Iniesta: Not as bad as PSG

Andres Iniesta insists Barcelona “don’t feel as bad as we did in Paris” after their 3-0 loss to Juventus as “we’ll turn the tie around if we do things as we need to”.

Barca were left needing another comeback of gigantic proportions in the Champions League quarter-finals, having conceded just one goal less than they did at Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16, but Iniesta made it clear his side were capable of pulling it off.

“We did things badly, especially in the first half,” the midfielder said after the game.

“The Champions League punished us with their two goals, but something else was seen from us in the second half. We deserved to score, but it means little now.

“Juve are a good team, but when you don’t do things well, it penalises you a lot.

“Memories of Paris? We don’t feel as bad as we did in Paris, but we have another big mountain to climb.

“The comeback? If we do things as we need to, we’ll turn the tie around, otherwise it’ll be impossible.”
