Iniesta: Barcelona must keep putting pressure on Real Madrid
On the back of a hard-fought 2-1 win against Atletico Madrid, Andres Iniesta insisted that Barcelona cannot afford to drop more points if they want to successfully defend their LaLiga title.
The captain assured the triumph is a big boost to the team morale.
“Winning every match is mandatory whenever you are trailing in the standings,” Iniesta said.
“We must keep putting pressure on the leader.”
The 32-year-old admitted the Catalans were unable to play their best football, but gladly accepted the three points.
“This was a big win for us considering the opponent and the situation we were embroiled in,” he continued.
“No matter how well we played, what is important is the fact we won and our title hopes remain alive.”
Lastly, the Fuentealbilla native conceded that the midweek match against Bayer Leverkusen might have taken a toll on the hosts.
“It’s always tough to win [at Estadio Vicente Calderon]. and I think Atletico paid the price for their tremendous effort in the Champions League.”
