Gross frustrated with Stuttgart slip

Published: Wednesday 24 February 2010, 0.10CET
Christian Gross bemoaned VfB Stuttgart's failure to turn their fine first-half display into more than a 1-0 lead as FC Barcelona fought back to earn a 1-1 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg draw in Germany, saying: "I think we could have had another goal but things changed in the second half. They didn't create so many chances. It was a great first half but we couldn't keep it up for the second. Not many teams get a draw against Barcelona so this makes me happy."
