Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard believes pressure will play a key role in the race for Spain´s Primera Liga title after his side sent out a warning to leaders Real Madrid with a resounding 6-0 hammering of Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Two goals from Lionel Messi, and one apiece from Gianluca Zambrotta, Samuel Eto´o, Ronaldinho and Andres Iniesta ended a five-match winless streak against Atletico and put Barca level on 69 points with Real at the top, but second to Fabio Capello´s side due to their inferior head-to-head record.

"With three games left Real have to see if they can withstand the pressure of being leaders. It is the same for us though, and we´ll have to see what happens," said Rijkaard.
