“It’ll be nothing like the game in Switzerland”

Berta Brau

Andrés Iniesta says Barça has to be very careful in tomorrow’s game against Basel. “They’ll be coming with a different mindset,” he argued, “as they have the chance to get at least a point.”

Andrés Iniesta took questions from the media on the day before Barça’s Champions League group stage match-up with Basel. “It’ll be nothing like the game in Switzerland,” says the midfielder. “They’ll be coming with a different mindset as they have the chance to get at least a point.”

Lining up classification

“We have to be very careful with this game, as it’s a chance to line up classification for the knock-out rounds,” he added. However, he doesn’t think Basel will be able to spring a surprise due to the Barça’s team approach: “All of us are really involved in each game.”

On a roll

Belief in the team

Constant pressure

“You’re always under pressure,” Iniesta argued, “but we’re ready to be on top. We want to keep our good run going with the humility we’ve shown up until now.”

“All games are tough”
“Games against the big sides in the League do perhaps have some extra motivational spice,” says Iniesta. “But at the end of the day it’s just another three points.” For the midfielder all games are tough, especially away from home, and he says that the Barça players are determined to take each game as it comes.
