Iniesta played a key role in Barça’s win over Madrid (3-2). He forced a penalty to make it 2-1 and provided the assist for Xavi to score the third. “I am happy with my game” he said in an interview with ‘El Marcador’ on Barça TV. “But I hope there is much more to come.”

On course for first trophy

He was also more than happy with the way his team played. “We played 90 very complete minutes. It’s not easy so early on in the season, against such an opponent and in such heat.” But there were a lot of positives to be taken from the match. “We on good course to win the trophy and the sooner we hit our top form, the better”.

Happy with transfers

Asked about Jordi Alba and Alex Song, the two summer signings, Iniesta was full of praise for both of them. “Alba was here for years, he is a player like us, and I don’t think he’ll have any trouble adapting” he said on the former, and on Song he commented that “he is a great reinforcement for this season and those to come”.
