Sun 09 May 2021 | 6:33

Barcelona assistant coach Alfred Schreuder insisted that his side will not give in on the La Liga title despite dropping two crucial points in the goalless draw against Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona

were held to a 0-0 draw by

Atletico Madrid

at the Camp Nou on Saturday and missed the chance to take control of the title race in their hands.

But

Schreuder

, who stood in for

Ronald Koeman

in the La Blaugrana dugout, remained positive and said there are still three games to play and Barca have the chance to be champions.

He said: "We know that now we have to wait for the results of other games.

"Let's see what Madrid does with Sevilla. We know that we depend on others, but it is still possible to win LaLiga.

"We are where we wanted to be three months ago."

Barcelona dominated possession but struggled to create too many clear chances against a typically defensive Atletico.

"We knew it would be a very difficult game, without a doubt,"

he continued

.

"We had a good chance from Leo [Lionel Messi] in the first half, another from Dembele in the second. We had the ball. We knew that Atletico would be very defensive.

"Obviously there is always an opportunity for the rival. Now we have to focus on the next game.

"We wanted to win, but we are still in this position. We are two points behind Atletico."
