Valverde accepts criticism after Barcelona held by Slavia Prague

Valverde Obviamente cuando pierdes hay más presión

Lionel Messi almost won the game for the Spanish side with an unbelievable solo run in the first half as he went from midfield all the way to the top of the box, firing a lovely shot off the crossbar.

The match was the first time Barcelona failed to score at home in any competition since February 2018. Ousmane Dembele was whistled when he was taken off on the hour mark and even louder whistles greeted the full-time whistle.

"Playing like this it's hard to see us winning the Champions League", said Barca defender Gerard Pique.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen has conceded just 11 goals in his 26 Champions League appearances for Barcelona at the Nou Camp, keeping 15 clean sheets and never conceding more than a single goal in a game.

"Everyone has their own opinion".

"I've been at Barca for many years and when people want things to go better than they are then there's criticism", said the centre-back, according to UEFA's website.


The La Liga champions face Borussia Dortmund at home in their next Champions League game on Wednesday, 27 November (20:00 GMT), while Slavia host Inter Milan at the same time.

"We [the players] are trying to resolve these situations as quickly as possible".

Moments later, Kolar was on hand to keep out a Gerard Pique header with another acrobatic save. I think we are in a good position.

Olayinka played the entire duration of the game as the Czech champions held Barcelona at Camp Nou to pick only their second point in the group F. We're not playing as well as we expect. We can improve the play and the results but things aren't that bad.

The draw leaves Barca with eight points from their four group games, which have not assured their place in the knockout stage.

Barca's draw left Ernesto Valverde's side without a win in their last two matches, and they look set to be without Alba for Saturday's LaLiga match against struggling Celta Vigo.
