Calendar of FC Barcelona

Win LaLiga Santander is complicated, but the FC Barcelona wants to exhaust all his options and give fight to the end. That 'dream' goes through to win in Santiago Bernabéu, in front of a Real Madrid that has carried the last five Classical and that has broken, completely, a historical series in front of the Barcelona. This Sunday the two big of Spain go back to cross in a party that, although it is not one 'final' to struggle by the championship, yes is key so that the Barça recover his best feelings and can recortar points.

The group directed by Xavi Hernández arrives with very good feelings and spirits to give a hit on the table. The egarense recognised that the White House is the big favourite to remain with the three points, but have the illusion to struggle and assault Santiago Bernabéu that them 'resist' from does long. The culés come of seven consecutive victories and eleven parties without knowing the defeat, with a mejoría more than palpable in the game of the team.

The difference between the Classical of the month of January in the Supercopa (2-3) and east by LaLiga is abysmal, although already in this party the Barça had left the first 'signals' of change. Since and I save to the defeat against the Athletic of Bilbao, the group culé has gone on line ascending and with a clear idea of game that works play the one who play. The blaugrana know that, independently of this 'subidón', confront to the that has been the team more regulate of the season.

The Real Madrid has taken advantage of of the bajones of the Barça and Athletic, is true, but also has signed a season of lights and with authority. They have turned into a solider team and more goleador. Karim Benzema is one of the big managers of this mejoría, and precisely will not be to confront to the eternal rival by some annoyances that have left him out of the announcement. It is a point that, obviously, is in favour of the culés.

The Frenchman has marked 22 of the 59 so many that has the Madrid in this League, but no only this: it has turned into the big leader of the team and an engine. Xavi Hernández, in fact, recognised his importance: "If it is not the best 9 of Europe, is of the best. It carries 2 or 3 years being of the best 9 of the world. His drop does not change our approach. I imagine that his yes. It is a sensitive drop, is clear".

Attention to the 'cracks' of the Madrid

Benzema Is not, however, the only that has given the 'expensive' by the Madrid in this season and, although it is important that was not (to profit of the culés), are varied the players 'dark' to which the Barça has to fear, beginning by Thibaut Courtois that only has fit four goals in the last nine parties. In LaLiga conceded a so much in front of the Real Sociedad (4-1 final) at the beginning of month. Before it had not fit from the 2-2 against the Elche. In summary, in the domestic championship, the guardameta Belgian only has fit three goals in almost two months.

To the goalkeeper also has helped it have in front a defence that every time is more consolidated. Eder Militao and David Praises have complemented more than well and will be accompanied by Nacho Fernández in the left side and Dani Carvajal by the right. The leganés is the weak point of the team and will be the 'road' by which the Barça will have to generate more danger.

In the centre of the field, everything aims to that will be the 'CMK', that can be so much an advantage like a disadvantage, but if the Barça achieves presionar very high and have rhythm, can win the battle in the medullary. Finally, there are a lot of doubts in the forward, but yes there is something true is that Dani Alves and company will have a lot of work to detain to Vinícius Jr.

The Barça, with illusion and spirits

Although it is true that the Real Madrid arrives very well to the party, the Barça also does it. The group culé does not know the defeat from the Glass of Rey, against the Athletic, does more than two months. In LaLiga, are three months without falling. Win in Santiago Bernabéu will be a big step forward, but from the team have 'subtracted' pressure of face to the crash.

In press conference, Xavi commented that "it is a dia spectacular to do a big party, that are reflecting this idea of game that are understanding very well", explained. "We have grown like team from noviembro, but this does not mean at all. It does not indicate at all how you arrive, it is necessary to show personality and try our model of game".

A possible traced back goes through the Bernabéu

The Barcelona finds at present in the third position of LaLiga, to fifteen points of the Madrid with a party less. To win, the distance would remain in 12 units to fault of what can suceder against the Ray Vallecano. Xavi explained that it is very difficult, but the same go to try it: "if we win tomorrow it puts us in very good position to approach us to the first aim, that is to be in Champions. Speak to win the League see it remote, complicated. We would put us to 12 with a party less. It will be difficult equally. The pressure is the same, are three points in an important field. There is pressure for both".
