Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: Alaves draw a bad point

Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba admits they were "bad" of their 1-1 draw with Alaves.

The post-Ronald Koeman era began with a 1-1 draw against the Basque side, with Memphis Depay's opener cancelled out by Luis Rioja.

Barça, coach by interim boss Sergi Barjuan, had the better chances but were once again made to pay for not taking them.

"It's a bad point," defender Alba told Movistar. "Anything other than three points for Barcelona is bad and even more so when you see where we are in the table.

"We did enough, but we're struggling to score and teams are scoring against us with very little. It's tough. The team is trying, but it's complicated."

Asked about Koeman and Barjuan, Alba added: "They're different coaches, but the idea is the same. We had very clear chances. I hope we can improve, for our own good. We're grateful to the fans that are with us in difficult moments."
