Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard sought to play down his side´s shock Copa del Rey draw at home to Alcoyano, insisting the result should not be blown out of proportion.

Leading 3-0 from the first match against third division Alcoyano, Barca made it 5-0 inside the opening 10 minutes thanks to a brace from Santiago Ezquerro but they conceded two second-half goals to draw the match 2-2 on the night.

"We have had chances to kill off the game and when you spurn those opportunities you end up paying for it," said Rijkaard.
