Barcelona's players were delighted with their 4-0 rout of Real Zaragoza.

Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi netted in the first half to put Barca on course for the win and second-half strikes from Carles Puyol and David Villa completed the scoring.

"These three points are very important. Games like these can become complication but today we played well. Now we have to concentrate on Milan," said Pique.

"It's normal that teams that come to at the Camp Nou play defensively and try to counterattack."

Xavi added: "After 10 or 15 days without competing, it's hard. The team played a great match.

"We feel really good physically, we pressured high... in general terms we did a good job."
