"We showed we could play together at Champions League level," said Pique. "Rio and Nemanja are having a great season and are good centre backs. But it is good for us to show we can play in places such as Rome.
"The squad is strong and we are starting to show that it doesn't matter who is playing - the team is still playing well.
"It is important for us as a group to do that. You always want more and more. Hopefully I will get more games in the rest of the season."
