NEWS | 27/02/2018 | Alberto Navarro (Barcelona) | PHOTOGRAPHER: Ángel Martínez"We put in a great performance in the first half and the second half was totally different", declared Llorente.
"The circumstances didn't work in our favour. We know that it's tough but we have to be professional. We have to keep on working, it's the only way".
"It's tough. There are seasons in which things go better than others, it's not a case of blaming anyone, we're all part of the team. Those of us who are out on the pitch win and lose together, but this is down to the group".
Llorente: "We went all out for the three points"
"We put in a great performance in the first half and the second half was totally different. They pressed us more and we went all out for the three points and a mistake in our defence saw them score".
"We’re not thinking about the points difference, we try to take things match by match. The team didn't lack intensity, we just failed to take our chances, we weren’t clinical and we must try to correct the defensive mistakes we made".
"These are things that the coach decides, he believes it’s the best for us and we have to adapt. We have created chances that didn’t go in, and in the end that goal has killed us. Those of us who play less have to take our chances and give 100% every time we go out on the field, and that's what I do every time I take to the pitch".
"The team is relaxed, we’ve been on a good run, including that victory against PSG. We’re going to give everything in the game this weekend and then think about the trip to Paris, where we’ll be looking to pick up an important victory".
