was defeated by

at Camp Nou in La Liga to make the situation worse for

Ronald Koeman

but the Catalans’ experienced midfielder

Sergio Busquets

thinks that they didn’t deserve the defeat.

"They got it right in the first part and we didn't,"

Busquets said to Barca TV post-match.

"We knew they were going to let us have the ball but they had speed with Rodrigo and Vinicius.

"In a team with these characteristics, when you lose the ball it is difficult to recover. And they have scored a goal in a kick, not in a play. That changes the game completely. I don't think we deserved to lose, but that's football.

"When there are games of these characteristics, the one who scores first has the advantage. In the second half, we had possession and control, but we had not made clear chances."

Although Busquets doesn’t think that his side deserved to experience their fourth consecutive defeat in El Clasico, he refused to blame the referee for it.

"Yes, I have seen [the controversial incidents], but it does not matter,"

Busquets continued.

"The referee has been good in general lines and I am not going to respond to the controversies.

"A small gap [in the table] is opening but I think we are growing little by little. Now we are going to recover Ousmane who will give us things in attack. We have to continue."
