Barcelona must forget Roma nightmare – Sergio Busquets

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has urged his teammates to forget last year’s shock Champions League exit to Roma.

The Catalan giants crashed to a shock 3-0 defeat in the Italian capital last year at the quarter-final stage of the competition, and now face a tricky last 16 tie against Olympique Lyonnais.

“The way in which we went out hurt everyone but we can't obsess about it,” Busquets told reporters at his pre-match press conference, as cited by ESPN FC.

“We want to go as far as we can in this competition this season. Hopefully there's no [Roma] repeat. It is up to us to make sure it does not happen again.

“The statistics have not been good, but each game has to be analysed in isolation. The important thing is what we're doing in the Champions League this season.

“Our problem in recent years has been away from home, it's true, but we did well this season in a difficult group. I think that's what we have to focus on.”
