"we are on the right track"-Ronald Koeman

Thu 03 December 2020 | 8:55

The Barcelona head coach said his men are now playing much more effective football on the pitch

Ronald Koeman

believes that Barcelona has changed a lot since the beginning of the season. Barcelona have won five consecutive games in the Champions League group stage and are top of Group G with 15 points.

If Barça wins against Juventus at the Camp Nou next Tuesday, they will have six consecutive wins, the highest number since 2002-03.

Barcelona appeared very strong against Ferencvaros last night. The second goal was scored after 33 consecutive passes, the most for a goal in the Champions League this season.

"

Lately, we have more effectiveness,

" Koeman said in a post-match media conference.

"In defence we can still improve, but we are on the right track and hopefully we can continue like this

.

"The difference is the team has been effective in the games. It is quite a big change compared to the beginning of the season. The hunger that we have, you have to prove it.

"The most important thing is to get to the last 16 of the Champions League, but if you win six out of six it would be a historic milestone."

Koeman 

was particularly impressed with

Dembele's

outstanding performance. He put Barcelona ahead from the penalty spot in the 28th minute and also provided an assist.

"

Dembele is a great player,

" added the Barcelona head coach.

"He is very fast, he plays with both legs and is physically very well. For the coach it is difficult to make decisions when people like Dembele are playing as they are.

"There is a lot of competition in attack. You can see that we have a good squad and we have been able to let several players rest.

"Those who have played have shown that there is competition, and want to play well and create chances."
