FC Barcelona secured a crucial win at Butarque. Luis Suárez, with a brace, and Paulinho scored the goals in the 3-0 victory following the international break. Despite the comfortable result, the game against Leganés was not a comfortable one.

Ernesto Valverde made this clear in the post-match press conference: “Leganés were very combative and we found it hard to get between their lines so we really value this win.” He added: “Even though we know we need to improve, we are happy as it is another step forward.”

Suárez put in an impressive performance as he was back amongst the goals but so did Marc-André ter Stegen. The goalkeeper, with some impressive saves, also led Barça to victory. Valverde discussed his German international: “It is important to be decisive in both boxes. Marc gives us security at the back and lots of confidence.”

Ter Stegen also spoke to the media following the win as did Jordi Alba and Luis Suárez. Read on for the blaugrana players’ best quotes:
