We had never been eliminated from the first round in the Copa Del Rey. We are deeply saddened from bot being able to move ahead”, said Creus.
When asked if this results affects the status of Xavi Pascual in the club, he simply commented on how new everyone in Barcelona is in this kind of situation. “We have not faced something like that in the last six or seven years. Now we have to focus on Euroleague at once”.
