The Ukrainian coach believes that Barca are on another level, according to

Valeriy Gazzaev watched his Dynamo Kiev side put in a spirited performance at Camp Nou, only to come up short against Barcelona last night.

Kiev started brightly in their UEFA Champions League Group F encounter, but came undone thanks to a brilliant Lionel Messi goal, before Pedro sealed the win for the Blaugrana in the second half.

"I congratulate Barcelona on the victory. They play fantastic football, we could not do anything to stop them. They are very strong collectively and individually," Gazzaev is quoted assaying by AS.

"We wanted to play well and we did what we could, but nobody can stop Barcelona. We started well on the counterattack, and we had our chances, but they disappeared when we didn`t have the ball.

"It`s a great experience for our players and I hope it serves them well. You cannot criticise Barcelona`s players. Their level is very high."
