Iniesta captained the team against PSG / PHOTO: MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Andrés Iniesta spoke to the press after the defeat to PSG, saying that “in some phases, they were the better side. You pay dearly for mistakes in the Champions League when your opponents take their goal chances. We reacted when they scored but we found it hard to equalise or turn the game around”.

“It’s tough not to win but we have to keep going” he continued. “It’s not easy to play here in the Champions League. But we need to carry on as we have done until now. Nobody gives anything away for free. We lost but we just have to press on”.

Here are some other comments from FC Barcelona players after the 3-2 loss in the French capital:

Javier Mascherano:

“You don’t deserve wins. You have to achieve them. We didn’t start the first half well and we struggled to get into the second. You pay a high price for slight errors in games like these. But we carried on battling in the second half”.

“Defeats are always worrying. We need to improve. We could have got a bit more out of it towards the end. But we have to lift our heads up because this hasn’t finished yet. We need to correct our mistakes and keep improving”.

Ivan Rakitic:

“Every game is a test for us. We have to carry on doing what we’ve been doing until now. We have to think positively because we have another very hard game on Saturday. We are self-critical every day”.

“This day was always going to come. But we’re convinced by our football”.
