The champions looked set for victory after taking the lead through Lionel Messi, but the hosts hit back and scored three goals in seven second-half minutes to pick up the win.
Busquets spoke about his team’s performance after the match but was unable to put his finger on where it all went wrong.
“There’s no explanation. It was an even game. We did the most difficult part, putting ourselves ahead. But they landed a blow and it did us damage,” he said.
“They play with a lot of people in attack. On one of the goals, we couldn’t get the second ball. We were on a good run It was a very fair game. I think that the game was equal but the result was excessive.”
