Roberto on Atleti victory: This is where leagues are won
- The versatile midfielder highlighted the importance of the 1-0 away win.
- He refused to name a particular player worthy of the Man of the Match award.
- Roberto praised the whole team for their performance in the crucial game.
"We suffered a bit but in games like this is where leagues are (won). There’s a long way to go and many teams who will be there until the end."
With Lionel Messi scoring the winner and Marc-Andre ter Stegen completing several stunning saves, it was difficult to name a Man of the Match against Atletico. Roberto didn't want to enter the discussion either.
The versatile midfielder continued as he praised the teamwork in the 1-0 win: "The whole team worked to win this game, with Marc (Ter Stegen) making some important saves, and Leo (Messi) deciding the game."
Barcelona beat Atletico 1-0 on Sunday night. Both teams had enough chances to open the scoring, however, there was a goalless draw until the 86th minute when Leo Messi received the ball after a one-touch pass from Luis Suarez and fired home.
