Post Match Comments: AS Roma vs FC Barcelona

Luis Suárez: "It was a clear penalty, It’s always up to the referee if he blows for it or not but the images are there. And then they say that I simulate these actions.”

Luis Suárez: “We were surprised by two actions: the goal [by Florenzi], but above all by the injury to Rafinha. We were affected by that, but it should not be an excuse.

Luis Suárez: "We have to be calm. It was a good game. We had possession and created chances to score more goals. Later [in the game] they dropped back a bit as we tried to find another goal, but it wasn’t possible. We know how Italian teams are, it’s difficult to break their defenses down.“

Luis Enrique: “We controlled the game and, for me, the result could have been different. I think we played a good game, in which we created many chances, considering what it costs to confront a rival who closes his goal. There are always things to improve, but we had one game and deserved to win.”

Luis Enrique: “Except for the result, I am satisfied with the work of the players because we had played to score until the last minute and that, in Europe is very difficult. We had done everything that had to be done to win the match, but they had been more effective”

Luis Enrique: “Rafinha? Undoubtedly, this has been the most unpleasant news of the night. I think that has also affected the pace of the game. We expect the results tomorrow, but it looks bad and this information is very sad for us.”

Luis Enrique: “Barcelona not getting a penalty? Don’t think that’s news anymore…”

Luis Enrique: “Roma’s goal is my fault, we tell our keepers to play like that. I guess they won’t score another one like this against us.”

Sergi Roberto: “The team had been superior during the 90 minutes. We had bad luck with their goal because those are one in 50. We worked hard, it is always best to start with a victory, but today there could not be one.”

Sergi Roberto: “We played to help advance the counter because it is more if we attack the rivals. We are confident that this is the way to play and we were just unlucky.”

Sergi Roberto: "Rafinha told us that he noticed something with his knee, but we know nothing more. Hopefully, the tests will be positive and he can return as soon as possible.”

Sergi Roberto: “I play where the coach wants me to play — defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder, fullback…”

Mathieu: “We deserved the three points, but this is football. They scored an incredible goal. We played really good tonight.”
