Barcelona defensive midfielder, Sergio Busquets admitted that they didn’t play their best game in a 4-1 win over Almeria on Sunday evening at the Camp Nou, but they were able to earn three points and move one point behind Real Madrid for the league lead, which was the most important.

Sergio BusquetsIn his post-match interview with Canal+, Busquets spoke about the match and the whistles from the crowd.

“We need to win again and move closer to the leaders, but we need to keep working because things are very even at the top of the table.

“There were good things and there are things that we must improve.  Now we have a little break and we’re going happy to the national team camp.  There were good things and not so good things.  It wasn’t our best game and we lacked a spark, but at least we’re still in the fight.

“We have to try and improve on set-pieces.  Every team has their own brand and ours is one without a lot of height and we suffer, it’s not our forte.”

Busquets went on to discuss the outcome of the Madrid Derby (2-2) and how they benefit.

“Clearly were interested in the league leaders tripping up (in the Madrid Derby) and now we’re one point away but we need to keep working .”

Busquets then responded to the whistles from the crowd.

“I don’t know if the whistles were from the game or something else.  It helps the team and I’ll chose to remember the applause.  Maybe there were a lot of Almeria fans in the crowd today.”
