Koeman speaks on Betis squad rotations: 'It's true we are thinking about the cup'

Koeman says that some of the players are exhausted and that's why he rotated this time and Puig, Pjanic and Braithwaite all started against Betis.

The coach also points out that 10 of Barca's 11 matches this year were played away from Camp Nou.

"It's true that I've rested players thinking about the Copa del Rey, but above all because of the physical exhaustion of the players. We have played 11 games in January, of which 10 away, and all very late," Ronald Koeman said after the 3-2 away win against Real Betis.

Against Betis, Koeman fielded a rather experimental starting XI, with players like Miralem Pjanic, Riqui Puig and Martin Braithwaite playing from the start while regulars like Leo Messi, Frenkie de Jong and Pedri were left on the bench.
