Second-placed Atletico Madrid, who aren’t rated a title contender despite their bright start to the campaign, remain just three points behind the Catalans after their outstanding 4-0 win over Sevilla and Vilanova insisted the La Liga crown was far from decided.
“We still have 75 points left to play for and Atletico Madrid are only three points behind us. We have a long way to go,” Vilanova told his club’s official website.
“La Liga is not over. I remind you that we have had this advantage before, yet then had to win our match at the Bernabeu (to be sure of success).”
