"In a group with these attributes, when you lose the ball it is hard to recuperate. What's more, they have scored an objective in a kick, not in a play. That changes the game. I don't think we had the right to lose, yet that is football. 

"When there are rounds of these attributes, the person who scores initially enjoys the benefit. In the subsequent half, we had ownership and control, yet we had not clarified possibilities." 

Busquets wouldn't fault the official for the outcome and demanded that Barca stay positive notwithstanding being five focuses behind the best three.
