The Barcelona suffered in Cornellà and did not attain to mark until the extention to finish winning by 0-2 with goals of Ousmane Dembélé and Martin Braithwaite. The group barcelonista had spare occasions to win in the first 90 minutes, but were very fallones and at the end almost pay it.

The Barça, in fact, failed two penaltis during the statutory time, something that for his technician is intolerable. "I do not understand because usually there is sufficient players that can mark the penaltis. They can be fear, but do not know it. They have failed several players and, especially, if you mark one of of the two penaltis reassure you. But they can not fail two penaltis being players of the Barça. It is not serious, it is necessary to win the party a lot before", aimed.

The one of Zaandam continued his criticism by the wrong maximum penalties and was very conclusive ensuring that Pjanic and Dembélé do not have excuse. "Neither there is so much pressure to put a penalti. There is not public. It is necessary to have the cold head and mark. And always it is possible to fail a penalti, but can not accept that they fail two. And therefore, the team has had to do a physical wear that is not normal in this type of parties", declared.

Besides, Koeman left clear that his team had to have won the party before by the occasions generated, although elogió to the Cornellà by his performance. "As I have said before, there was a lot that lose and little that win. The Cornellà has done a big party and his goalkeeper has been the best. It seems that it costs us mark again. We could have easier the party and they have done a big party. I understand why they won to the Athletic of Madrid. But we have to speak of why we have had to play 120 minutes again", said, criticising that his arrived to the extention again.
