The Barcelona full-back felt the surface gave Atletico Madrid an advantage they capitalised on in their Champions League quarter-final tie
Barca lost the second leg 1-0 – Koke grabbing the only goal after five minutes – to go out of the tournament at the quarter-final stage 2-1 on aggregate.
Dani Alves' gripe followed on from Barca's pre-match concern about the length of the grass and their demands to have the surface watered at half-time.
The latter request was not granted and the Brazilian full-back felt that gave the home side an unfair advantage.
He told Marca: "It wasn't a matter of desire, they play with their weapons and leave the field very, very dry.
"They know that hurts our game because it slows the match down a lot. And for their plan, this was perfect because they knock the ball long, fight and counterattack."
