Barcelona captain Iniesta: Losing to Real Madrid was painful

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta admits it's been a tough few weeks for the club.

Defeat in the Supercopa to Real Madrid arrived after losing Neymar to PSG for a world record €222m.

Iniesta reflected: "Real Madrid? It is a great team, where there are the best players in the world. But I insist that our goal is to win what we lost last season, the championship. The defeat in the Supercopa was painful because it could have been the first title we could have won. But they were effective.

"There are several ways to lose, but against Real Madrid, this always raises a lot of questions. The situation that has taken place in the last few weeks has not helped, but we have to find a good level and do things well."
