FC Barcelona is fighting with Real Madrid for second place in LaLiga. The culés need to finish the season at least in second place, since that could lead to a millionaire prize
The FC Barcelona does not go to throw LaLiga, as it left clear recently Ronald Koeman in his last press conference. "Always there are hopes, but depends on we same. It touches to follow winning parties, but keeps on being dificilísimo because have a party complicated was, but have hopes because we are improving and the team is very put", commented the trainer culé.
But in spite of the words of the Dutch, the reality is that the Athletic of Madrid is to day of today the big favourite to carry the title. The colchoneros take him out 10 points to the Barcelona before playing in this day 22, and besides have a meeting less, by what could become 13. It is a difference tremenda taking into account that the rojiblancos are showing intractable up to now.
By this reason, what the group barcelonista has to do is to add of three in three, forget of the leadership and centre in strengthening the second place. This second square that litigates the Barça with the Real Madrid and with the Seville is right now the real aim of the Catalans. LaLiga Keeps on being the dream and winning all could compete if the Atleti goes down the piston, but the most important in the day in day out has to be not going down of the second place.
Go second is important to keep the options of the title, but also could be key of face to the economy of the club. Because remain in the second square would carry to the Barcelona to play automatically the Supercopa of Spain the course that comes. This would do that the culés embolsaran only for participating some six million euros, an important figure as they are the accounts of the Barcelonan group.
The Glass of the King also gives two notes for the Supercopa
In case to happen to the final, obviously there would be more money at stake. Winning the Supercopa the 'pinch' would be still greater, although it will be necessary to classify and expect a year to be able to aspire to the trophy. But luckily, remain second in League is not the only way to access to this tournament. Be finalists in the Glass also would allow to the Barça the automatic classification for this championship.
To arrive to the final, the Catalans will have to delete in semifinals to the Seville, with the one who confront this Wednesday in the gone. It will be an eliminatory complicated, perhaps more even that the hypothetical final, but is another form to access to the money of the Supercopa. With the sevillistas to this level and with the Madrid struggling in spite of his bad moment of form, can that it was easier to arrive to the tournament by means of the Glass that with LaLiga.
