Barcelona, after their victory at Real Zaragoza, are now three points behind Real Madrid.

"We've topped the table most of the season thanks to the job we're doing and everything we are achieving. We must continue thinking the most imminent game is most important and focus on ourselves, which has been working for us till now."
