Javier Mascherano has said that he nor any of his Barcelona teammates have an excuse for their demoralising 4-1 defeat at Celta Vigo on Wednesday night.
"It always hurts to lose for Barca. The best thing is to think of Saturday and to look carefully at last season," he told AS.
"It's part their credit and our failure. There are no excuses. They deserved to win and worked well. The most worrying thing is we feel overwhelmed. That's the worst."
Luis Enrique's side will look to bounce back when they welcome Liga new boys Las Palmas to Camp Nou on Saturday.
