Barca boss Ronald Koeman feels that the Juventus clash was one of Barcelona’s best matches.
He is indeed very pleased with the squad after a 2-0 Champions League win. Ousmane Dembele scored early on in the game and Lionel Messi scored another through Ansu Fati’s penalty.
“We put in a great performance against a very strong team in Europe. We created many scoring opportunities, I am happy with the style of football and the character showed by my squad,” said Koeman.
“It was our best performance of the season, certainly the most complete. We controlled the midfield and Antoine Griezmann was a little unlucky, but he played well.
“The only thing we lacked was to sentence the game before. We have had very clear chances to score goals, but I also have to say in the case of Antoine he had bad luck.
“The most important thing is the work of the whole team. Pedri is particularly impressive for the character he showed in this situation, knowing his age.
“We had some difficulties in defence, but I knew that Frenkie de Jong could play back there. He already did it for Holland and gave a strong response today too.
“Winning here against a strong European side like Juve will certainly help us going forward.”
“The team has shown a lot of faith, confidence and a lot of personality against a strong team from Europe. It is the whole team that has stood out in this game.”
