Barcelona coach Vilanova won't consider title race over

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova refuses to accept that the title race is over.

Real Madrid could only draw 2-2 with Espanyol on Sunday to leave them 13 points off the pace, but Vilanova is taking nothing for granted.

"In my first year (2008-09) we were 12 points back and we had to go to the Bernabeu and play for the title," Vilanova said. "Now there's a team that's only nine points behind us.

"I don't think that this title is ours to lose. If there is a team that has the capacity to win a lot of points, and they overtake us, then they deserve the title. It happened in 2009 and it could happen again.

"La Liga is not easy and it certainly isn't boring."
