Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola insists there's still plenty of twists left in the title race after dropping two points against Espanyol.

The 1-1 draw leaves Barca five points behind leaders Real Madrid.

"It will not be easy because they've had an impeccable trajectory," conceded Guardiola when asked about hauling in Real.

"There is still a lot of Liga still yet to be played and a lot of points up for grabs."
