Barcelona forward Pedro says it would be unforgivable for his side to blow their unexpected second chance to win La Liga.
The Catalan giants’ bid to retain their title appeared to be all but over when they were held to a home draw by Getafe on Saturday.
Since then however, rivals Atletico Madrid lost 2-0 at Levante while Real Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw by Valladolid.
This has put Barca’s destiny back in their own hands and, with a final day Camp Nou meeting with the Rojiblancos on the horizon, they know they will be crowned champions if they can win their final two matches of the season.
“We have another chance and we cannot fail,” Pedro told the media today. “We are going to try to win against Elche so that we can then fight for the title in front of our own fans.
“He have had a great morale boost. It is now in our hands and it would be unforgivable not to take advantage.
“We never said it was impossible to win the League. It was unthinkable that these last results would happen.
“Now they have given us a second chance and we can’t throw it away.
“The League title depends our match with Elche firstly. We are going to a tough place to get a result.
“There is no point thinking about Atletico if we can’t beat Elche.
“I would say it’s is 50-50 for the title. Atletico Madrid have the points advantage, but we will be playing our final match at home.”
