Barcelona didn’t kill the game

Ronald Koeman believes his Barcelona side lacked the ruthlessness away at Juventus on Wednesday night. The Catalans left Turin with a 2-0 win, but they could have had more goals if they were more clinical. Koeman has been seen to be visibly annoyed late when Ansu Fati chose to pass instead of shooting when in on goal, and he thinks his side missed out on a bit of luck in the final third. “We didn’t kill the game,” Koeman said after the game. “We had clear chances. But Antoine Griezmann had back luck; his shots couldn’t have been much better. It’s always important to create chances. We were a superior team; we had depth and a man free in the middle. It was a fair result.” Barcelona travelled to Italy in light on options at centre-back and with Ronald Araujo starting and then leaving injured, their fears have only worsened.

“We have known since the start of the season that we are limited in the centre-back,” added Koeman. “If we are missing anyone, we are in trouble. Frenkie de Jong played there in Holland, and he did very well.” It was an eventful week at Barcelona after Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned as president, but the coach insists that he is focused only on the football. “I think we should only think about the sports side,” said Koeman. “The team was good, and it doesn’t affect me. It doesn’t bother me. We put our energy into football. It’s not in our hands.”
