Barcelona players, Luis Enrique react to La Liga draw against Atlético Madrid

Barça players and manager spoke to the press and took to social media following the Camp Nou game

Barcelona had a tough Wednesday night at Camp Nou, losing its best player to injury and dropping two points after a 1-1 draw against Atlético Madrid. It was a hard-fought match and both teams deserved to get a point, but the Blaugrana were the more disappointing side given they took the lead and played great football for most of the match.

After the game, a few Barça players took to social media to react to the result.

"It's a shame this draw. We played a great match and had a tremendous effort. Now we have to rest and get ready for Saturday's match! Força Barça!!"

Barça manager Luis Enrique spoke to the press after the match, and while he did praise the opponent, Lucho believes his team should have won the game on Wednesday.

"That’s football. These types of games are decided by fine details, they were fortunate to take advantage of that play [Mascherano's error]. We deserved to win based on our approach and how we played. But in football, other factors are at play.

"We had few scoring chances because our opponents didn’t allow us to get them. We’re the best team attacking close to the goal and they’re the best team defending close to the goal.”
