Valverde Urges Caution Over La Liga Chase

Valverde Urges Caution Over La Liga Chase

This weekend was the kind of weekend you can only dream of when you have ambitions of winning La Liga.

Not only did Barcelona travel to Madid and beat Real Madrid 3-0, the teams below us who harbour ambitions of finishing top of the table come May, all lost.

In fact, the four teams immediately below us - Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Real Madrid and Sevilla, all lost.

But whilst it was a dream weekend for Barcelona, Ernesto Valverde urged caution with regards to the title chase being over, remarking,

'The first half of the season isn't even over yet. We're ahead of our rivals, but we're not focused on that. We want to win our games and avoid losing any."

And as for the manner in which Barcelona took apart Real Madrid, Valverde further added,

'We figured out how to beat Real Madrid's pressure in our end. The game was wide open, and neither team clearly dominated play. And we persevered until later on when we took control of the match.'

The win also keeps Valverde`s proud record intact of not losing a La Liga game since he took over the Barcelona hot-seat from Luis Enrique.
