Atletico Madrid’s David Villa has called for calm in his side’s bid to wrap up the La Liga title.
The Rojiblancos suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat to Levante at the weekend, though draws for both Real Madrid and Barcelona meant neither of their rivals took maximum advantage of their slip-up.
Nevertheless, Barca’s 2-2 draw with Getafe took them to within three points of Atleti, who travel to the Nou Camp on the last day of the season for what could be a League decider.
“For us there are no surprises,” Villa told reporters today. “The only reality is that if we win the last two matches we are champions.
“I imagine that the thinking of Barcelona will be the same. Out of the three teams, we are the best placed because our destiny is in our own hands.
“We know it is very difficult to win a League championship. We knew it would be difficult right until the last minute, so our idea of working and just winning the next match has not changed. Nothing else matters.
“We need to win on Sunday and, depending on other results, set out to win at Camp Nou. That’s the only thought we have on our minds.”
