"I can't read too much into it because the game is over very early for us. The excitement we had vanished in twenty minutes. Between the goals and the sending off, not even the most daring of us thought about a comeback with ten men on this pitch. We tried with our strengths and limitations, but frankly it was very difficult.

"I don't think this in any way detracts from the team's season. It's difficult at the Camp Nou. It's very difficult to score here with 11, imagine then playing with 10. It was the perfect storm for everything to go wrong.

"I think the season can be described as good or very good.”
