Koeman admits Barcelona need to beat Valladoild

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits they face Real Valladolid needing victory.

Barça travel to Real Valladolid on Tuesday on the back of a 2-2 draw against Valencia, which was the seventh time in 13 league games that Koeman's side have dropped points this season.

"We've changed things and are changing things with the team," the Dutchman said. "A lot of young players are playing and that brings inconsistency. For the future it's good, but Barca have to win things, fight for titles and win games.

"It's a complicated situation. We need time because we're making changes, but we're Barca and we need to win games. That's the complicated thing at the moment, more so for us than for other teams."
