La Liga week 20: Betis Sevilla 1-1 FC Barcelona

Luis Suarez’s last minute equalizer saves a point for Barcelona as the Blaugrana trails Real Madrid with 4 points and a game in hands for Madrid. 

Barça coach, Luis Enrique comments:

“We rescued a point and I look at that as positive. The 1-1 result is positive for us as we pick up a point. They were the better side for 30 minutes in the second half, the first was more equal and we were able to salvage a point in the end.

In the first half we didn’t have too many problems and they didn’t really create too much but then neither did we. In the second half they pressured us high up the field and created chances. We found it difficult to bring the ball out from the back and they were the better side. We made a lot of mistakes and we were not at our normal level and that allowed our opponents to grow in confidence.

With the goal Betis sat back a bit more and that allowed us to get around their pressure to get more into their penalty area.”
