Barcelona coach Martino happy to be proved wrong

Barcelona boss Tata Martino is thrilled to have been proven wrong in their title battle.

Barca are now favourites for the La Liga.

"We are aware that we've been handed a unique opportunity," Martino said. "But the games still have to be played. You can't just assume we're going to win because that would be disrespectful to our two remaining opponents.

After drawing with Getafe, everyone assumed that Barça's title bid was over, Martino included.

"We are happy we were wrong" said the coach. "But anyone would have thought that. Now we're just happy to have a chance again … But we must remember that Elche are very strong at home and need the points to stay up."
