Neymar: Barcelona must look after themselves in the title race
The LaLiga title race is thoroughly on after Barcelona’s win away to Atletico Madrid on Sunday afternoon, with Neymar believing that the Blaugrana’s destiny is largely in their own hands.
A strong performance from the winger down the left flank contributed to his side’s 2-1 victory and, despite much criticism of their recent outings, the Brazilian is hopeful of retaining the league crown.
“We do not think about other teams, we must look after ourselves,” Neymar said post-match. “Our rivals will do their bit or they will fail.
“I am happy for the win, we knew it would be very difficult, and congratulations to the team.”
Next up for the Catalans is Sporting Gijon on Wednesday night but attention has already partly turned to Barcelona’s return leg with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on March 8.
“That’s another tournament and for now we’re looking at the league,” stated the attacker. “Next week we’ll think about PSG.”
