Everton manager, Koeman states the consequence that City will face when they take on Barcelona but insist that Guardiola can secure a win at the Camp Nou.
Recently, Koeman’s Everton gave City a good challenge for them to prepare against Barcelona when they drew 1-1 with the Premier League leaders. The match also saw two penalty kicks from Manchester City saved by Stekelenburg.
Koeman described Guardiola’s Manchester City as the best side he had ever come up against as a manager.
“They are strong enough as a team to get a good result in Barcelona.”
“But you play against Messi, you play against Neymar, you play against Suarez, we scored out of one chance.”
“If Barcelona get four chances they will score three times I think.”
“Thats the problem. The individual qualities of Barcelona is so extremely high.”
“City can beat Barcelona. They will also have the ball and I think it is the best game you can watch between the philosophy of two teams and it is a really high standard of football.”
“I’m really looking forward to seeing that.” Koeman said.
