We won’t win La Liga like that, fumes Pique

November 28, 2016


The holders have no hope of retaining La Liga if they play as they did against Real Sociedad on Sunday, according to Gerard Pique. Gerard Pique says Barcelona cannot hope to defend their title if they repeat the performance against Real Sociedad on Sunday. The champions were held to a 1-1 draw that extends their nine-year winless run at Anoeta and leaves them six points behind LaLiga leaders Real Madrid ahead of next week’s Clasico. Lionel Messi snatched an equalizer shortly after Willian Jose had put the home side ahead, but Barca were second best throughout the contest and were fortunate not to lose, with Juanmi seeing a goal unjustly ruled out for offside while Carlos Vela twice hit the woodwork. And Pique questioned the quality and mentality of his side after the match, telling Movistar Plus: “We were beaten in performance and attitude. “In the first half, we vanished. It will be very difficult to win LaLiga like this. “They pressed us well and prevented us from playing our game. You can hardly say that was Barca, but a draw from today isn’t too bad.”
