Luis Suarez: Barcelona must not give up

Barcelona matchwinner Luis Suarez admits they must keep fighting after victory over Espanyol.

Real Madrid are currently top of the table and the Catalan side know that Los Blancos need to slip up if they are to have any chance of winning the title.

"Our goal is to win each of our three games," Suarez said after the win over Espanyol, which moves the Catalans within a point of Real Madrid ahead of Los Blancos' game on Friday.

"Then we have to wait for the opponent to slip up.

"We're only thinking about our own games."

The 1-0 win over their cross-city rivals on Wednesday didn't come easily though, despite showing signs of life with an impressive defeat of Villarreal at the weekend.

"We knew how difficult the game would be because of their situation," he added, referencing Espanyol's need for a win to avoid relegation.

"There was some fatigue after the game on Sunday and it was noticeable in the intensity we had.

"The important thing is that we won and added more points."
