We didn’t have a good game and we had to take a step forward. This game demanded more from us, we could have given a lot more.”

In Catalan sports, they harshly criticized the team’s ability, and wrote: “Barcelona simply did not play football and let the train pass them. They failed to crack Bilbao’s defense and wasted a gift from Real Madrid. It was a very disappointing game.”
