Iniesta: Don’t rule Madrid out

Andres Iniesta believes Barcelona have taken “a step forward” after their Clasico win but warns Real Madrid are still in the title race.

Barca thrashed Madrid on Saturday to move 14 points clear of their arch-rivals in La Liga, but while his side seem to have opened an insurmountable lead on Los Blancos, Iniesta made it clear “impossible things can happen” in football.

“We’ve taken a step forward in the League,” the midfielder said after the game.

“These are three points that widen the gap between ourselves, Madrid and also Atletico. However, beyond the table, the team must be congratulated.

"They weren’t ruled out before the game and it’s the same now. There are still many points to play for, and football has shown us that impossible things can happen. [The season] is a marathon.”
