Antoine Griezmann offered his thoughts on Barcelona’s defeat to Paris Saint-Germain and admitted his team simply weren’t good enough against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The Catalan giants look to be heading out of the tournament after a 4-1 defeat to the French champions, and Griezmann seemed pretty upset to have conceded so many goals.

Despite his obvious disappointment, the France international also insisted Barca would head to Paris on March 10 in search of victory in the return fixture.

“We needed to have the perfect match, we did not. They had it… It is hard to come up with something (to say), after having conceded four. We were ready, we wanted to have a great match, they were better than us. There is nothing to say.

“There is still the second leg. It will be difficult, we are not going to go into it just to see the sights. We need to work as we were. The season is still long. We are professionals. We will need to go there to win and try to turn the situation around.”

Griezmann was spotted jetting off straight after the game as the players have a couple of days off now. The team are back in action on Sunday in La Liga against Cadiz.
