Sergio Busquets believes he and Javier Mascherano can play in the same Barcelona midfield.

The pair impressed in their Champions League defeat of Copenhagen.

Busquets admitted he wished he could play alongside the Argentine more often.

“It was a different system in this match, because yesterday I played with Mascherano, and in theory we both play in the same position, but we can play together as we noted yesterday," said Busquets. "He is a pleasure to play alongside.

“He had a very good game. I think he it was his most developed performance so far. He is a very good player who will give a lot to the team.”
