Despite the slap received at home last Tuesday in the Champions League, Barça coach Ronald Koeman is no more impressed than that by PSG.
A scathing 1-4, wiped clean in his Camp Nou lair, that’s what the FC Barcelona cashed this week in the knockout stages of the Champions League against PSG. A defeat a priori synonymous with the elimination of the Catalan club from the European scene – except unlikely remountada bis in three weeks at the Parc des Princes.
In the eyes of the Blaugrana coach, however, the fundamental difference between the two teams is not glaring. “It is difficult to say what we lack against the big teams, says the technician Batavian, who remembers that Barça also suffered a 0-3 against the Juve this season. They (the Parisians, note) were very efficient and that made the difference. I don’t think we can’t compete. We were close, we had our chances. I don’t see a team that is much better than the other. We can beat anyone, but we have to prove it in every game. “
“We have been bad”
Somewhat resigned to the continental design of his training, Koeman continues in front of the press, on the eve of a La Liga match against Cadiz: “The world does not stop after a defeat. We need to analyze our mistakes and make things better. The other day we were bad with the ball, we had too many ball losses and gave the opponent options on a counter attack. I hope we come out of this event stronger and win the game tomorrow. In the league, Barça can return to six lengths of Atlético de Madrid, the leader, in the event of Sunday success.
