Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta believes the champions can still retain the title this season.
Atletico Madrid are four points clear at the top of the table, with three games to go – the last of which sees Diego Simeone’s side travel to Camp Nou.
Barca beat Villarreal 3-2 on Sunday to stay in the race on an emotional day as La Blaugrana took to the field for the first time since the death of former Coach Tito Vilanova, who had been suffering from throat cancer.
“Yes we can win the League, or at least we have the desire and the belief to win the League,” AS reports Zubi as saying post-match.
“After such a difficult week we owed victory to Tito. We are hurting, although much less than the family, who are the most important part in these cases.
“Both personally and professionally Tito has given us an example of how to handle this disease.”
