Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has scoffed at claims of their title challenge already being over.
Barcelona now sit seven points clear of Real at the top of the table.
"There are people who can think the league is finished, but we do not think like that," he said at his pre-match press conference.
"If you think the league is over, congratulations, but the season is very long and we'll be there."
An alarming inability to convert chances has been the hallmark of Los Blancos' challenging domestic campaign to this point.
"There is no explanation as to why we haven't been able to score goals," he continued.
"I'm not worried and I'm not thinking too much about why this is happening, our job is to analyse and improve.
"We are going to have chances, I would be more worried if we weren't making chances."
