Luis Enrique promised to return to the Camp Nou as a fan next season as he prepares to take charge of Barcelona for the final time at home on Sunday against Eibar.
Malaga have incentive to beat Real Madrid, but the FC crew think Zinedine Zidane's side will win La Liga on the final day.
"We are ready for what will be a key game", the Barcelona coach said at a news conference. There is a thin line between success and failure.
"It doesn't depend on us, but what does depend on us is winning (Sunday's) game".
He added: "It will be tough because Eibar are playing for their highest league finish in the top flight and the way they play, pressuring high up the field, will make things hard". "The only thing we can do is get three points".
Aleix Vidal is sidelined for the remainder of the season after suffering a horrific ankle injury at Alaves in February, while Rafinha is also out after limping off in the game at Granada last month.
"I was very fortunate to come here and become the manager". If that's not enough, we will congratulate the champions.
"It will be a special night but when I accepted the job I knew it wasn't going to be for a long time".
Speaking to the clubs official website, he said: "I am very proud to have formed part of the club's history and to have given my all".
"It is not a goodbye, but a see you later". "Next year I will be back at the Camp Nou as a member and enjoy the games".
Gerard Pique missed the game at Las Palmas last weekend through illness and is a big doubt once again, while Javier Mascherano is sidelined after pulling a hamstring in the warm-up for that match.
Enrique announced in March he will be standing down as Barcelona boss at the end of the season.
"Young players? I'd like to use all the players I have, but if they're not at the right level then I can't play them".
