Araujo knows what Xavi will tell Barcelona players after Real Sociedad win

Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo was happy to share his thoughts after helping the Catalans to a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey.

Ousmane Dembele scored the game’s only goal at Camp Nou as Xavi’s side picked up another clean sheet.

The victory sends Barcelona through to the semi-finals of the competition, leaving Araujo a happy man but well aware that his coach will have some harsh words for his players.

“I’m very happy to have passed. Tough game, as we expected,” he said.

“We were very good, pressing. We knew what we had to do. With a man down, they made it difficult and didn’t create spaces for us.

“Ousmane had a great game. We know the quality of the player he is. He helps us with goals. He makes good decisions, which is the most important, something that was difficult for him at the beginning.

“I’m sure Xavi will give us a pat on the wrist for those chances at the end and tell us we should have closed the game earlier.”

Barcelona are now focused on La Liga and a trip to Girona this weekend.
