Sergio Roberto paid tribute to goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen after Barcelona secured a brilliant Copa del Rey comeback to knock Sevilla out of the tournament.
Cillessen took his place between the sticks as usual in the Copa del Rey and made two great saves in the first half, including denying Ever Banega from the penalty spot.
Roberto was quick to praise the Dutch goalkeeper after the match.
“Cillessen made two key saves, if Banega scored the penalty or Cillessen didn’t save the other chance, it would have been a different game.
“I’m happy for him, he had a brilliant match. And it’s great to get through.”

Barcelona’s attackers will get most of the praise after the holders ran out 6-1 winners, but there’s no denying that Cillessen played a big role in Wednesday’s win.
