Davids hails ´mythological´ Barca

26 March 2012 13:00

Former Netherlands midfielder Edgar Davids believes Barcelona will successfully defend their Champions League title.

The 39-year-old, who wore the Barca jersey during a six-month loan spell in 2004, also stressed that Barca are very much in the La Liga title race, despite trailing leaders Real Madrid by six points with nine games remaining.

"Barcelona are not a normal team, but a team full of mythological gods," Davids told El Mundo Deportivo.

"They're on another level to all the other teams. They will win the Champions League again."

The ex-Juventus midfielder warned there could be further twists and turns in store in the La Liga race after Real Madrid saw their gap over the Catalans slashed from 10 to six points within a week.

"Madrid still hold a comfortable lead, but I believe that the league won't be decided until the last few games," he said.

"Barca will fight til the end, and a surprise could be in store if Madrid lose another game."

Barcelona are preparing for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash away to AC Milan.
