Barcelona played out a 0-0 draw against bottom-placed Huesca in La Liga and Barcelona star Arturo Vidal has blamed the upcoming Champions League tie against Manchester United for the same.
Barcelona won the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal against United 1-0 at Old Trafford with the reverse leg set to be played on Tuesday at the Camp Nou. Vidal was probably the most regular of starters after Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in the XI that was fielded against Huesca away.
The match ultimately finished goalless and the former Bayern Munich defender was quick to blame the upcoming second leg against Manchester United for the result. He added that the result was a fair one for both the sides.
“We were all thinking of Manchester United, those who were here and those who stayed at home,” he told beIN SPORTS.
“It was a very different team. We played those who have played less, and they did well. It was a fair draw for both teams.
“A lot of things happened because we played with a new system, with three at the back. The pitch was dry, and the ball didn’t run, among other things, but we didn’t lose, which was the most important thing.”
