"At the end, the team was tired. They have taken out players up that they have engaged us. They have created us problems and have not been able to fulfil all the field. And here it costs us more. We had to have resolved the party clarísimamente in the first part with two or three goals. It was a very comfortable party in the first part".

"If we had marked more goals in the first part, some player more would have rested"

In addition to energies, to the Barça was missing him something of inspiration and puntería of face to the goal of Masip. "This happens in the football. The inspiration goes and comes.
