“Three points as important as the derby game”

David Puig

The first thing is to win in Bilbao - Gerard Piqué reckons that the team must take each game as it comes and not lose focus by looking to the Inter and Madrid games.

Gerard Piqué is just focussed on winning at the San Mames on Saturday night, well aware of the importance of a win ahead of the Madrid derby the weekend. Speaking at a press conference before training this evening, Piqué stressed the importance of the three points on offer in Bilbao: “that's our first objective. The team is focussed and we know that we always seem to find it a bit tougher after an international break, but there are three points at stake on Saturday, just the same as in the derby game”.

Bilbao up for revenge?

They also know that we are favourites and that just means we have to give everything we can to make sure we win”.

Importance of staying top

The team obviously want to go into the Madrid game as leaders and to do that they need a win at San Mames: “you have to make your point and ensure that your rivals take note. Saturday we have to win and then move on to the Inter and Madrid games”.
