He Barcelona of Ernesto Valverde He did not have his best game in the Santiago Bernabu, however the team of Lionel Messi and company took a strong victory by 3 to 0 against him Real Madrid to eliminate it from the semifinals of the Copa del Rey.
Later in a press conference, the coach of the group analyzed the game and was quite autocratic in spite of the euphoria of success for such a result against the usual rival:
– "They have been better in the first half and we have lacked offensive intent. We have not been able to do with the game, we have spent in certain spaces and it has been able to cost us some goal "
– "It has not been a round match, I have to admit it. Today we have made three goals here and we have not had so many occasions, other times it is back".
– "This is sometimes a bit random at the Champions League (before Lyon) we knock 25 times in the door and do not mark any one and say we were in a crisis."
– "(Luis) Surez is a scorer who is always there, is aggressive and ambitious, always looking for the goal".
– "The party of the saint has the same importance as before and We have to improve to win the sack here. The League is the competition we want to win everybody. "
– "The second time we have had a high level of success, in the first we have not been well. They have punished us with some against and our playing rhythm was not high, we lacked offensive intensity.Clear occasions have been theirs. We in the second part have come out more determined and we have had more stuck. Knowing that we can do against you, we are more determined in the second half because the tie to zero does not fit us. "
– "It is a star eliminator and the one that goes through the final is reinforced, but we have not won the final, you have to play it ".
– "My planning was to go on to do many occasions from the beginning and score many goals, that is the truth. Then, afterwards, it is always said that the winning coach is above what he loses, but that is absurd."
– "We have other players besides 'Leo' (Messi) who make goals. Surez has tremendous data in Barsa's history and 'Leo' does not only make goals, it generates a lot of football. "
