The Ibiza in handcuffs, input, to Barcelona. In the first time, the barca team had the ball 80% of the time. However, the boys Setién generated no chance against the goalkeeper. And, as if outside little, the Ibiza is ahead on the scoreboard. “We have not been brilliant or inspired, but the Ibiza has made a huge party; give him a major merit to the opponent. It was not an easy match for the opponent, because they played the tie in a match. The goal has given them confidence and we had a hard time finding the way. We have been very inaccurate, we lost many balls, and we've given them options and life”, analyzed Setién.

Griezmann only played 18 times in the ball before passing by the locker rooms. “The opponent came better into the match, knew the field. We struggled to create opportunities; do not throw away, nor to-door in the first part,” said the frenchman. And justified: “We have to get used to the new system with three power plants. We will work with the tactic of the coach. We did better in the second part.” The club ended the duel with 78% of possession and 718 passes (636 good), and three shots on goal, two of Griezmann. The two sealed the comeback. “If I've gotten the goals has been for the passes from my teammates; it was a little further up, I had to wait for an occasion and I came back two. Take confidence with the ball”, completed the exdelantero of Atletico.
“I Am very happy because the team has not lowered the guard. The possession makes the opponent wear, they generate spaces and then you need to have success. There is No rush. The computer was not pleasant to me, obviously, but I understand the difficulties,” analyzed Setién. Sergi Roberto, captain of Barcelona in the absence of Messi, Busquets and Pique, agreed with his coach and added a further argument: the field. “With artificial turf and a goal against all is more difficult, but we knew that if we had patience would lower its intensity,” said the player Catalan.
Setién opted for three players of a subsidiary: Riqui Puig, Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati. Before the Ibiza, the average age of Barcelona was 25 years and 22 days, the youngest has proposed to the Catalan club in the season in all competitions. “It has been difficult for them [as young people], was a match of a lot of contact, with situations difficult to resolve but I'm happy with them,” concluded Setién.
