Without Lionel Messi, Everything Is More Complicated - Barcelona Defender Gerard Pique

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has bemoaned the absence of Lionel Messi after the champions laboured to a 1-0 defeat of Sporting Gijon at the Camp Nou on Wednesday evening.

As expected, the Blaugrana enjoyed the majority of possession, but had to rely on a David Villa goal at the beginning of the second half to seal the points.

The story is too old to be commented.
