Jordi Alba says it would be pretty foolish if Barcelona were to fail to win La Liga this season after moving 10 points clear with 10 games left to play.

Ernesto Valverde’s side are red-hot favourites to retain their league title, but Alba says the team still have work to do.

“I think losing this LaLiga Santander would be very foolish with the points advantage we have,” he said.

”But there are still many points [available] and we have to continue.”

Barca face a derby against Espanyol in their first game back after the international break and then play struggling Villarreal before welcoming Atletico Madrid to the Camp Nou.
