The home side came from a goal down to rescue the points and the defender has said that Sevilla proved themselves to be top-class opposition.
"They are not just any team, they are great rivals and have a lot of quality," the Brazilian told Mundo Deportivo.
"Sevilla forced us to work hard to win the three points. It was a strange match, especially because of how cold it was, but in the end we managed to win."
The Catalan giants are currently top of La Liga.
