Pau Lopez: Barcelona the best in the world

Real Betis goalkeeper Pau Lopez believes Barcelona “are one of the best teams in the world, if not the best”, ahead of their league meeting on Sunday.

Los Verdiblancos edged out the Catalan giants 4-3 earlier in the season at the Camp Nou and the two sides now meet again in Seville this weekend.

“Barcelona are one of the best teams in the world, if not the best,” Lopez is cited as saying by El Mundo Deportivo.

“They are in a really good moment, they have great players and if we are to beat a team of that calibre we cannot afford to commit errors.

“The pressure on Quique Setien? In football when you lose games the Coach gets scrutinised, this is normal in football, but we do not pay attention to that.

“Qualifying for the Champions League? We do not talk about that in the dressing room and it would be absurd to talk about it at this stage.”
