The Zinedine Zidane’s side benefitted from a number of marginal calls against Real Sociedad as they recorded the win they needed to go top of La Liga, and now Barcelona is in trouble because they will have to work harder and also pray that Real Madrid drops points again.
After the Barcelona-Sevilla draw, Gerard Pique was spotted assuring his audience that it will be a big mistake and therefore very difficult to see his side drop point(s). In his words; “It will be difficult to win this league. We will do everything we can. But from what I’ve seen in recent weeks, it would be a surprise if Real Madrid drop points.” While Some took the statement to mean that Pique believed that the Blancos are a superior side to the current crop at Camp Nou, others believed the former Spanish Defender was pointing a finger squarely at La Liga officials after Madrid were the beneficiaries of some debatable refereeing calls in their first two matches back following the return.
