FC Barcelona will not risk to remain 'thrown' in the city by the planned strike for this Friday, and will travel the Thursday to Vitoria to confront the Saturday at 13 hours against Eibar
The FC Barcelona has opted for warning before that cure. Thus, it has advanced a day the trip to Vitoria to confront the Saturday to the Eibar in Ipurua (13 hours). Initially it was foreseen to displace the Friday, but instead of this the Barcelona expedition left course to Basque earths this Thursday in the afternoon, with the aim to avoid like this the general strike programmed the Friday in Catalonia.
In front of the forecast of incidents and cancellation of flights, the first intention of the FC Barcelona was to travel until Vitoria the same Friday in coach, after checking the impossibility to take an aeroplane this day by the announcement of general strike. Ernesto Valverde and his technical body, however, would have refused quickly this proposal when treating of a trip of six hours and more than 600 kilometres.
It was not the best possible panorama to face some hours afterwards the party against the Eibar, by what has altered the plan. The Barça, besides, ran the inherent risk to find with several autovías enclosed by fault of the pickets and demonstrators.
From here that finally it have taken the decision to travel this Thursday in aeroplane and, like this, save the problem. The FC Barcelona has landed in the afternoon-night in Vitoria, and this Friday will train in the field of the Sportive Alavés, Mendizorroza, with permission of the club 'babazorro'. Like this it will prepare as it is owed the party of the Saturday in front of the Eibar for, once finalised, return again to Barcelona to the 17.45 hours (local hour).
Press conference and announcement, this Thursday
The Barcelona team exercised therefore this Thursday to the 16.30 hours, and an hour before appeared Ernesto Valverde in press conference. Later, and after the 'Txingurri' gave to know the announcement, the Barcelona expedition directed to the airport of The Prat to take a flight chárter with destination to Basque territory.
