to win games, and keep going until it is mathematically impossible to win.” Barcelona will play Villarreal next before they host Espanyol.
