The midfielder says Vinicius' goal completely took the wind out of Barcelona
FC Barcelona were dealt a blow in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals. Real Madrid stormed the Spotify Camp Nou and qualified for the final of the tournament after a game in which, according to Sergi Roberto, Vinicius' late first-half goal was decisive as Los Blancos went on to win 4-0 (4-1).
"The goal at the end of the first half killed us," Roberto said. "We didn't deserve it, we had created many more chances ourselves. After the second goal, in the second half, we weren't able to play our game."
The midfielder insisted on Barça's "good first half" and did not want to forget the fans, who once again filled the Camp Nou. "It was a shame, we wanted to compete for the two titles we had left."
Roberto, finally, made it clear that he is "sure" that the league will not slip away despite the emotional blow. "We're 12 points ahead, I'm sure that this defeat won't affect us in the league. We have to keep going."
