It is not the week of FC Barcelona: midweek it had to swallow a blazing 1-4 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain, Sunday at home, 1-1 was played against PhD student Cádiz. That result came harder to Koeman than the loss in the Champions League.
Primera División-leader Atlético Madrid is on the road, but Barcelona has not been able to benefit from it: La Liga‘s number three remains at eight points from Atlético and five from Real Madrid, which has played one more match. “You see that there is not one team that is unbeatable, that no one is going to win every game. We are still getting plenty of new opportunities, but we have let two very important points slip through the fingers”, Koeman is bummed during the press conference.
“I am very disappointed. Even more than after the game against PSG. Because we really could have filled the gap,” says Koeman, who saw things go wrong in the extra time, after the guests were given a penalty. “And that while in ninety minutes we’ve had hardly any problems.”
