The midfielder was replaced by Xavi at minute 88
Andrés Iniesta highlighted the merit to win one more match in La Liga, this Saturday. Barça players leave Power8Stadium with three more points after winning against Espanyol by 0-2. "Derbys are intense, you can't breath in any move, even with 10 players we kept controling and we played a great match," he said to Canal+
The player from Fuentealbilla kept his speech of going from match to match, and he is already thinking about next challenge: "Next Tuesday we play against Getafe in a very complicated match and the game at Cordoba's stadium won't be easy," said the midfielder.
Regarding Jordi Alba's sent off, Iniesta thinks that Mateu Lahoz showed the red card to the full-back "for protesting non-stop," and he thanked the love that Espanyol's supporters always receive them.
At last, about the Champions League semifinals against Bayern Munich, Iniesta didn't want to say a thing and he claimed that "all three rivals that we could face were difficult to beat."
