Alba reveals Barca "struggled" to win against Elche

Thu 25 February 2021 | 11:51

Jordi Alba revealed Barca were outstanding in their 3-0 league victory against Elche on Wednesday but emphasized the importance of the end result given the far worse plays that come before it.

The team experienced a 4-1 defeat against PSG in the Champions League last Tuesday before the tie against Cadiz over the weekend.

Alba

 

scored the third goal for Barcelona against Elche. 

The triumph carried them to 3rd place in La Liga, behind Real Madrid and leaders Atletico Madrid.

"This will help our confidence a lot,"

Alba

 

admitted.

"The draw (with Cadiz) was a huge blow to the whole team and showed that if we are not at our 100% best we find it very hard to win. We struggled on Sunday and in the first half here too but we were better in the second and the goals arrived."

Barcelona

 

will first play against Sevilla in La Liga, and then in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final.

Sevilla stand just two points behind Barca in the La Liga table.
