Mascherano feeling better in Barcelona system
The former Liverpool star won praise from Barca coach Pep Guardiola for his display.
"Barcelona play in a very different way to the teams where I have been so far," said Mascherano. "I said recently that I was slowly picking up the concepts and found myself comfortable tonight.
"I felt great with Busquets. He is a very intelligent player, knows the team and it is very easy to play with him. "
