Jordi Alba said Barcelona won’t miss Gerard Pique and they cannot underestimate Roma in the Champions League.
It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT) and is the opening tie in Group E.
“So far no club has been able to win the Champions League two years in a row. That is extra motivation for us,” said Alba in a Press conference.
“The club always wants to win everything, but that mustn’t become an obsession. It’s difficult to repeat the Treble this year.”
