Barcelona’s Javier Mascherano feels Jordi Alba’s late winner in their 2-1 Champions League victory over Celtic on Tuesday was deserved.

The Catalans created numerous chances against the Scottish champions, who had gone ahead thanks to a Georgios Samaras strike, but the hosts were unable to seal victory until the 94th minute.

“I think justice was served, we had 11 or 12 shots on goal to only one of theirs. Justice was served,” Mascherano told Barca’s official website.

“The team doesn’t get tired of pushing forward, we could have given up but we kept on trying up until the end.

“This season is teaching us that a match isn’t over until the final whistle, this is not the first time that this has happened to us.

“We had no problems in defence, they didn’t create any chances. I think we put in a good performance.”

Barcelona sit on top of Group G with nine points from three games.
