Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto reflected upon their La Liga title chances after a 0-0 draw against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames on Sunday.

The right-back admitted that Real Madrid can never be counted out of the race and their latest progression to the second place is evidence to that.

“We knew Real Madrid would be up there,” he said after the game, according to Marca.

“Now they have swapped places with Atletico but we are still first and we expect that, until the end of the season, we will maintain our advantage.”

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was the sole reason Barcelona earned one point instead of zero. The German pulled off some incredible saves to deny the hosts.

“He was key with the three important saves,” Roberto said of the German.

“That is why we have the best goalkeeper in the world.”

Overall, the full-back stressed that it was a positive week for the club.

He said: “We are not doing that badly.

“We are first in LaLiga and in the semi-finals of the Copa (del Rey).

“There is a long way to go but we are having a great season.”
