Coach of Real Madrid, José Mourinho, considers that his team will have to win "many points" to win the Liga against Barcelona, though he added that their chances will be less if the rivals of the now champion face their games thinking they can't win.
"Barcelona has the league and it'll be theirs until the last day. We're the ones that have to think about how many points we need. I don't know how many, surely a lot, specially if some teams play against them and give away the games, knowing or thinking they can't win, and put in their second team... if that happens many times, it'll be harder."
The Portuguese know that the greates rival will be Pep Guardiola's team, without leaving aside others, but he also knows that the rest of the teams won't be easy to beat. "Barcelona is an important team and we'll have to win a lot of points, without forgetting the other teams that are also in a good moment and are proving they can get close. There aren't 20 candidates to win the league, but yes 19 rivals that will bring trouble to us. We haven't had an easy game so far, because these teams put up really hard games against us."
Finally, he added: "In Italy, each game is very tough because of the way the competition is, because of the tactic, that always come over the technical and esthetical aspects. Here you have a bit of everything, a very tough league. There'll always be differences between the teams on top and the rest, but Hércules is promoted from second division and defeats Barcelona, Real Sociedad does the same and could've taken away some points from us... they're very well-organized teams, they know what they're playing at."
