Barcelona boss Quique Setien is clinging to the hope Real Madrid will falter to allow for a late twist in the title race.
Despite holding a narrow La Liga lead when the season resumed, Barcelona have slipped four points behind their great rivals with only four rounds of games remaining.
A coronation for Zinedine Zidane’s team appears inevitable, given they have won seven straight fixtures since the league’s suspension ended.
But Setien is refusing to wave the white flag, as he told a press conference on Tuesday:
“Of course we can still win La Liga. Mathematics says it. We have to keep hope until the final day.
“We have to look at what we can do. Win, leave good feelings, make progress. And if not in this situation, everything we do is worth it for the next one.”
