Ronald Koeman felt his Barcelona side were hard done by against Eibar and deserved all three points at the Camp Nou.

The Catalan giants had to settle for a point after coming from behind to draw 1-1 thanks to a second-half equalizer from substitute Ousmane Dembele.

Barca saw Martin Braithwaite miss an early penalty and then have a goal ruled out for a tight offside, and Koeman felt his team had done enough to take the victory.

“Again tonight we did well. We worked really hard. We did everything, we changed the team, we played one against one in the last 10 minutes. We did enough to win the game but finally we don’t win and that’s happened often.

“We deserved to win. We did enough, we created enough chances to score, we did not score the penalty and then a big mistake in defense and it was one shot on goal from Eibar and it’s 0-1.”

The result means scrutiny will be back on Koeman as Barca’s disappointing start to the season continues, while the team’s hopes of mounting a title challenge continue to look slim at best.
