The Barça coach appreciated Griezmann’s performance against Villarreal, but refuses to put this in the tactical unit’s account: “In the past he had an extraordinary intervention, but I would not simply associate this achievement with the fact that he played more in the shoulder than on the side. He has the quality and ability to show his level. The other day, it was an unusual moment of inspiration from the three who played inside. We should also highlight the contribution of Sergi Roberto, which made them shine more easily“.

Quique Setien talked about the importance of the Espanyol derby: “The reality is this, all derbys have nothing to do with the dynamics of the teams and the classification. It’s about doing your best and focusing on winning in this game. It is a huge match for many players. There will be excitement. When it comes to sports, the situation for both is not the same, but there is always uncertainty. Everyone will do their best. “
