Quique Setien admits Barca lost advantage in La Liga title race. Barcelona boss Quique Setien has admitted his side have lost the advantage in the La Liga title race with a 0-0 draw at Sevilla.
The Catalans endured an off night at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with Julen Lopetegui’s side the stronger team in the closing stages.
Barcelona now have a three points lead at the top over Real Madrid, but Zinedine Zidane’s side will go ahead of them with a win at Real Sociedad on Sunday, due to their head-to-head record.
“We knew before the restart, it would be difficult to win every game,” as per a post match report from Marca.
“I am not happy to be taking a point, but it is the lesser of two evils.”
“The reality is the title is no longer dependent on us, that has changed. But I don’t think Real Madrid will win every game.”
