Celta came really close to beating Manchester United at Old Trafford, Facundo Roncaglia scored in the 85th minute to get the score level at 1-1, they had lost 1-0 at home a week ago, and seconds from the very end, John Guidetti threw to the dustbin a clear chance to make it 1-2.
Eduardo Berizzo, whose future at Balaidos looks super bleak, because of how poorly the Galician side have been doing in La Liga for weeks now, feels his team deserved something more.
It was a great opportunity as it was right at the end but we created half-chances right throughout the game
the Argentine coach told reporters, referring to Guidetti’s missed chance.
We played really well and reduced them to one chance, from which they scored. We had a lot of possession, played exactly as we wanted to play. With all the effort we put in, it was a great shame not to reach the final
Berizzo said, before comparing how both teams did in all 180 minutes.
We performed much better here than United did in the first leg. It’s a good way to compare the performances. Given that, we perhaps deserved to go through. We left everything out there. We couldn’t have played any better, I don’t think. Given the huge gap on every level between the two clubs, I think with our fight and spirit we managed to bridge that gap
the Celta coach said.
