Barcelona’s match against Real Sociedad ended in a draw and Luiz Suarez’s believes it is a miracle they managed to walk away with a draw, given their disappointing performance.
Sociedad proved themselves to be the better side in the encounter, scoring first and dominating most of the match, but they were unable to maintain the lead courtesy of a Lionel Messi goal. Luiz Suraez, did not see the result as a good one, calling it their worst performance since his spell at the club.
“If I look at the result, it’s the most positive assessment I can give from this season,” he told Barca TV. “To finish 1-1 is almost a miracle. Winning would have been unfair and I have to congratulate Real.
“We couldn’t even string five passes together. Without the ball, we were disastrous.”
He continued in his media conference: “They pressed us with six players and we didn’t find the middle-range and long-range passes.
“We didn’t even win five per cent of the duels. If you don’t match up in this type of duel and you concede the advantage, there’s little you can do.
“In the second half we improved a little but nowhere near enough. We drew the game because of an isolated bit of play between Messi and Neymar, but little else.
“We don’t deserve to take a point back to Barcelona.”
“We have to start improving. We’ve produced the worst game of our era and we’ll certainly see a different Barca in the Classico,” he added.
“The battles will be important and they will be decisive. I’m sure that we will fight.”
