Ponferradina - Espanyol | Copa del Rey: Moreno: "You have to give value to the classification, which was not achieved in years"

RCD Espanyol's coach, Vicente Moreno, has wanted to "value" the classification of his team for the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after eliminating SD Ponferradina in the penalty shoot-out (1-1 and 1-3), a fact that was not achieved in years.

The Spanish technician has recognized the difficulties that the berciano group has presented, "who is having a great season in the Second Division and played in his stadium" and where his team "has suffered more" than in the two previous rounds despite also being resolved by a narrow scoreboard.

Moreno has blamed his own mistakes, especially in the first half, the fact that his rival equalized the score despite the improvement in the restart that has not allowed them, however, to avoid overtime first and reach the penalty shoot-out.

Despite acknowledging the suffering, he reiterated the importance of passing the tie for a team, he said, "that it is doing things that must be valued, both in the league and in the Copa del Rey."

Heading into the next round of Cups, the RCD Espanyol coach has only shown his predilection for "going to the quarterfinals, because that would be major words," he said.
