Vitolo: Atleti still fighting for La Liga

Atletico Madrid winger Vitolo insists his side will not give up on a title pursuit despite an eight-point deficit to leaders Barcelona.

Los Rojiblancos lost 1-0 at the Camp Nou last week but still retain hope of a title chase with over two months remaining in the season after Sunday’s 3-0 win at home to Celta Vigo.

“As long as it remains possible, we will fight for the title,” Vitolo told reporters post-match, as cited by Marca.

“Barca have a significant advantage in terms of points, but there are still a lot of games left and we believe anything can happen.

“Right now, I feel good and trying to make the most of the opportunities that I am given but I feel comfortable in this team and happy to be playing my part.

“We played very well against Celta and the 3-0 win reflected our display.”
