In his post-match interview, Zurutuza spoke about the win and the vital three points over the former league leaders.

“Playing against Barcelona is always difficult.  We played how we wanted and showed it.

“We beat them in scoring chances.  In the first half they only had two shots and we scored a goal.  We had more shots.

“My goal? I saw a gap in defense.  Griezmann saw me and everything worked out.”

Zurutuza is happy for the win but doesn’t consider it revenge from the Copa del Rey.

“Whatever happened in the Copa del Rey is in the past, but La Liga is a different story. We thoroughly prepared for this match and we went out fighting.”
