Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves has dismissed Real Madrid's Liga leadership.

Real leapfrogged Barca after the weekend's results, but Alves insists Barca remain the Liga's top team.

Alves said: "I do not think of Real Madrid as leaders because we haven't played eachother twice.

"Clearly (Barcelona are favourites), nor are Barca going to suddenly surrender everything. If they (Real Madrid) want to be champions, they must still beat us."
