Michael Owen suggested that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez were to blame after Roma completed an incredible comeback against Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final.

Barca travelled to Italy with a 4-1 lead from the first leg but goals from Edin Dzeko, Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas helped Roma complete an improbable turnaround and advance to the semifinals on away goals.

"Valverde's conservatism took its toll", claimed paper Marca, criticizing the trainer not fluent his team at league games despite using the Spanish name nearly wrapped up, leading to his players experiencing overexertion. "I'd be lying if I said that this could help us in some way in the future, because previous year we lost in a similar manner".

The Spanish club thrived in almost every competition it played over the last few years but has failed to succeed recently in the top European club competition. Busquets was even more scathing than Iniesta in his criticism of the performance. Real Madrid were the first when they defeated Barca 3-1 in the Spanish Super Cup back in August.

Another big clash in the battle for European qualification comes at the Sanchez-Pizjuan on Saturday, with Villarreal looking to avenge their 3-2 defeat earlier to the season by Sevilla in what was one of LaLiga's games of the season so far.

Iniesta signed a "lifetime contract" with Barça as recently October, but it is increasingly expected that he will end his 22-year association with the club at the end of the season.

Guardiola seeks flawless game against Liverpool
It's more than 90 minutes but we showed many times, in a short period we can create chances and you have to be clinical. I like to watch my team, the way we play this season and the way we played in the first half against United.

"For us, it's about getting players into the first team".

"That is a possibility and for that reason it hurts even more", the Barca skipper said, as per Sky Sports.

"We always try to give the maximum but we are knocked out and now feel everyone's pain".

"But when he doesn't perform the rest of the players, who are very good, they also don't perform".

Leaders Barça will look to set a new all-time LaLiga record of 39 consecutive games unbeaten when they host Valencia at the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon.
