Dutt searches for Barcelona solace

Bayer 04 Leverkusen are 3-1 down as they visit FC Barcelona but boss Robin Dutt knows the Camp Nou side are not invincible, telling UEFA.com: "Every once in a while they lose."

Bayer 04 Leverkusen trail FC Barcelona 3-1 going into the Camp Nou leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie, yet the German team's coach Robin Dutt believes that even the defining side of their era are not invulnerable. "The way they pass the ball is second to none," he told UEFA.com. "But every once in a while they draw a match, every once in a while they lose." If Leverkusen fail to achieve a miracle in Spain, then it will not be for want of effort. "This is a very young team that tries to play with a lot of passion," explained the 47-year-old. "They are always moving and are prepared to run a lot."
