Barcelona captain Carles Puyol insists they can "retrieve" Real Madrid's five point lead.

Barca conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 with Espanyol on Sunday, 24 hours after Jose Mourinho's team had demolished Granada 5-1.

However, defender Puyol is refusing to panic, telling the club's official website: "Five points is a significant distance, but it can be retrieved.

"We will not concede the league and will fight to the end.

"We still aim to be champions."
