Clasico won't decide title: Xavi
“To win would be an important step, but it would not put an end to la Liga. Whatever happens Sunday, there will still be a long way to go,” Xavi said yesterday. A win for Barcelona would see them move 11 points ahead of Madrid.
The Blaugrana will be without captain Carles Puyol after the defender dislocated his elbow during the club’s 2-0 win over Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday, while the status of Puyol’s defensive partner Gerard Pique, who is struggling with a left foot injury, is also a concern for Tito Vilanova’s men.
