Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman reacted to his team’s 3-0 win over Sevilla in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou.
Koeman also warned that it would be difficult for Barcelona to beat Paris Saint-Germain after losing 4-1 to the Ligue 1 champions in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 last month.
Goals from Ousmane Dembélé, Gerard Piqué, and Martin Braithwaite ensured that Barcelona defeated Sevilla and qualified for the final with a 3-2 aggregate after losing 2-0 in the first leg last February.
“It is easier to come back from 2-0 than to come back from 1-4,” Koeman told reporters after the game.
“PSG have a great team and great players. We will start the game to win, to see if there is a chance to go through.
“I am so proud of my team. I can’t ask for more, really. We have changed the mindset of the team
” I wish we had lived it with 100,000 people at the Camp Nou … I hope that some Catalans can come to the final in Seville.”
Barcelona will now face Osasuna in the La Liga on Saturday before making the trip to Pac Des prince to tackle PSG in the Champions League.
