This is no time to relax yet, as Busquets warns his teammates after Atletico win
Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets has some words of warning for his teammates after helping the team get all three points in their title decider clash with Atletico Madrid.
The Catalans have been inconsistent in recent performances as they have drawn three games in their last five before the encounter with Simeone’s side on Sunday. However, five-time footballer of the year, Lionel Messi was again the difference between the two sides after guiding a first-half free-kick into the far corner to put Barcelona eight points clear at the summit.
