Barcelona managed to advance to the next round of the King’s Cup, after eliminating the third league team, Cornella, with a score of 2: 0.

But this elimination did not come easily. The Catalans had to sweat for 120 minutes to win the match. The result after 90 minutes was equal, while in the extra time the goals of Dembele and Braithwaite were decisive.

After the match, Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman had criticism for his players

“I do not understand this, as there are normally enough players who can score a penalty. Maybe they are scared, I do not know. Some players have failed, and after all, if you score at least one of the penalties you can calm down,” he said.

The Dutchman said it is unacceptable for a club like Barcelona to lose two penalties.

“You can not miss two penalties as a Barcelona player. You are not showing any seriousness at all.” Koeman said.

Barcelona in La Liga has not done so well as it has 34 points after 18 rounds, ranking third and 10 points less than Atletico Madrid, which leads the table, and which has a less developed match.
