In an interview broadcast on Barça TV, Leo Messi has insisted that Barça still have a realistic chance of winning the league on the last day of the season.

Messi spoke today (Monday) at a promotional event at the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña in Barcelona. In answer to questions about the neck-and-neck race for the league title, he replied: “It’s complicated but I’m confident that Mallorca can pull off a surprise”.

The last game

Barça travel the short distance down the coast to Tarragona for their last match of the season against Gimnàstic while Real Madrid receive Mallorca in the Bernabeu. According to Messi: “Barça will go there to win, as always. We have to think about our game then we’ll have to wait”.

“It was in our hands”

As for Saturday’s draw against Espanyol – and the effect that had on the title race - Messi admitted that the players were disappointed to have let the opportunity of going into the last game of the season with a two-point lead vanish in thin air. However, he insisted the players were still upbeat about their chances: “We have to focus on the game we have left because absolutely anything can happen”.
