Andres Iniesta retains title hope

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta still hopes that the Catalan outfit can win La Liga this season.

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is still hopeful that his side can win La Liga this season.

As it stands, the Catalan outfit are second in the table, four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid with just three games remaining.

However, Sunday's 3-2 win over Villarreal, where Barca were forced to come from 2-0 behind, has given Iniesta a slight hope of retaining the title.

"We played almost on fire. Not because the game was bad, it was good, but the goal near the end of the first half affected us and more so with 2-0," Iniesta told Sport.

"This team, if they win or play well, plays football. When it doesn't, things get complicated. After this victory we can hope for the title a little longer but it's true that with every game there's less time until the end and it's increasingly difficult.

"But we know that we can't fail. If our rivals don't fail we will congratulate them."

Barca boss Gerardo Martino is widely expected to leave the Camp Nou this summer.
