Koeman rues missed opportunity to beat Cadiz

Barcelona missed a good opportunity to get three points against Cadiz and head coach Ronald Koeman was not a happy man.

“It’s disappointing, these kind of games have to be won and we didn’t do it,” Koeman lamented afterwards.

“It’s a big opportunity lost after the Atletico Madrid defeat. It’s a big disappointment.

“I’m very disappointed, more so than last Tuesday [when Barcelona lost to Paris Saint-Germain].

“We couldn’t let the two points slip away. We are disappointed.

“I don’t like to blame the players individually. We weren’t up to the task in attack, and we have to defend differently. In terms of quality, we should have won.”

“The problem is that the scoreline was very close and they could equalise at any moment, as happened,” the Dutchman accepted.

“You leave them the chance to equalise in the last few minutes. If you don’t kill the game and you don’t score the second, they can always score…

“We struggled to create chances because they were deep and there was no space. We lacked freshness up front.

“We have to analyse what happened in the penalty [Cadiz won late on], the whole play, to see how it happened.”
