Valdes and Bojan keen for Real slip up

5 May 2010 08:10

(GSM) - Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Bojan Krkic said they are playing the waiting game after the Catalans put themselves four points clear of rivals Real Madrid with a 4-1 win over Tenerife on Tuesday.

Lionel Messi put Barca ahead on 17 minutes and added a second in the final minute.

Argentine Roman Martinez stunned the champions by equalising for Tenerife shortly before half-time following an error from home captain Carles Puyol.

But second-half goals from Bojan Krkic (in the 63rd minute) and substitute Pedro Rodriguez (77) turned the game in Barca's favour before Messi rubbed salt in the wound with his late strike.

Now the Blaugrana are waiting to see how Real do away to Mallorca tonight, knowing that should los Merengues slip up, they would step closer to a second consecutive title.

"It was a tough day with the weather, and the busy calendar is really weighing on us now but we have given everything. It's a very competitive league and we won and now have to wait," Valdes told AS after the match.

Bojan said he was happy with the win and revealed he will be watching tonight's game at the ONO Estadi, hoping Real drop points.

"I'm happy with how things are going, there are only two games left and we're getting what we want. It is important that the fans are supporting us as always. They, like us, are eager to win the title. Their help is essential," Bojan said.

"It was important to win today, Real are a great team with great players and have a difficult game tomorrow. We hope they drop some points.

"Yes I will be watching Madrid, I will be having a meal for the game."
