Paco Jemez feels it will be hard for either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid to catch Barcelona, but ‘anything can happen in football.’
Jemez, speaking to preview Rayo Vallecano’s game at Real Betis, was asked about Saturday’s Madrid derby and the impact it can have on the title race.
“La Liga is complicated. I don’t like the word impossible, but objectively I don’t see Barca losing their advantage, or Madrid or Atletico winning it,” he said, AS reports.
“Can it happen? Anything can happen in football. I didn’t speak of inability, only difficulty.
“A draw is better for Atletico because they understand they’re playing for something else. The pressure is Madrid, who need to win to catch Barca.”
