Koeman: Our goal is to go game by game, try to win every match

On Wednesday in the Copa del Rey, Ronald Koeman indicated on Barcelona’s come-from-behind win against Rayo Vallecano.

Ronald Koeman, head coach of Barcelona stated that his squad is striving to conquer the Copa del Rey as they try to overhaul Atletico Madrid’s LaLiga leaders.

Barca came from behind to beat second-tier side Rayo Vallecano 2-1 in Wednesday’s last-16 showdown in the Copa del Rey.

But, with the Catalan club set to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16, Koeman and Barca remain focused on the goal of silverware.

“I am very happy,” Koeman said post-match after reaching the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey. “From the beginning, we played a good game. In the first part, we forgave them on several occasions, in the last pass, there were plays in which there could be penalties.”

“Yes, we had problems in the first half. In the second one, especially with the score against, I think we’ve shown our personality, scoring quality goals, we came back in the game. In the end, you always suffer from such a tight result with just one goal difference. Overall, the team played very well.”

“We know these are complicated games, it does not matter the category of the opponent. They played a great game, they complicated us. But, in the first half, we forgave them, we should’ve scored one or two goals.”

“Our goal is to go game by game, try to win every game in order to try to move up in the table,” Koeman added. “Cut the gap we have now [in the league], play in the Champions League.”

“We want to win the Copa [del Rey]. I think this is the mentality our team has shown in all competitions and try to get the most out of it. It is important, we are Barca, but there are no easy games.”

“We know how the Copa games are, it doesn’t depend on the category of your opponent. You have to work a lot and play well. The field was not very good to play our game. Despite the state of the field, we played a very good game. Also, the team had the right mentality to overcome this play-off.”
