Despite being eight points behind league leaders Real Madrid, Barcelona coach Xavi believes the club can still be Spanish champions at the end of the season.


FC Barcelona coach Xavi admitted on Friday that the battle for the Spanish league title was now ” very complicated “, but that his team would continue to fight ” as long as it’s mathematically possible “.


” We’re not throwing in the towel, but we know it’s going to be complicated,” said the Barcelona coach in a press conference ahead of Saturday’s La Liga match against Getafe.


“All we have left until the end of the season are the finals”.


Third-placed Barça, eight points behind arch-rivals Real Madrid (1st in the Championship) and two behind neighbors Girona, ” have no more room for error at home ” if they are to keep their hopes of retaining their crown alive. ” We had a very good reaction, but now we only have the finals left until the end of the season ,” said Xavi.


After a frustrating 1-1 draw in Naples on their return to the last 16 of the Champions League, a win on Saturday would give the Blaugrana club ” serenity ” and enable them to ” put the pressure on Girona and Madrid “, according to the Catalan coach.
