Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says that Real Madrid are still very much in the La Liga title race.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has insisted that Real Madrid are not out of the La Liga title race despite a poor start to the season.

The new campaign is just three games old, but Madrid have suffered two defeats and currently trail leaders Barcelona by six points.

However, Pique has said that the gap means nothing at this stage of the season.

"We have started with nine points in the league but that doesn't mean the league will be easy or a done deal," he told reporters at a press conference.

"It'll be a tough competition until the very end so I don't think Madrid will be far behind us."

Champions Atletico, meanwhile, have taken seven points from their three games.
