With Sunday’s results meaning Barça can still take the title if they beat Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou next Saturday, Andrés Iniesta confirmed the team’s determination to finish the season on a high when he spoke at this lunchtime’s press conference: "we have a one-off chance to win the league at home and in front of our supporters. We’ll be giving everything, 200%, and let’s hope we can all celebrate a win together”.Why won’t we deserve it if we win? We’ve led the table, lost big games, won big games .... the league is about a whole season of effort

Iniesta disagreed that in some way Atletico deserved the title more, explaining: “whoever wins will deserve it – why won’t we deserve it if we win? We’ve led the table, lost big games, won big games .... the league is about a whole season of effort, but right now, we will be putting a whole year’s work on a 90 minute game. I think we would all have signed up for this – a must win game in the last match of the season, at home to Atletico Madrid. Playing at home takes a lot of pressure of us and if we win I think it will be a bigger celebration than ever. This team has never had that tension of going into the last game with the title at stake”.

Iniesta is clear that: “whether we’ve done things right this season or not, this is our final. This will be different from the Champions League game, though the game against them here was the one that we felt best in. For Saturday we have to ensure we play with pace and skill and make the most of our chances. Right know, both teams know each other really well, so it’ll be the small details that decide the game”. The team also need the supporters to give 200%, just as they always have done at difficult moments

The Spanish midfielder also called on the Camp Nou fans to get behind the team on Saturday: “the team also need the supporters to give 200%, just as they always have done at difficult moments. We all need to pull in the same direction and be positive”.It’ll be an intense and exciting end to the season, it’ll be a great game to watch! Iniesta also admitted that "winning the league can’t cover up a poor season and if we do win it that shouldn’t change anything about the future of the team. Winning the league would be a great way to sign off and it’d be good to do it for Martino after all he has had to go through”.

Finally, Iniesta concluded the press conference by declaring: “it’ll be an intense and exciting end to the season, it’ll be a great game to watch!”
