Sergio Busquets spoke to Barça TV after Barcelona lost El Clásico at Camp Nou on Sunday.
The Spain international felt that the Blaugrana should not have ended up on the losing side.
“They got it right in the first half and we didn’t. We knew they were going to let us have the ball but they had speed with Rodrygo and Vinicius.
“In a team with these characteristics, when you lose the ball it is difficult to get it back. I don’t think we deserved to lose, but that’s football.
“In big games like these ones, the team who scores first has the advantage. In the second half, we had possession and control, but we didn’t make any clear chances.”
Barcelona remain positive
“I have seen [the controversial incidents], but it doesn’t matter. The referee has been good in general terms and I am not going to respond to the controversies,” Busquets added.
“A small gap [in the table] is opening but I think we are growing little by little. Now we are going have Ousmane [Dembélé] back. He will give us more in attack. We have to keep going.”
