This Friday, the FC Barcelona will have to look straight ahead with his fears in the party of quarter-finals of the Champions League against the Bayern of Munich to look for his note to the semifinals. Quique Setién, trainer of the Catalan group, spoke in the room of press about the party, desvelando some of the keys that can determine the result of the crash.

The technician santanderino began giving him options to play to Ousmane Dembélé, that went in in the announcement after not playing from November. "We arrive well. It is a party that are expecting and for which have worked well. We have prepared it well. It is a satisfaction have already to Dembélé in the announcement. It will be in disposal to participate if we consider it timely. It carries almost a year without being able to participate, but have the illusion that it can participate and do it well", said.

Quique Setién is conscious of the tremendo been of form in which it arrives to the party the Bayern of Munich, but does not see to the FC inferior Barcelona. "We know of the potential of the rival. We will try to minimise his strong points. They are potentially extraordinary, but also we are it. I think that it will be a party equalised, with alternatives for the two. Sure that have a lot that say in this party", commented.

"Lewandowski Is a big player, but is not to the height of Messi"

The Barcelona technician has clear that the possession of the balloon is key, but no definite. "It will be important to have the balloon because it will allow us defend less time without him. This would be positive by the offensive potential that has the Bayern. It is obvious that if have the balloon, can not hurt you. Everything will depend of the tarpaulin. Yesterday we saw that in the Atalanta-PSG, the team that went by in front was not the one who more possession had", remembered.

Quique Setién also answered on the fanfarronería of the surroundings of the Bayern of Munich. "The motivation in this party is intrinsic. A thing is what can think the people and afterwards another is the reality of what happen in the terrain of game. Sure that see to two big teams that will treat to win the party playing according to his identity. I expect a party equalised and contested. Like this I see it I", manifested.

The santanderino also answered on the possibility to play with 4-4-2. "We have posed us a lot of things, but will not be able to them see until morning. Perhaps the drawing was not so important. Have clear the talent and the speed that has this team especially in attack. When have the balloon, will not remain us another that defend. In the meantime, I think that always it will be better to treat to conserve the balloon and hurt them in the measure of the possible", explained.

In definite, Quique Setién expects a party equalised in which they will decide the details. "Of them they concern us a lot of things because they are able to tighten and defend. It is for seeing if we can go out of this pressure. I think that it will be a party with alternatives. There will be a dominador clear. The one who hit in his occasions, will be the one who happen the eliminatory. I expect an eliminatory quite equalised", sentenced.

Duel between Robert Lewandowski and Leo Messi

Quique Setién answered with forcefulness to which say that Robert Lewandowski is upper to Leo Messi. "It is a big footballer, but think that is not to the height of Leo. This think that is clear. It is truth that is in a grandísimo moment and that is very very aided by a lot of mates that has around. It is very well, but I Read also. Already we saw it against the Napoli. It is well that these players are in the field and can enjoy of them", signalled.

The trainer of the FC Barcelona was asked finally by the ionfluencia of Leo Messi in the party. "That if it has to win Leo Messi this party? It can help, but I create in the fortress of the team. To Leo also is necessary to assist him. It can manufacture the goals, but without the fortress of the team, Leo would be less, as any another player", concluded.
