Barcelona boss Quique Setien said he didn’t like his team much in the first half of their 2-1 Copa del Rey win over UD Ibiza on Wednesday.

The visitors went behind after nine minutes and had a few more scares in a tough opening 45 minutes.

Ibiza also had a goal ruled out and hit the woodwork, before Antoine Griezmann won it in the second half with two goals.

Here’s what Setien made of it all:

“I didn’t like the team in the first half. But I understand the difficulties these games present, with the artificial grass and against a really intense and aggressive team that was very good at the back,” he said.

“I would have liked to have been more precise, but it will do us good because we can draw conclusions for the future from these games. When you do things poorly, you can improve them.”

The win sends Barca into the next round and makes it two from two for Setien, but he will want a big improvement from his time next time out against Valencia.
