It is the first time in 45 games that Barca have failed to score in front of their fans since they drew 0-0 with Getafe on February 11, 2018. Ousmane Dembele was whistled when he was taken off on the hour mark and even louder whistles greeted the full-time whistle.

Pique added: "Slavia tried to play a game that suited us".

Clement Lenglet nearly conceded an early penalty when Marc-Andre ter Stegen pushed a pull-back into the defender's chest while Pique accepted his booking after being robbed of the ball by Peter Olayinka. And for one of the competition's biggest favorites, this is a key game, not only in terms of qualification for the Round of 16 but also to get some confidence back after a very bad result over the weekend.

"Everyone has their own opinion".

The La Liga title may not be enough to keep the Spaniard with fans determined to see their side lift the Champions League again.

"We [the players] are trying to resolve these situations as quickly as possible". I think we are in a good position. We're not playing as well as we expect.

"We'll try and sort things out, to improve, but it's time for a cold-blooded, calm-headed analysis".

Slavia were excellent value for their point, however, with the result leaving Barca still with work to do to progress from Group F.

"Right now it is hard to say if playing like this we can opt for the Champions League, but we have had sections in which we did not play as well, as the first section with Luis Enrique, which was later fixed", concluded his speech. "We have had other spells where we were not playing very well, for example under Luis Enrique and then we ended up doing the treble".

"The supporters have the right to express what they feel and we have to accept what they say", the French defender told reporters. "We're going to turn this around".
