Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman says he will take an interest in Sunday’s Madrid derby but is unfazed by the result as the LaLiga title race heats up.
The Catalans defeated Osasuna 2-0 on Saturday to extend their unbeaten LaLiga run to 16 matches and close to within two points of leaders Atletico Madrid, who have two games in hand.
One of those is Sunday’s Madrid derby where third-placed Real Madrid will also look to close within two points of Atletico with victory.
Atletico have wavered in recent matches, dropping points in three of their past five, opening the door for Barca and Madrid, although Koeman said he would be unfazed by the outcome.
“The derby in Madrid? The most important thing is our result,” Koeman said.
“But of course we’re interested in it. Any result would be good.”
