Barcelona coach Setien: The title is in our hands

Barcelona coach Quique Setien is delighted with the attitude of his players ahead of the LaLiga restart.

The Catalans restart their LaLiga Santander campaign away at Real Mallorca on Saturday.

"They've returned like a shot," Setien told Cope and Radio MARCA about his players.

"Apart from [Samuel] Umtiti, they've returned better than they were before.

"We're going to be a fresher team than in March.

"They're been treated and they're fresh to start an 11-game season."

Setien's side restart their campaign two points ahead of Real Madrid in the LaLiga Santander title race.

"LaLiga is more in Barcelona's hands," the Spanish coach said.

"I prefer being two points ahead than how Real Madrid are.

"I don't know who playing behind closed doors favours.

"I'd love to play with a crowd."
