The FC Barcelona takes action 72 hours after playing the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League against the Naples. They could not happen of the tie in a clash in which, although they were upper during a lot of stretches of the party, was missing them 'fang' in the last metres and decision to impose in the duels. Home, they will try to add his second victory been still in LaLiga EA SPORTS 2023/2024.

The Barcelona imposed by the minimum against the Real Celtic Club thanks to a goal of penalti of Robert Lewandowski in the injury time. They were three key points, considering the tie of the Real Madrid and the defeat of the Girona, and that offers them the opportunity to sleep, until the Monday, in the second position of the domestic championship. They add 54 points, two less than the picture gerundense, that plays the Monday in front of the Ray Vallecano.

Decisive party in Montjuïc

In front of the Getafe CF, this Saturday from the 16:15 hours (4:15 pm CET), for the Barça is compulsory to win in Montjuïc to follow alive in LaLiga. They are conscious that it is an opportunity of gold, but come very conditioned by the requirement of the party in Naples, that has left very wear# out to the players. They were ninety minutes complicated and the time for the rest has been minimum. Xavi Hernández complained in press conference by the schedule: "I Think that it had been better to play the Sunday or the Monday. But it has touched us play in this schedule, but is not an excuse, will compete and will go to by the three points".

The picture of Bordalás is one of the most uncomfortable teams in LaLiga, although it is of tenth in the competition. To the Athletic of Madrid him empató a 3-1 in five minutes and to the Real Madrid conditioned him, although more weight had the two goals of Joselu. It is a very direct team, vertical and that has to players that is to a very high level, as Borja Mayoral or Mason Greenwood.

Against the Naples served, in his measure, this formula and everything seems to indicate to that Xavi will give him continuity. Yes it will have to implement changes in his alignment, because some players will have to rest. Everything seems to indicate that Iñigo Martínez or Pedri González will rest in front of the Getafe and the benefited could be Cubarsí and Raphinha.

In the previous of the party, the trainer egarense aimed that "the team is smart to compete. Two days and half to compete are few, and are in front of a difficult party. Lewandowski always helps to the team. We are prepared to compete" and that "win would give us more tranquility, a week to rest. It would go us very well to try scalar positions. We would sleep in the second position and put more pressure to Girona and Real Madrid. But we have to do our work tomorrow".
