Pique: Barca Will Net Penalties When It Matters

Gerard Pique is adamant his Barcelona teammates will score their penalties when they truly matter, after Lionel Messi failed to convert on Saturday.
 
 
Barcelona hammered Getafe 6-0 in La Liga to bolster their lead at the top of the standings, with Messi's saved penalty the only low point for the Catalans.
 
The saved spot-kick was Messi's fourth miss in seven penalties, but Pique believes the team will bag them in the big games.
 
"In important games, when things are on the line and we have to score them, we will score them."
 
"We always try to play at our best," Pique said. "We started very well today, in the first 20-25 minutes we had some great moments. We are getting closer all the time to what we want to achieve. We try and do the best possible.
 
"We've been many years together, many important players. We understand each other well, can play passes sometimes without looking, but we want to keep improving and at end of the season to win something."
