Piqué: "Everyone wants to win these games"

Pau Ramírez

Gerard Piqué has admitted that as well as beating Espanyol to win the three points this weekend he wants a Barça victory to show who is the best team in the Catalan capital.

The defender was speaking to Barça TV about the local derby at the new Cornellà-El Prat stadium on Saturday when he outlined why he wants an away day triumph.

Double dream

"Everyone wants to win these games partly because of the three points but also because we have to show who is the best team in the city," Piqué explained. "In that sense, we want to win too. We are playing for it all and need the points to help with the title bid.

"There are nine games left, nine finals including the actual Champions league final, and we have to win them all to win the double."

Staying up

On Espanyol's ambitions for the derby game Piqué recognised that "they need to win to help their survival push" and believes that as a result "it will be a good game to see".
