The 21-year-old appeared as a substitute in the tight encounter in Montjuic, that ended 1-0 to Barca, and was handed a chance to draw Espanyol level, but his effort came back off the post.
"Barcelona did dominate the game," Corominas confessed. "Although we did have chances, I think that they rightly won the derby.
"There may have been a foul in the goalmouth scramble at the end, I do not know. I tried to score, but the ball came back off the post.
"If I had managed to score then Barca would not have taken all three points.
"But after they had scored in the ninth minute it changed the game. It was the key moment, because we had set out with a plan.
"We did not change our way of playing, despite the goal."
