Mario Suarez believes that Atletico Madrid were near perfect in their performance on Wednesday, making Barcelona ‘uncomfortable’.
Atleti recorded a 1-1 draw in the Supercopa de Espana first leg, but shaded the play and saw Barca struggle for rhythm.
“I think that we had to make it very difficult and for that we have played the perfect match,” Suarez commented afterwards.
“It is a pity that we could not have scored another goal, but we must be proud of this team.
“They were very uncomfortable, but they have very good players.
“On one play in the second half, we conceded a goal, but we should still be happy with the game.”
