The FC Barcelona will look for to assault this Wednesday Vicente Calderón (20.45 hours) and seal, of this form, the access to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League in hostile territory. A goal culé could finish to sentence the eliminatory
They exhaust the hours so that the barcelonismo live one of the most important parties -and trepidantes- of the season. The FC Barcelona is forced to make a good split this Wednesday in Vicente Calderón, where the Athletic of Madrid will do strong under the support of a stadium that, to pop, will be an authentic pot to pressure no apt for cardiac. After an unexpected series of bad results, the Barça of Luis Enrique will have to forget the last defeats of League BBVA against Real Madrid and Real Sociedad for enfundarse the boots, put the mind in white and do enjoy to his fans as it comes doing during the rest of the season 2015-16. In spite of everything, will not suffice the competitive mentality neither the cool legs.
The team blaugrana will need to rub the lamp so that they appear in the front his three genii, Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez, and mark some that another goal that achieve to sentence of definite form the eliminatory. Although it is true that to Neymar no gives him at all badly play in Vicente Calderón -already carries annotated four goals in terrain colchonero-, as neither to Leo Messi that has seen door in ten occasions in the coliseo rojiblanco, the reality is that for the time being the member of the trident that finds in a better state of form is Luis Suárez, whose two goals in the party of gone of fourth played in the Camp Nou could be vital so that the Barça access to the semifinals of the prestigious European tournament. It will be the Uruguayan the spearhead of the ones of Luis Enrique, that will have to lidiar by against with the drop of some secondary actors that will reduce the basic wardrobe in the bench: Aleix Vidal, Sandro, Rafinha, Vermaelen and Mathieu, all they descartados by injury.
"I struggle" it wants to have to all the effective available in the Calderón and by this reason has carried to Madrid also to Douglas and Masip, those who will not have minutes, whereas it foresees that it repeat the alignment of the gone with Ter Stegen in the goal, Alves, Hammered, Mascherano and Alba in defence and a centre of the field formed by Busquets, Rakitic and Andrés Iniesta, with the permission of a Burn Turan and Sergi Roberto that probably they are the first changes in going in in the second half, in function of the result, as well as Marc Bartra that it could go out of form forced if Gerard Hammered resiente of his recent problems in the pubis. In the edict of the Athletic of Madrid, Óliver and Giménez will not be available, as well as Fernando Torres that is sanctioned after the expulsion that saw in the Camp Nou; regarding Savic, will be doubt until the last moment and could be the canterano Lucas the one who go back to accompany to Godín in the saga colchonera.
The "Cholo" Simeone already ensured this Tuesday in press conference that the big fortress of the Athletic is "to know that they are better". Removing favouritisms and all the pressure of on, therefore, the athletic will go out to the terrain of game without at all that lose and will struggle by each balloon, being able to finish again with ten players in the case that his entrances are equal of "intense" that the ones of the party of gone, in which more than a player barcelonista finish seriously bruised.And l 2-1 of the meeting of gone does that the FC Barcelona was a go past in the eliminatory, although a goal of the Athletic of Madrid would change it everything. Antoine Griezmann will be the main danger for the FC Barcelona in the Calderón. The French accumulates 27 goals in 44 parties this season, and probably was accompanied in the front of attack by the escurridizos Carrasco and Correa, two attackers very habilidosos and that anytime can generate danger.
In any case, the Barça of Luis Enrique will give the all by the all in Vicente Calderón for avoiding that the Athletic of Madrid mark a goal and, taking advantage of the spaces that will leave backwards his opponents, try sentence the eliminatory to the counterattack, as it already did in the two parties of the round of eighth of final against the Arsenal. If the Barcelona goes back to win in the Calderón, already would be eight the consecutive victories of the ones of "Struggle" against the team trained by the "Cholo" Simeone, that still has not achieved to surpass to the FC Barcelona with the Asturian like technician. The collegiate Nicola Rizzoli will be the attendant to give justice on the terrain of game, although the reality is that it treats of a referee characterised by his capacity to leave follow the game and allow the physical contact, in occasions with too much frequency. The Barça, anyway, will not concern by the arbitration neither by the environment. It knows that it will be difficult to win in the Manzanares. But also it knows that it has to do it, and with this is sufficient.
