Piqué: Barcelona not at best as a team and as a club

"In the last nine or ten years, it's the first time I've felt like they're better than us," Piqué told Esport 3. "We have to look to turn that around.

"We know we're not in our best shape at the moment. Not just as a team, but also as a club. We have to stick together and move forward. There's a long way to go [in the season] - it has only just started.

"We have to face up to defeat, congratulate them and look to improve."
