The Brazilians lost 3-1 against the LaLiga champions in the Nelson Mandela Centenary Cup played on Wednesday evening at FNB Stadium.
Mosimane, who was left impressed with his team’s performance against Barcelona despite their 3-1 loss, says there were lessons learnt by his charges from the game.
“You don’t easily find the ball, and they play easy with one touch, whereas we have one or two touches, and when you sometimes try one touch we are losing a few balls, you know. But when we play home, we are the ones with 70% ball position. We are the aggressors,” Mosimane told the media after the game.
“Tonight was a different story, and I saw them a little bit in the last 10 minutes they parked a minibus, you know because we were coming. Yeah, a small one, a quantum. So, I was happy to see them parking the bus a little bit. So, I’m happy with the team, it’s good,” added the coach.
