Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has played down the significance of Saturday’s El Clasico clash between his side and Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
The Uruguayan insists that both Valencia and Atletico Madrid – who sit third and second respectively – are also involved in this season’s La Liga title race.
“There are more challengers for La Liga this season,” Suarez told Movistar after Sunday’s 4-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna, as quoted by Marca.
“Valencia and Atletico Madrid are both pushing hard this season and it will be an exciting title race.
“Of course a win at the Bernabeu would be a massive boost for us but this game will not be decisive.
“I’m happy with my own performance (against Deportivo) and also the team’s, it was an important three points and a strong showing.”
