Barcelona star betrays uncharacteristic caution ahead of crunch clash

Posted by

Despite crushing Espanyol on Saturday, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has betrayed some caution ahead of the Catalan giants’ final fixture of the Liga BBVA season.

While goals from Lionel Messi, Rafinha, Neymar and Luis Suarez (two) helped Barca to a thumping 5-0 victory over their city rivals, the title race will go to the final day following Real Madrid’s victory over Valencia.

Atletico Madrid were taken out of the hunt for the championship after Levante came from behind to stun Diego Simeone’s side 2-1, Real picked up three points against Los Che, despite conceding twice in the second half.

Barca appear to be back to their best following a tricky time during April, having won their last four in the league.

However, Pique is taking nothing for granted ahead of the final-day bout against Granada—a match that Luis Enrique’s side must win in order to secure the title.

“It’s is one game,” the defender told Marca. “We’ll give everything in Grananda, but they’ll be motivated in front of their own fans.

“We’ll do our thing.”

Pique has already won five Spanish titles at the Nou Camp, and, at 29, is already one of the most decorated players in the history of La Liga.
