Barca boss fires title warning

Sports | REUTERS 7 Apr 2021

Coach Ronald Koeman says Barcelona have what it takes to win their nine remaining games and sweep to the La Liga title after snatching a last-gasp 1-0 win over Real Valladolid.

Barca were far from their best but a stoppage-time volley from Ousmane Dembele gave them a sixth straight league win and closed the gap with leaders Atletico Madrid to one point.

"We weren't feeling fresh, maybe because of the international break, but if we get back to how we were before then we're capable of winning all our games," Koeman said. "We're at the decisive stage in the title race and it's going to be exciting right until the end."

Valladolid's Kenan Kodro headed against the crossbar early on while Barca survived a VAR review on a handball by Jordi Alba in the second half.
