Mascherano: We were lucky

Javier Mascherano has conceded that Barcelona were ‘lucky’ to beat Sevilla 3-2 on Saturday evening.

The Blaugrana beat the Rojiblancos thanks to a 94th minute Alexis Sanchez goal, but the Argentine defender has admitted that his men were fortunate to claim all three points.

“We have to improve a lot, because of our errors they tied the match,” he told reporters.

“We were lucky to win but it won’t always be this way. Everything will get more difficult in the future.

“What we can’t allow is have a 2-goal lead and have what happened happen.

“This doesn’t mean that we played poorly. There are just our errors and we have to minimise them.”
