Vilanova talks down Barca advantage

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova says the Liga title race is not over, despite his side opening up an 11-point lead over champions Real Madrid.

Barca cruised to a 4-0 win over Levante on Sunday, capitalising on Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to Real Betis on Saturday to consolidate their position at the top of the table.

However, Vilanova has warned there is still a long way to go this season, and highlighted the threat posed by second-placed side Atletico Madrid, who defeated Sevilla 4-0 at Vicente Calderon earlier on Sunday.

Vilanova told reporters after the match: “We scored very quickly in the second half and that defined the match. The first half was what we expected, because they are a team that works very well (together) and they break quickly.

“The league is not finished. Firstly because we’ve only played third of it, and then because Atletico are behind us and are very strong.

“There’s still a lot to play for, 75 points is a lot. Also, remember that in the first year that we were 11 points clear of Real Madrid and had to go to the Bernabeu and win.

“Atletico have had a good start, which isn’t a surprise as they finished last season very strongly. All we can do is focus on beating Athletic. I want to focus only on us.”
