Martino has left out of the announcement in front of the Raise to Puyol for dosificar and avoid risks. The trainer of the Barça has warned that this year it can that it was not sufficient to add 100 points to be champion, given the level of Athletic and Real Madrid

The party of this Sunday against the Raise (19 hours, GolT and Channel Ties) is especially marked by the commitments that has to play the FC Barcelona against the Valencian team. On the one hand, it follows very present the 7-0 of the first day of League. For Martino, a result something deceptive: "I Think that this party was atypical, especially by what has done the Raise afterwards in the championship. It has showed to be a solid team, combativo, that goes out fast to the contragolpe and that defends well. It has not had any party more in which the rivals have done him so many goals. I do not expect a party of this nature".

By the another, by what has to arrive, that is a double clash in the Glass of Rey. In total, three duels in ten days. "We will bore us to see us the faces, because anybody can think that the parties will be similar. The Villarreal-Real Sociedad is a good sample", has explained Martino. The example is useful: the Villarreal won by 5-1 to the Real Sociedad the Monday, and the Thursday remained deleted when falling by 0-1 against the Basques. The vicinity between two commitments against the same rival does not want to say at all, according to Martino.

Regarding the announcement, the technician has explained the reason of the absences of Puyol and Iniesta. Of the central, has said: "it is not that it do not see it to play two parties followed, but neither see the need to run any type of risk. While we can dosificarle of this way will do well to the team and also to him". Of Iniesta, has explained that is in the final stages of his recovery: "it Is almost training with normality. Probably if it was a party definitorio or a final what played would have been able to play. We have thought that it was timely that trained some time more before a party".

Martino also has referred to the equality that reigns in the League and what expects of the second turn: "I Think that the thing will follow being equalised. Perhaps we are in front of a League in which it does not suffice with doing 100 points. It treats of not losing the rhythm of competition that have the others two leading teams".

The pre-season of Messi

Asked after the good moment of form after the injury of Leo Messi, Martino has explained it because his compatriot "has been able to do from the misfortune of his injury a different work of the rest. What usually does a team to the beginning of season he has done it in December, and is quite logical that find well, because it has recovered of his injury and because it has been able to do a work that other footballers have not been able to do".

They have gone back to the list Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, after the rest of the party of Glass of the King against the Getafe. Dongou Will be between the 18 that travel, whereas the sanctioned Alves and the lesionado Neymar also will lose the first of the three clashes against the Raise that the Barcelona will play the next 10 days.
