Ronald Koeman couldn’t hide his disappointment after seeing Barcelona held to a 1-1 draw by Cadiz at the Camp Nou on Sunday.
A late penalty after a foul by Clement Lenglet saw Barca drop points in a game they had dominated from start to finish.
Barca took the lead through Lionel Messi’s penalty but were once again let down by some poor finishing and yet another error at the back.
Here’s what Koeman made of it all:
“It’s disappointing. These kind of games have to be won and we didn’t do it.
“It’s a big opportunity lost after the Atletico Madrid defeat. It’s a big disappointment. I’m very disappointed, more so than last Tuesday. We couldn’t let the two points slip away. We are disappointed.
“I don’t like to blame the players individually. We weren’t up to the task in attack, and we have to defend differently. In terms of quality, we should have won. The problem is that the scoreline was very close and they could equalise at any moment, as happened.”

Barca missed the chance to cut the gap to Atletico to six points and could drop down to fourth place if Sevilla beat Osasuna on Monday. The two teams then meet in La Liga at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan on Saturday.
