Andrés Iniesta was one of the few who had a good performance in Barcelona's loss to Paris Saint-Germain, perhaps along with Neymar and Messi. As the team's captain in the match, Iniesta took the lead and said the team needs to get better and stop making the mistakes that happened last night.
But he also saw some good things, and he thought Barça had chances to tie the game and leave Paris with a point. That still doesn't negate the bad performance, he thinks.
"In some phases, they were the better side. You pay dearly for mistakes in the Champions League when your opponents take their goal chances. We reacted when they scored but we found it hard to equalise or turn the game around.
"It’s tough not to win but we have to keep going. It’s not easy to play here in the Champions League. But we need to carry on as we have done until now. Nobody gives anything away for free. We lost but we just have to press on".
It's interesting to see that every player has the same mindset. They're not making excuses. They know how bad the mistakes were and they understand that those errors cannot happen again. This character is fundamental to a team that needs to bounce back and play better. Keep going, Barça.
