Marc Bartra  was one of the surprise selections for the side to play against PSG, starting on the right of a three man defence, but he put in an excellent performance, including a goal line clearance with the scores at 2-2. After the game, Bartra explained: “it wasn’t easy – but I am happy both for myself and the team. This was a 100% team effort and we did really well”.

Bartra reckons that Luis Enrique’s style was forged when he was in charge of Barça B, a period which: “was the best years for me. You never know until an hour before kick off if you will play and that keeps us all on our toes” Bartra has made more start than ever for the first team at the start of this season and he admitted: “ I can feel the confidence the boss and my team mates have in me. I feel I am a part of this side and I am getting more games. The truth is though that I treat all the games the same, against a Champions League striker or in a Cup game against lower division opponents”.

Looking to the next round, Bartra insists: “it doesn’t matter who we play – if we continue the way we are performing right now, it’ll all be a lot easier”
