Barcelona enters the final phase of the 2015 / 2016 season with hopes high needing only one more win to grab the La Liga title.
The Catalans is desperate to beat Granada in order to clinch back-to-back La Liga titles this weekend. Barca will also play against Sevilla in the final of the Copa del Rey on May 22.
Javier Mascherano is advising against any slip-ups at Los Carmenes. The Luis Enrique-led team understands that arch-rival, Real Madrid is patiently waiting to pounce on any careless mistake from the Catalans as the psychological pressure builds up.

“At the end of the day we are not only playing against our opponents, but ourselves,” conceded Mascherano in an interview with ESPN.
“We are a unit and know it will all depend on us. It will be a tough game like the others we’ve had in the past few weeks.
“There is going to be no margin for error, which means we’ll try to go out in the best way possible to avoid any mistakes.”
“We know it will be difficult playing against a team who have nothing to play for, but hopefully we’ll get more freedom and time.”
