After confronting to the Champions, the FC Barcelona changes of competition and puts again looking to LaLiga, concentrated in another important visit of the Girona. Further of the festive environment that supposes to première another derbi of First Division in the Camp NouErnesto Valverde has reviewed some of the keys for the meeting.

"Of course that the party against Chelsea will serve us of reference, although they are different teams. At the same time, they are teams that carry time playing of a very special way. They are doing an incredible campaign and, possibly, are the team disclosure. The Eibar also, but is not so much surprise. The Girona, with this enthusiasm and intensity, is very near of Europe", has valued to start with.

After signalling that with the almost ensured salvation, the rojiblancos turn into a dangerous opponent, refused the idea that his go through a moment complicated: "I do not think that we have had a bajón. It is true that have had two parties been still in house against Alavés and Getafe that have cost us. Also it is true that in Glass have been very well. Already I know that on the party against Chelsea there are opinions for all the tastes. To me it seemed me a partidazo, but throw you two sticks and seems that... It would like me go to the field of Chelsea to dominate and to do a lot of goals, but the others also are very good"

"The points cost more now because anybody has time to react"

"I think that we are well. We know that we are in this process in which the parties are more definite that before. Now no longer there is time to react, neither for us, neither for the rivals. The points cost more now. Of the 14 parties that remain, 8 are home. The one of morning it is necessary to take it out because, besides, is a derbi", has warned on the final stretch of the season.

On the rotations for the clash, first has wanted to launch a warning: "it Is truth that is a week of three parties, but are not thinking in the Athletic. We want to arrive to this party with the distance that have now, as minimum. The best way is not thinking in the party against the Athletic, but in the one of morning. Already it will arrive the Atleti".

"It is an important week because they remain 14 parties and three ventilate them already this week. These nine points go to say a lot. The party of morning has his crumb by the rival that is, by the moment of form in which it is, that is the best of the season. It is possible that there are changes in the team by the quantity of parties followed, but all will be thought to achieve the victory", has recognised, however.

Proper names, but without tracks

In relation to some of the proper names of the meeting, Valverde has not wanted to wet. It has esquivado questions on ArthurDenis Suárez and the World-wide, and neither has gone in in a lot of details with Ousmane Dembélé: "we Expect that it was prepared, yes. Therefore it goes summoned. It will depend of the trainer that go in or no between, in function of the party. It carries some parties going in in the list and is had. Already we will see it".

"The subject of Hammered will value it in the training. Yesterday it did not train by caution and is truth that are in a week in which we play us nine points", has left to fall also on the central, that a priori would have to go in in the rotations but is not, neither much less, descartada his participation.

After leaving clear that the renewals do not go through his hands, yes has 'wetted' on Sergi Roberto: "it Is a player that adapts , that has clear exit by out and inside. That is educated here and knows the game of position perfectly. Also it has a big commitment and will. If you see his path since it began in the first team, sees that it has gone little by little. Now it is settled and to a very high level. For us it is a blessing have it".
