Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique has revealed why the Spanish La Liga champions may not win the UEFA Champions League this season.
Barcelona played a goalless draw against Slavia Prague in the UCL on Tuesday. They went into the game on the heels of a 3-1 loss to Levante in the Spanish La Liga.
Speaking after the match, Pique was quoted by Marca as saying: “We are not playing as we want, but in both La Liga and Champions League we are in a good situation in the table.
“The results are not bad, they could be better, but we must keep calm and improve. Playing at this level, it is difficult for us to win the Champions League. We have had other spells where we were not playing very well, for example under Luis Enrique and then we ended up doing the treble.”
Pique added: “Slavia tried to play a game that suited us. We have had chances, but the ball didn’t want to enter [the goal]. The results have not helped us out in these last few games, and when you chain two games together without winning at Barcelona, people want more as there are high demands.”
