Barcelona fullback Dani Alves has declared that there is no need to panic after their shock defeat to Hercules.
The reigning champions were completely outplayed by the Liga minnows, but the Brazilian international insists it was a performance they needed to get out of their system.
“We had a bad day, and when you have a bad day you do not win,” said Alves. “But it is better to lose now than in the final stretch.
“Hopefully the points we have lost now, we do not need them. We must have peace of mind to react when things do not go our way.
“We must not get angry and desperate.
“We are still this year’s most successful club.”
