Sergio Busquets feels Barcelona did not deserve to lose Sunday's Clasico to Real Madrid after going down 2-1 at Camp Nou.

Goals from David Alaba and Lucas Vazquez wrapped up the three points for Madrid, with Sergio Aguero's first Barça goal proving nothing more than a consolation.

Busquets conceded that Madrid were better in both boxes but feels Barça did not deserve to lose the game.

"It was too much of a punishment based on the merits of each team," Busquets said. "They got it right in the first hald and then they've waited for us on the counter-attack. We created a lot of chances.

"We knew they would give us the ball and look for the pace of Vinicius and Rodrygo. We controlled them coming out from the back but against a team like this if you lose position or concentration, they score, and that's what happened. We also had chances with Dest and Ansu, but scoring first boosts your chances in these games. The 0-1 is almost definitive."

Busquets added of the second half: "We continued to dominate, but we struggled to create clear chances. What happens in the box makes the difference and they were better. They scored that goal in the first half and made it count. It's a shame because we tried, but it wasn't to be."
