The Barcelona defender spoke about the controversial decisions in the Inter game

Barcelona defender Eric Garcia was pissed off after the defeat to Inter Milan and questioned the decision to rule out Pedri's second-half equaliser.

Barça were beaten 1-0 in Milan on Tuesday to leave them third in Group C with three points with three games to play, trailing Bayern Munich (nine points) and Inter (six points).

"We're pissed off with the result," Garcia told Movistar. "We managed the game well at the start, getting wide into one on one situations.

"The goal hurts, just before the break when things seemed in control. In the second half, it was just them defending and us trying to attack... 

"The goal they disallow... I don't know exactly. It has been explained to us that if the player that touches the ball with his hand, scores, the goal doesn't count. But if it touches another player's hand involuntarily, it's a goal. And I think it hits Ansu's (hand) off a touch from Onana."

As well as Pedri's goal being disallowed for Ansu's unintentional handball, Barça were also denied a late penalty for a Denzel Dumfries handball.

"The Dumfries handball... I don't know. But we can't change anything now," Garcia added.
