As the right back and captain versus Viktoria Plzen, Roberto got the game underway. At halftime, Gerard Pique took his spot as a substitute.
“He [Roberto] is performing very well, I am very happy, a very important wildcard for the team, he can play in any position, without complaining,” Xavi said (via Mundo Deportivo).
“He has a little discomfort… Maybe he doesn’t travel to Cádiz but for the Champions League.”
