The FC Barcelona fell of the most cruel way against the Athletic Club in the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey. The 'lions' knew to suffer and hold the 0-0, in spite of the Barcelona arrivals, and in the discount took advantage of one of his poquísimas opportunities of goal to mark the so much of the victory. The barcelonistas did not have capacity of reaction and were deleted of the Glass with more surprises of the history of the competition.

After the meeting, Jordi Alba was one of the a lot of protagonists that spoke by part of the Barça. The left-handed side was to title in front of the bilbaínos and tried it everything from his left band, but this time could not connect with Leo Messi to manufacture any of his goals marks of the house. The one of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat left clear that is very proud of the work of the team by the game made. According to the international Spanish, only was missing the goal.

"We have had occasions very clear, but with a his arrival in the second part has come the goal. I am very proud of the team and know that this is the way that it is necessary to follow. We have done a party defensivamente very good and in attack have had occasions. Very happy by the game, but pity the result", signalled, trying be positive by the good level showed, in spite of the defeat.

The carrilero also referred to the controversy that there has been these last days by the statements of Érica Abidal. The French loaded against the players of the Barça to explain the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde and this carried to a reaction of Leo Messi to defend to him and to all the changing room. At the end, Josep Maria Bartomeu calmed the spirits, but from the staff seems that there is an evident rejection generalised to the statements of the technical secretary.

"Those that are giving the expensive are the players and the technical body. Already they throw us quite a lot of shit from out, so that us the one who have to throw we from inside. Abidal Is not a person of out. It has been player and knows what there is in a changing room. What have to do is to help us between all", commented, annoying by it sucedido with the ex footballer Frenchman.

It loaded against the VAR by the penalti to Of Jong

The most controversial action of the party was a possible penalti no signalled to Frenkie of Jong​ by push of Ander Layer. The referee saw it very clear and decided not signalling at all, while in the VAR neither warned him. Alba complained on the use of the VAR in this type of played. "In the field did not think that it was penalti, but if there is a person in the VAR has to see it clearly. If no, it does not serve of at all. I do not know as it works the VAR, but have to improve clearly. They are decisions very clear, is a pity", affirmed.

This maximum penalty to the Dutch midfield player could have it changed all, since the culés, to convert it, could have advanced 0-1. With a favourable result and with the Athletic forced to go out to look for further up to the barcelonistas, perhaps the ones of Quique Setién would have sentenced the eliminatory before the Basques had odido equalise the result. The VAR decided that the played was "grey" and prevailed the decision of the referee, that thought that it was not sufficient as to signal penalti.
