Gerard Piqué was in Milan on Monday for the Gentleman Fair Play Awards. The Barça congratulated Juventus for retaining the Serie A title and in declarations to La Gazzetta, also referred to LaLiga in which Barça only need to win their two remaining games - against Espanyol and Granada, to retain the league title.

"We've lost a little of the distance we had opened up in the league but a club like Barcelona cannot pass up a chance like this to win LaLiga". Piqué said, before turning to talk about Juve's successes this season and meeting them in the Champions League final last year: "I thought we played well but they dominated for 10 minutes or so. Luckily, when we made it 2-1 that allowed us to play our own game for the remaining minutes. The final is against the best two sides and if it was us against Juve then it's because they were one of the top sides last year. This season they staged a fantastic fightback and playing at the level they are showing, they could gop on and win the Champions League at any moment".
