WE WERE UNLUCKY AGAINST BARCELONA'' - EMENIKE FEELS SPARTAK MOSCOW SHOULD HAVE PUNISHED THE CATALANS


Spartak Moscow striker Emmanuel Emenike has said Barcelona came very close to paying a big price for underrating his Russian club.
  
Spartak fell 3-2 to hosts Barcelona in a Champions League group game on Wednesday at the Camp Nou after they took a 2-1 lead late in the game. 

The Nigeria International said he was disappointed that he left Camp Nou empty handed as it was his dream to beat Barcelona right in front of their home fans.
“I said before the game that we will shock Barcelona, which we almost did. Let me say we lost the game because we were unlucky, we were not completely overran by Barcelona as we made them know we are equal to the task,” he said. 

“I am not satisfied with the result because my dream was not fulfilled. It was a victory I wanted, but I pleased with our confidence, self believe and composure on the pitch.

I am very sure Barcelona will be beaten in the return leg but Celtic are our next opponent, that’s our target now.” Emenike concluded
  
On his cross that was turned in by Dani Alves for an own goal, Emenike said he was happy with his contribution, but would have loved to have scored by himself.
