Piqué points to Barcelona anxiety

Gerard Piqué pointed to the first-half dismissial of FC Internazionale Milano midfielder Thiago Motta as a key factor in FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League exit, saying: "We were playing calmly and in the correct way in the first half until they went down to ten men. From that point we became too anxious to score. We're disappointed, but that's football, we have another final [away to Villarreal CF] on Saturday and we hope to win it."
