Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic have critisized Barcelona’s recent form after the club’s 1 – 1 draw with Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Busquets will be out of the second leg, already having three yellow cards in the Champions League. Arturo Vidal will also miss the clash, with the player earning two yellow cards for fouling and clashing with Mario Rui.

When speaking about the game and the team form, Busquets said per Sport: “We had Arturo’s red card, I hope Pique’s thing is nothing. We’ll take [the second leg] on with what we are. We’re a small squad, unfortunately the planning was like this. We are a small squad; we don’t have players of this profile to attack. We have to reinvent ourselves.”

Rakitic also shared his thoughts, admitting Barcelona’s squad is lack of depth per Marca“Yes, but this was already known to those responsible. The solution is what it is. Those of us who are here are going to join forces because we have a very important game in the return [leg].”
