Barcelona captain Sergio Basquests believes that they have a team that can go on to win the UEFA Europa League.

Barca was sent to the competition after losing to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night with Benfica beating Dynamo Kyiv.

Speaking to Movistar after the game, the Spaniard admitted that they were in a bad situation and the fans didn’t deserve the type of results they were currently recording but will do everything to win the competition they now find themselves in.

“This isn’t what we wanted. The fans don’t deserve this but it’s the reality. We’re in a difficult situation and it hurts a lot. It’s a backward step for us. We have the team to win the Europa League,” Busquets said.

The last time Barça failed to advance to the last 16 of the Champions League was in the 2000/01 season.
