The defeat that was swallowed by Barcelona in El Clasico in the early days was indeed painful. Although Quique Setien coach recognizes the superiority of the host, but not so with club director Guillermo Amor. He said that Real Madrid did not deserve to win the match.
Barcelona visited the headquarters of its eternal rival, Real Madrid, in the 26th Spanish league in La Liga on Monday morning (26/03). After being held to a draw at a previous meeting at Camp Nou, the Catalan giants were clearly eyeing victory in this match.
Unfortunately, the Blaugrana must be the party who bowed languid at the end of the fight after Vinicius Jr. and Mariano Diaz scored the home winners throughout the second half.
Of course this defeat was very disappointing. Moreover, because of that Barcelona was also displaced from the top of the Spanish La Liga standings.
After the match, Coach Quique Setien admitted that his players were not good enough in the match. He also admitted that Real Madrid deserved to win the match. But not so for the club’s director, Guillermo Amor.
According to him, Real Madrid did not deserve to win the game earlier because of a bad game idea.
They pushed and pressed us. Their idea is to stop the game. They suppress and create opportunities. That proved to be a disadvantage for us, but I don’t think they deserve to win. We are very dominant, they hit us quickly. Amor said to Movistar.
However, Amor also admitted that Barcelona had missed some good opportunities, especially in the first half.
If we consider the first half then I think it was a very good performance. Very good. We control the game and have a chance, but miss it. If you forgive a team like Real Madrid, they will have a chance. Once they score a goal they see they can win and be motivated, “he said.
Lionel Messi, who became the mainstay in the match, had missed a golden opportunity. When he was just dealing with the goalkeeper, the Argentinian star was overtaken by Marcelo who then cut the opportunity.
Many were disappointed and finally blamed the captain, because that moment was considered very crucial.
