Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard insists his side will keep on fighting for the title even though the odds are now firmly in Real Madrid´s favour following a remarkable penultimate round of matches in the Primera Liga.

Barca looked set to go three points clear at the summit as they led 2-1 heading into the final minutes against Espanyol but last-gasp equalisers at both the Nou Camp and La Romareda where Madrid were trailing Zaragoza 2-1 - by Espanyol´s Raul Tamudo and Madrid´s Ruud van Nistelrooy - means Madrid will now win the title if they defeat Real Mallorca in next weekend´s season-finale.

"We have to prepare for the final weekend, mathematically it is still possible," said the Dutchman, whose side will win their third successive Spanish title if they better Madrid´s result next Sunday. "It is necessary to continue working and fighting for the last game."
