FC Barcelona faces Athletic Club this Saturday in the final of the Copa del Rey. The culés have in front of a complicated rival who already beat them in the Super Cup and they will have to play a perfect match to win
The FC Barcelona wants to add this Saturday his first title of the season against the Athletic Club. The culés and the bilbaínos confront in the final of the Glass of the King in a very interesting party between the two teams with more entorchados coperos in the history of Spain. A duel in which the Barcelona can not fail and in which it will have to go out to 100% from the minute one until the pitido final. These are the keys of the meeting:
Improve in the defence to the spaces
When more it has suffered the Barça this campaign has been defending the contras of the rivals. The Catalans have problems to defend to the space, as it left clear Kylian Mbappé in Champions League, Vinicius Jr in the Classical or even the Valladolid in League two weeks ago. In the Athletic, Iker Munian or Unai Victorious are good throwers and Iñaki Williams is a gazelle, by what it will be necessary to be very attentive not to suffer in this appearance.
Improve the puntería of face to goal
Play the one who play, is evident that the Barcelona can not forgive so much of face to goal. The blaugrana had several clear arrivals against the Madrid that finish in at all and is a habit this course that forgive opportunities in put it rival. In a final there are not second opportunities and forgive goals 'sung' could go out very expensive. The ones of Ronald Koeman have to be more precise and conclusive to the hour to define.
The factor Leo Messi
Although it was evident, does not be necessary to forget that Messi can decant any party anytime. The problem is that the Argentinian is not appearing in the most important meetings of the campaign. It was not fine in the final of the Supercopa of Spain, neither in the Classical, and neither saw him in the gone of Champions in front of the PSG. The '10' has to show that it is the best of the world 'giving' this Glass to his fans.
Be concentrated of the first second to the last
The Barça already knows what is to play and lose a final against the Athletic this campaign. In the Supercopa, the 'lions' empataron by until twice to the culés with goals almost at the end of the first part and of the second. In the extention, Williams finished of 'kill' to the Barcelona with the golazo of the triumph. This time, the ones of Koeman already know that they can not despistarse and that they have to be concentrated at all times to avoid that it go back to suceder the same.
Play with speed and atrevimiento
When better has played the Barça this season is when more speed has given him to his game and with more atrevimiento has gone to the rival goal. This is what has to do this Saturday from the pitido initial. Frenkie Of Jong, Pedri, Busquets, Messi... This team has players of a lot of able quality to play, create and generate a lot of football and needs to show atrevimiento and win that they leave clear who is the favourite and who goes impose.
