Guardiola: "We did everything to win"

Roger Bogunyà

Josep Guardiola felt that his FC Barcelona side did enough to claim all three points from their Champions League encounter in Kazan after having to settle for a 1-1 draw against Rubin.

“The team attacked well and did everything to win,” he said. “I am pleased with the players. We did nothing wrong and only needed to just put one of our chances away. I felt that we created enough opportunities to win.”

Defensive outlook

Rubin and Barça both scored from the penalti spot and Guardiola felt that his team found it difficult against a side that played with six defenders. “They played well defensively,” he added.

Chelsea and Inter

Barça also drew in Kazan last season in a game that also saw them create enough chances to win.

Rubin's stance reminded Guardiola of the approach of opponents such as Chelsea and Inter in the last two Champions League semi finals that Barça played in as the defensive systems were set up to stifle his team.
