Luis Suarez has said that Barcelona are ready to pounce on any slip up from Real Madrid.
“What we have to do is win our next three games,” Suarez, who moved third on Barca’s list of all-time scorers, said afterwards. “Whatever Madrid do is up to them.
“If the rival drops points then fantastic, we have to think about being there if they do.”
Suarez added: “We knew it was going to be difficult. We knew their situation. We have to be aware of the fact that we put in a great performance on Sunday and were still feeling the consequences of that physically. The important thing is to win and to get three more points.
“I think if I didn’t score in the first half or Barcelona didn’t create more chances, that’s virtue of the rival, who were very well organised.
“I think they make it difficult for Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba to push up on the flanks. But eventually the chance came and I’m delighted to be able to take it.
“I didn’t see Ansu Fati’s [red card] because there was a player in the way and the other one I didn’t see either, there was another rival blocking my view.
“But in both cases VAR – which is there to help in these kind of situations – was able to help the referee to take the right decisions.”
