- The Barça central defender was sure to fight in the second leg to get the pass
- Regarding the match, he commented that “we went for the goal and in the second half we improved and played very good football”.
FC Barcelona central defender Eric Garcia was unsatisfied after the goalless game at home against Galatasaray but made a declaration of intent: “We’ll go there with everything, learning our lesson”. The defender pointed out that “in the first half we weren’t good at pressing and in the break, we adjusted it. Then we went for the goal but it didn’t come, although we played very good football in the second half”.
Eric acknowledged that “any rival can stand up to you” and wanted to “continue the good dynamics”.
Pedri, for his part, also referred to “the lack of pressure in the first half” as a diagnosis of the team’s problem. “We have to try to score many more goals and it hasn’t been possible.
We didn’t do well in attack, we lacked rhythm with the ball, we lacked rhythm and looked for free space”. Asked about the constant comparisons with Andrés Iniesta, Pedri said that “I try to avoid that and I prefer to be what I have to do I still have a lot to improve and learn from those who have been here the longest, like Busi, who is a star and I want to learn a lot from them”.
