Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique has stated the season will be a failure, if they fail to win the La Liga.
Barcelona lost their comfortable lead at the top, after losing to Real Madrid in the El Clasico. They are now on level points with Atletico Madrid, who knocked them out of the UCL.
Spain international defender Pique struggled to explain the downturn in form, but said even the best sides have off-days.
“It is normal to have potholes throughout the year but we had bad luck that they have arrived at those crucial moments,” Pique said.
“But we do not give them more importance.
“We still have the league and the Copa del Rey two very exciting titles and we have to go for them.”
But should Barca fail to hold onto their slender La Liga lead with three games to play, Pique said the season would be a failure – as any season without a league title would be.
“As long as I have been at the club, if you do not win the league, it is a failure,” he said.
“There are three league games and we are depending upon ourselves, but we may lose the league if we do not win matches.
“We in this club have to compete for the major titles and the league is [a major title].”
