Sevilla is three points behind Barcelona and five points behind leader Real Madrid, which has a game in hand.

"Oblak was there and made the saves, but he had four or five team mates throwing themselves at the ball and we couldn't find the space to score", he said. "But they have a fantastic team with a fantastic coach".

Barcelona won its fifth European title two years, beating Juventus 3-1 in Berlin, in coach Luis Enrique's first season with the club.
