Iniesta admits Barcelona players convinced overhauling Real Madrid

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has warned Real Madrid they're coming to get them.

Barca now trail Real by six points at the top of the table after victory over Athletic Bilbao.

"Scoring goals is always a joy - that's why I celebrated with so much intensity," Iniesta told fcbarcelona.com. "It just came out that way. I always want to help and play well.

"We needed to win the three points - that's what's really important. If we keep on winning all three points each week we'll have a chance to win the title at the end of the season."

His sentiments were echoed by youngster Thiago Alcantara, who said: "We hope to cut into (Real's) lead. We believe we can make a comeback.

"Everything is possible and we can fight, however, we are not only dependent on ourselves."
