Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has said his side lacks confidence when it has only a narrow lead in matches and must focus more on killing off its opponents and seeing out wins.
Barca drew 1-1 at home to Cadiz in its last league outing despite having 81% possession and only conceding one shot before giving away a late penalty due to a foul by defender Clement Lenglet.
“We perhaps are a little scared when we only have a one-goal advantage, it has happened to us before,” Koeman told a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s La Liga match at home to Elche.
“We had lots of possession, lots of chances, but in the end, we drew 1-1. But I also have to say we’ve had a lot of bad luck and it’s not fair. Opponents always seem to score against us when they have very few chances.”
