Barcelona defender Eric Garcia: Eintracht Frankfurt pressing was intense

Barcelona defender Eric Garcia insists they can be pleased after their 1-1 draw at Europa League opponents Eintracht Frankfurt.

Ferran Torres struck as the quarterfinal first-leg finished 1-1 in Germany.

Garcia said, "Given how Frankfurt pressed us this isn't a bad result by any means. They started much faster, more intensely than we did but we reacted properly after their goal.

"Obviously we don't leave here fully content. We came to win. But we've left the tie in the balance. Xavi warned us that the big Bundesliga teams often come here and lose.

"Frankfurt's intensity of pressing took us aback slightly. We are a team that is hungry and incredibly ambitious, so when we come out next week for the deciding part of the tie we need to play with the necessary energy and intention."
