Atletico Madrid 1 Barcelona 1 - Valverde`s Views

Despite seeing Barcelona`s 100% start to the season end with the 1-1 draw, away to Atletico Madrid, Ernesto Valverde was in good spirits after the game.

Valverde, conducting his post-match media conference, had this to say about the performance and the result,

'It was a good dinner for everyone, because there was a great show.

'I said that we were going to adapt and we did adapt. I have a positive feeling from the game.

"We must value a point against a great rival who had taken the lead, Atletico normally manage their lead very well.'

Considering the circumstances and in front of a hostile crowd it was a good point won.

Continuing, Valverde had a few words to say about Leo Messi who, for once, didn`t get on the score-sheet.

Valverde spoke about the fact Messi was a little below his best after his recent exertions, especially with Argentina in midweek, further adding,

'It's true that Leo had some wear and tear because of the tension of the matches he has had to play, but we know that he always responds in any situation.

'He gave us a lot of effort and it was clear that when he got the ball, something good could happen for us.'

It`s back to the Champions League in midweek, bring it on.
