Sergio Busquets has turned attention to Barcelona’s next fixture, forgetting the draw to Las Palmas and looking at Atletico.
Barcelona were held to a shock draw by Las Palmas, after a Jonathan Calleri penalty cancelled out Messi’s opener.
The Catalans face Atletico this weekend, and Busquets expects a tough match.
The result saw Barca’s lead over second-placed Atletico left at five points and Busquets said: “We’ve dropped two points [against Las Palmas] in an important moment.
“But we knew that it was a difficult ground to come to, even though they’re in the bottom three.
“Sunday’s game against Atletico will be the tougher battle.
“We are in a privileged position in La Liga and we’re going to try and keep it that way with a win this weekend.”
