"Still it does not have a big meaning. This can give a lot of turns. This party in no case went to be decisive, said it Zidane and I in the previous. Have the 'goal average' in favour, but remain a lot of points for playing. It is a hard defeat, these parties always affect you, but have spare capacity for sobreponernos. There are a lot of things that rescue, positive. The dynamics of the team is good and the football sometimes has these things", manifested convinced in the appearance in front of the media.
The technician barcelonista specified that in the trip no only there are own faults, but also merit of the rival. "Sometimes it is normal that you fail, but when the rival tightens you as it has done. Had warned that it was necessary to take out the fast balloon to avoid this pressure, but is not easy against players like this", commented, and signalled like key the nerves that prevented to his pupilos follow commanding with the possession of the balloon.
"They remain a lot of points for playing and have spare capacity for sobreponernos"
"We have done a good first part, they have done it better in the second. Had quite controlled the party, but have begun to commit some imprecisions and losses. They have tightened us intense arrive and this has generated us distrust. We have happened difficulties. Our meeting has been in the first part because we have been enough well and have generated occasions. It touches to congratulate to the rival", sentenced.
When it was questioned by the worst that leaves this defeat, did not doubt, and ensured that it was the feeling to be able to have reached the triumph: "The more frustrante is to have occasions and not to mark them. In the first part have done things very well and have attained to surpass this pressure, something that in the second has not been able to be. We have arrived well, but we have not hit. After the rest have begun well, but committed some imprecisions. This has not allowed us advance and has generated us quite a lot of distrust with the losses".
In this sense, affirmed that it is something natural that the Barça tend to suffer when it does not have the ball to his disposal, since it is a more thought group for the attack that for the defence. In spite of everything, situates it like a pending question, and links it with the already valued of the tarpaulin of face to door: "Perhaps they are the characteristics of this team. It is not easy to attack and defend at the same time. We have achieved to control the balloon a lot of more times. They are phases in the parties that one crosses and at the end depends a bit of the tarpaulin that have".
Setién Reveals that Messi did not have problems
After planting the focus on the individual analyses, Setién revealed that Leo Messi did not suffer physical problems, and ensured that it does not exist a dependency exaggerated in spite of the quality of the '10': "Have other players, but is true that Messi is importantísimo.

It has not said at all neither I have seen at all".
On the bajón that affected him in the Classical, the trainer attributed it to a punctual situation, and recalcó that in the hot moments always goes to prefer that it was the captain the one who throw of the car, in spite of that in this occasion was not hit. "I prefer that the balloon was in the feet of the best because they always happen things. Perhaps in some circumstances is not the appropriate. There is greater profit whenever the balloon is in the feet of Leo", underlined although the Real Madrid attained to contain it with collective labelings.
Finally, it indicated that his bet by the control was very meditada, and that also contemplated to step advance taking out to one of the forwards that saved in the bench: "Arturo gives us greater control and defensive work. It helps us enough in the right zone with Messi and Semedo. Braithwaite Is a much more offensive footballer. His desmarques in depth are more valid with more spaces. At the beginning we wanted to have more control and not having so many risks".
