Barça got back to winning ways against Cartegena and Pedro - with two goals - was the star of the show:  “it was tough. They went ahead and we had to fight our way back into the game. This wasn't a game we could have lost - the team is moving in the right direction”, he explained after the match.

Pedro shrugged off his own performance, insisting: "I'm just here to work for the team", explaining that his high number of away goals was because: “I get more chances in those games".

Jordi Alba back

On his return to the team after a three month inury lay off, Jordi Alba explained: “physically, I am much better- I've learnt not to rush things and to look after myself better. I'm happy to be back and to have played 80 minutes".

Alba also referred to today's World Cup draw: "we've got a tough group, but right now I am just focussed on Barça and winning everything we are involved in".

Below are some post match reactions from other team members:

Sergi Roberto

“The team showed we could react to going behind"

“I'm comforatble in midfield playing with thiese team mates"
