Sergi Roberto is loving life. In his first match back after overcoming a groin injury, he was one of the protagonists of the game against Getafe, assisting both of Barça's goals. The first was a spectacular no-look heel pass that left Luis Suárez all alone to open the scoring, while the second was for Neymar, who finished at the far post.

"I wasn't thinking about it at the time, it's decided by thousandths of a second and it  was the only option I had. The important thing is that it served to help the team," Sergi Roberto told reporters after the game.

In addition, Roberto said he left behind all the problems related to his injury. "After an injury it is important to get back into the rhythm of competition. I felt fine physically, without any discomfort."

"It was a very smart game, we had the ball and we found space. Getafe don't give you a lot of room, but we looked for solutions and we reached the goal."

"You always have to rely on your teammate, the pass from Sergi Roberto was half the goal."

"We know Busquets is critical to bring the ball out and mark up, he's is very intelligent."

"Everyone knows what their role on the field. I won't try and dribble around three or four players, that's what Neymar does. You have to adapt to what the coach asks."

"Everyone remembers that Messi is the best in the world, we all miss him."
