Barcelona: Gerard Pique says players are not ‘robots’ after Deportivo defeat


Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says his team are not « robots » after they followed up their Champions League heroics by losing 2-1 to Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga.

Barca beat PSG 6-1 on Wednesday to win 6-5 on aggregate, scoring three goals in the final seven minutes.

« After a huge effort like on Wednesday, with all the adrenaline and excitement, it’s tougher to compete, » said Pique.

« We weren’t able to play our game the way we like. »

Barcelona, who were knocked off top by Real Madrid’s 2-1 win at Real Betis, were disappointing against struggling Deportivo.

Joselu gave Depor the lead, with Luis Suarez equalising before Alex Bergantinos’ headed winner.

« It’s tough to take because it was important to stay on the winning path, but it wasn’t to be, » said boss Luis Enrique.

« It wasn’t hard to come back to reality. Us professionals know how hard it is to attain each victory.

« We thought it would be a tough game because of everything that’s gone on. The last game can always play a role. »
