Guardiola has had an unprecedented run since he took over as Barcelona’s first-team coach in the summer of 2008 with a club record 12 trophies, including two Champions League crowns and three straight Spanish league titles.

Yet a surprise 1-0 loss at Getafe on Saturday broke Barcelona’s 27-game unbeaten streak and left them trailing its fierce rival, which is playing its best football in years.

Guardiola, however, says “I don’t think the league has slipped away.”
