Barcelona need signings but not because of Supercopa loss, says Busquets

TOPSHOT- Real Madrid's Spanish midfielder Marco Asensio celebrates after scoring their fourth goal during the UEFA Champions League final football match between Juventus and Real Madrid

Gerard Pique knew Neymar had made a decision to leave Barcelona long before the Brazilian completed his world record 222 million euro ($261 million) move to Paris Saint-Germain, the Barcelona defender admitted on Saturday.

However, this time the equation is firmly against Barcelona.

Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona in the Camp Nou stadium on Sunday night means that in sporting terms Barcelona have to score at least three goals to have a chance of lifting the Supercup, but in other aspects it served to highlight the gulf between the two squads at the moment, reports Xinhua news agency.

'We have the game at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

"He has his reasons, I don't know if they are economic or to be the best in the world at a different team, but in the end I don't think we should judge him", said Pique.

Stargel said it's time for the university, and others, to change policy. That means "we're getting into some new waters".

Madrid are potentially the most risky side in Europe and have developed the idea to kill games through midfield domination. "We'll try to be solid and compact and take control of the tie although we know it will be hard", the midfielder added.

Madrid will be without Ronaldo for the return leg after the Portuguese was banned for five matches following a shove on referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea in Barcelona.

"With Neymar's departure evidently the team lost an attacking level, because you realise the footballer that is Neymar, there everyone will agree".

While new signing Paulinho offers help with depth - he perhaps does not belong to the "highest quality" spectrum. "It's not just about getting to the danger zone, but also being clinical".

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta was plagued by injury problems last season and rarely found top form.
