FC Barcelona faces Levante on Sunday at Camp Nou knowing that Real Madrid has won and cannot afford to fail. The Catalans are now six points behind the Real Madrid players and need to beat the granotas
The FC Barcelona goes back to LaLiga after completing the best party of the era Setién in the eighth of final of Glass against the Leganés. The Barcelona will confront to the Raise in the Camp Nou this Sunday, from the 21:00 hours. The group barcelonista can not fail in the duel against the Valencians, since the Real Madrid won in the derbi Madrilenian to the Athletic and aventaja to the Catalans in six points in these moments.
Knowing that it is a face or cross in the fight by LaLiga, the intention of the ones of Setién is to follow to the level that showed in Glass. The trainer santanderino decided to go out in front of the Bequeaths with a marked 4-3-3 and left backwards his idea to play with 3 head offices and 2 carrileros very open. With this change, Semedo went in in the right side and Ansu went to the left, where could surrender much better. All the players were more comfortable, better planted and had more ease to the hour to create football.
Against the pepineros, the Barça took out his best version and showed that it can play much better of what came it doing up to now. In front of the Madrilenian saw to a Barcelona dominador with balloon, but also deep and dangerous of face to the rival goal. The horizontal passes and without intention gave step to others more vertical and with an end that finish being decisive for the 'manita' that the blaugrana put him to the Leganés.
The idea is to follow with this philosophy in front of the Raise to continue with the ascending line that has begun marking this week. For this, the technician santanderino could include several novelties in the eleven initial, thinking also in the chambers of Glass, that are this Thursday in Saint Mamés. It could have changes in defence, with the incursion of Sergi Roberto or Umtiti by Semedo and Lenglet, in addition to in the half, where could go in Arthur Melo. It expects also that the Cantabrian keep the 4-3-3 after the very that worked the Thursday.
In the forward, Griezmann and Messi will go back to be the big referents of the Barcelona. The two were decisive in front of the Bequeath, with two so many and an assistance of the Argentinian and the goal to open the tin of the French. The Frenchman played of '9' and moved very well, exchanging even his position with the '10' to whiles. Every time they understand better and expects that they keep on being keys against the Raise. Ansu, by his part, improved a lot with the change of band and in the left took out his best version in front of the Madrilenian in Glass. Desbordó, encaró whenever it could and went a puñal that also will suffer the granotas this Sunday.
The Raise won to the Barça in the first turn
The barcelonistas probably have not forgotten still the result of the first turn of this League and will go out to the Camp Nou with spirit of revancha. The Valencians won in the Ciutat of València by a conclusive 3-1 when tracing back the so much initial of Messi. In hardly seven minutes, already in the second part, the ones of Paco López marked three goals to sink to the Barcelona in one of his worst parties of the campaign.
The Raise is right now in the half zone drop of the classification of LaLiga and drags a negative series of five crashes losing between Glass and League. The granotas are to almost the same distance of Europe League, 8 points, that of the descent, 9. The aspiration of the levantinistas to principle of course was the permanence, but right now the aim is to ensure it by the fast road and try dream with something more. Mark in the Camp Nou would be a good way to begin to approach to this destination. For this, the ones of Valencia will be able to have Enis Bardhi, already recovered of his injury.
As rival, the ones of Paco López could complicate him the life to the culés if they do not take out the version that showed against the Leganés. Everything seems to indicate that the trainer of Chair will take out his classical system with three head offices and two carrileros, by what the Barça will have to work especially well his game to the spaces to hurt him to the defenders. Campaign will be the lighthouse in the midfield and up Mayoral (or Morals), that already 'wetted' in the gone, and Roger, seems that they will be the men commissioned to look for him the cosquillas to the Barcelona.
