‘Barca are favourites’

Former Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid defender Miquel Soler has rated La Blaugrana as favourites to land the title.

Soler represented Barca over two spells with a season at Atletico sandwiched in between, and later stooped at Los Blancos towards the end of his career.

According to Marca, Soler told La Xarxa that he expects the League to remain in Catalonia, with home advantage a factor.

“Barca are favourites to win the League, although [Atletico] can do it with two draws,” Soler said.

“My heart is divided because the two teams who have given me everything in football are facing off.

“Atletico and Barca have games against clubs that are playing for a lot.”

Soler also questioned the winning mentality of the Barca players after years of success, arguing that it should be straightforward.

“I want to win the League, there is no doubt about that.”
