The result confirmed Girona's title credentials.
Michel said: "We are saved, with 41 points. We have reached the figure before. We have made history, it is a game to remember. It has been a great game. Any fan will have seen two teams that had the intention of winning.
"We have done a great favor to the LaLiga, playing face to face and hurting the rival. We have defended at some moments, but it is to be happy. I'm very happy. We have made Barça run backwards. We did it. And if we do it with these players we can do it with anyone. This is entering another dimension.
"I'm happy with the performance. I don't know if we are capable of holding up to the level of Barça, Real and Atlético throughout the season, but the performance makes me happy. The players are making history. Today football fans are a little bit of Girona. Many people will say: 'these guys play football well.'
"I don't know if we can win LaLiga.
"It is not our goal, it is the pressure from Barça, I have told Xavi."
