After the away game, Ronald Koeman complained against Alavés about the return of his own team. It became 1-1 and FC Barcelona left out several good opportunities in the second half to make the 1-2.
“ We have to score more often, just like Wednesday. Were doing everything right. Its not about the character of the team, its about the return. If you create so many good opportunities and only score once, thats not good,” says FC Barcelona trainer, who won 2-0 at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday.
“ I dont know if it wasnt fair, because were giving a big gift to Alavés ourselves.” Koeman referred to goalkeeper Neto, who was due to the 1-0 of the home team with a clumsy action.
Koeman switched three times in the rest, and that had an effect. “I was not happy with the first half and Clément Lenglet and Sergio Busquets had a yellow card in their pocket,” Koeman said the intervention. “In the second half it was much better and we had a faster pace.”
Frenkie de Jong
Frenkie de Jong competed the whole game. He still seemed to set a liberating goal with a good pass, but it turned out to be offside.
“ There were situations that werent in our favor, like a penalty we didnt get. We should have won this,” says De Jong. “In the second half, we raised the pressure and had a lot of chances. We were just a little unhappy.”
