FC Barcelona kept their La Liga title hopes alive as they beat Cadiz in their last league match on Saturday. With this win, the difference between Real Madrid and Barcelona still remains eight points, as the Merengues were also able to win their match against Mallorca.

The Portuguese Joao Felix was the difference maker, as he scored the only goal of the match. This strike once again showed that the on-loan winger does not need too many minutes to shine, and can be a differential player when on song.

As SPORT has reported, Felix talked to the media after the match, and explained how he scored the goal, while also commenting on how he feels about the stadium in particular:

“I saw the ball up there, I tried it, and the goal came out… Two years ago I did a bicycle kick here, this field brings me luck.”

Felix also commented on how he wants to help the team whenever he can, and is working to be a starter for Xavi:

“We all work to be starters and play as much as possible. I try to do my best to help the team, when I’m on the field I try to show what I can do. We all work to be starters, I want to help, I know I can contribute good things.”

Barcelona were the clear favorites going into this match, but Cadiz were able to put up a strong fight against the Catalans. Thus, Felix was thankful for the three points obtained in this match:

“It was a great match on a field that is not easy at all. We are happy for the three points. We suffered a lot, we should have controlled the game more, but Cádiz is fighting for their life and the end of the season is like that.”

“We are happy after winning on a tough field. We wanted to secure the victory and keep a clean sheet. It was tough at the end, but we managed to pull through.”

Overall, the Portuguese international was quite happy with his performance, and was hopeful he can maintain his levels for the coming months as well:

“I’m happy to be back, it’s been a long time. It’s an opportunity to get some minutes and show that I’m feeling good. Let’s see if I can get some consistency and finish the season well.”
