Alba: La Liga title less glamorous with Madrid so far behind

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has admitted that he will have to improve his behavior on the pitch after throwing the ball in Arjen Robben's face in his side's 4-0 Champions League loss against Bayern Munich last week.

The Spain international threw the ball at the Dutch attacker in frustration as his side lost by four goals at the Allianz Arena in the first leg of their semifinal tie and was consequently handed a yellow card for his action, which means he misses the return game.

"I know that I have to improve in certain areas," the wing-back was quoted as saying by Marca when questioned about the incident with Robben. "Unfortunately, I will not be able to play in Wednesday's match against Bayern.

"However, I trust my team-mates to stage a comeback at Camp Nou."
