Playing the ball out from the back. "Playing in this way is an important strategy. We've also worked on alternative strategies and with Arturo Vidal we always had an outlet.

Whistles and applause from the Camp Nou. "The team is aware of things as they are but I'd like to feel today was a major step forward performance-wise. We have room to improve and we're far from tired and I see the team strong mentally too".
