The FC Barcelona confronts this weekend against the Real Betis in Benito Villamarín in the corresponding duel to the day 28 of LaLiga Santander. The culés, that come to happen to quarter-finals of the Champions League, do not have to despistarse of his aim in the domestic championship, since Athletic of Madrid and Real Madrid will not leave to litigate to the end.

Ernesto Valverde, technician of the Barcelona team, appeared this Saturday in the afternoon in front of the media to offer the already usual press conference of the previous of the parties. The technician extremeño commented, in addition to the duel in front of the Andalusian picture, other subjects of interest like the injury of Ousmane Dembélé or the eliminatory of Champions League against the Manchester United.

The Txingurri remembered the difficulty to bend to the Betis by the defeat of the first turn. "Claro that have looked the party of the 3-4. We and they. We know what is the Betis, what proposes and to what forces you. In the gone suffer a lot and lost. It is a vital party because it is an exit dificilísima. We know how they motivate in front of us. The past year cost us win because they posed a constant fight", said.

"I decided to risk with Dembélé because the one of the Lyon was a decisive party"

When they asked him on the rotations of face to duels like the one of the Athletic or the one of the Manchester United, was wary. "Until these parties play in front of the Betis, Espanyol and Villarreal between week. There are four parties before the Champions and are decisive for the League. An ours defeat joined to a triumph of the perseguidores and opens the League. And we do not want that it open . Tomorrow we have a very complicated party already will think in which they come", commented.

Precisely also it analysed by on the eliminatory against the English team. "Difficult, as with any pairing. All the teams have the same illusion and merits to having happened. The United is a historical team and will be an eliminatory attractive. They are immersed in a big series of results and the eliminatory open. It comes after a big result in field of the PSG and it is necessary to have care because it does not surrender never. This day had a lot of drops that in front of us will not have", manifested.

It risked with Dembélé

Another of the subjects that commented was the injury that Ousmane Dembélé produced in front of the Olympique of Lyon, after Valverde put him in the second time in spite of being 'touched' physically. "The previous day had finished with some annoyance, but taking into account that it was a decisive party put it in the list. And like the result was adjusted decided that it will play", explained.

The Txingurri matizó his decision. "It was a day to risk and risk, although we have lost a player by three or four weeks. The feelings that had before the party were very good. He thought that it could play perfectly, even of start, and we thought that it could have a small injury by how finish the training the day before. If it did not go by the marker would not have put him", sentenced.
