Iniesta looking for defensive improvement

18 November 2012 15:18

Andres Iniesta believes Barcelona will have to improve in defence if they are to have a successful campaign and challenge for major honours.

The Barca midfielder was speaking after his team's 3-1 win at home against Real Zaragoza on Saturday evening and noted that there have been a number of mistakes at the back so far this season.

"Football is a game between two teams, and our opponents come to play. We need to correct our errors so we don't concede as many goals, and this is completely achievable," the midfielder told Sport.es.

"There were times when Zaragoza made us run, they wanted to have the ball and that wears you out. I think that we played out a very complete game."

Iniesta also heaped praise on team-mate Lionel Messi, who he believes is the reason why Barcelona are at the top of La Liga with 11 wins out of 12 games.

"It's what we're used to. Leo makes a difference because he is a unique player. I hope his form and the team's continues," he said.
