Manuel Pellegrini: Malaga surpassed Barcelona

Goal :    Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini insists his side should have come away with a victory against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey quarterfinal first-leg clash.

The visitors went ahead after a mistake by Thiago let in Manuel Iturra but the Blaugrana restored parity and then went ahead before halftime.

Ignacio Camacho got 10-man Malaga’s second precious away goal to tie the match at 2-2 in the final minutes, but Pellegrini feels on the evidence of the second-half performance his team deserved much more.
