His words would be perfectly applicable to this new day league, which once again will be critical to gauge the choices of Barca in the league championship.

In the Barca dressing room are very clear that your options for league win the title passed to change the dynamics mainly negative results away from home. Except for the Santiago Bernabeu, where he prevailed 1-3 in the league, Barca are finding it difficult to get their games away from Camp Nou. And is that except for the overwhelming victory in Chamartín, Barca have won only by the minimum in Gijón and Granada, and the remainder have drawn (Anoeta, Mestalla, San Mamés and Cornellà) or lost, as in Getafe. In total, only 13 of the 24 combined points as possible at home, hence the difference of five points over Real Madrid.
