(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH, ERNESTO VALVERDE, SAYING: "A lot of people ask me if we want to get La Liga boxed off and that's what anyone would want to do, we want to win La Liga, it's in our hands, we'll see if we are able to or not.
We only just played our last game on Saturday and tomorrow we must play yet again, we've been living intense weeks and of course some rotations are possible tomorrow." STORY: Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde insists his side are fully focused on winning La Liga despite next week's mouthwatering Champions League semi-final clash with Liverpool looming on the horizon.
The Catalans travel to Alaves on Tuesday night (April 23) knowing that with a victory and results going their way elsewhere in midweek they can seal a second consecutive league title.
If Atletico Madrid, who play Valencia 24 hours later on Wednesday (April 24) are unable to match Barca's result then Valverde's side will be crowned champions.
