Barcelona midfielder Busquets frustrated in Eibar win

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets was happy to overcome Eibar on Saturday.

Though they were forced to suffer for long periods, the Blaugrana came away from the Estadio Ipurura with a vital 2-0 victory.

"Eibar on Friday, would have been much better for us," Busquets stated, referring to their Champions League encounter with Chelsea.

"I don't know if the TV schedules would've allowed that."

Fabian Orellana's regrettable sending off changed the course of the match for the visitors who found more freedom to play down the left-hand channel in particular.

"They played the same way throughout the match, but Eibar didn't have many chances," he continued.

"Orellana's sending off definitely helped us."
