Barcelona must be “realistic” according to boss Ronald Koeman, and accepting a LaLiga title tilt after another poor outcome is unlikely.
Ronald Koeman concedes that it will be “very difficult” for his Barcelona side to challenge Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid for the LaLiga title this season.
Barca was held to a 1-1 draw by battling Eibar at Camp Nou on Tuesday, Ousmane Dembele saving a point for the hosts after Kike Garcia had put Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side ahead.
He said, “You have to be realistic and admit that it will be very complicated. In life nothing is impossible, but now there is a big difference in points with the leader, Atletico, who is doing very well, winning almost all their games and conceding very few goals. It’s going to be very difficult.”
