Alves has pointed out that even though they lost the supercopa to Athletic after losing 5-1 on aggregate, Barcelona have no excuse and brought their A-game
Barcelona tried to claw their way to the trophy, but the mountain was insurmountable after they lost 4-0 in the first leg.
A Messi goal before half time surged them forward, after which a Pique red saw them reduced to ten men and Athletic took advantage of that, with the equalizer and final nail coming after that.
The Brazilian defender Dani Alves has said he won’t make any excuse for his side.
“Perhaps we didn’t get enough things right in the two games. Perhaps we didn’t compete as hard we can,” Dani Alves told reporters.
“We paid the price for the European Super Cup match and didn’t have much time to prepare. There were all those things, but there is no place for excuses.”
