After the game, Gerard Pique said that he wanted to thank the Barcelona fans, as they not only supported the team until the end against Juventus, but even some stayed after the whistle blew to support the team.

The Barca defender said the following after the game: – The supporters singing like that tonight deserves to be highlighte.

– It’s one of the few times I’ve seen the Camp Nou like this after a defeat. It fills me with pride and makes me emotional to see that despite having lost.

He also had praise for Juventus, who he thought were the better side: – They’re a great team and were the better team over the tie. I wish them the best until the final, I believe they can win it.

– We played our game, and at the start created chances, but they built a mountain. It was a result that was very difficult to turn around and it wasn’t to be. They are Italians and know how to defend well, they are specialists in this. They came to play their football and they succeeded.
