“I’m really very happy about the performance,” said Koeman to club media after the match.

“I think we did well against a team who did more work in pre-season because they started sooner than we started.”

“We played well, we had good ball position and we scored two great goals in the first half. In the second, we controlled the game and we had even more chances to score more goals.”

“Overall, I think it [was] the standard that we like to show.

Barcelona will play their next pre-season match against RB Salzburg on 4 August.
