"It was a fundamental and difficult match. We had a great rival in front of us, in a field where it is difficult to win points. They have presented us with a complicated game, with problems to circulate the ball and threatening with counterattack."

"We have managed to win. We knew that our rivals had won, but we are always more aware of ourselves. Regardless of which rivals have won, before a match you have to win. You prepare to win and that's it. If the rivals have won, you have more pressure and you deal with it. But you always prepare the game to win. And afer tying at home, we wanted to regain the victory."

"Alba is one of our weapons. In the second part runs of Jordi Alba have been key. He has a very good understanding with Messi and those connections always appear, they are life insurance for the team."
