It is used to say that new year and new life, and this saying has adapted it Ernesto Valverde to express the perspectives of the FC Barcelona of face to the new season. For the extremeño, at all of the attained up to now explains, and is that the aim is to confront to LaLiga, the Glass of Rey and the Champions with the aim to go out champions in the next months. "The difficult is not only win, but go back to win", has warned the Txingurri.
His first challenge, after conquering a Supercopa of Spain that escaped the past course, is to start with good feelings in the championship of the regularity, taking into account that the defence of the crown goes to be a carrerra background that begins in August and will lengthen until May of 2019, when the culés want to cross again the line of put in first position.
The first to the that will have to leave backwards is the Sportive Alavés, a team of the considered modest but that already has given some recent fright to the Catalans. To these heights of the campaign, the big are more liable to surprises, and it will be necessary to take into account all the details to remain with the three points and continue with the positive series.
The four keys of the Barça-Alavés
The start of LaLiga, key for the title
The circumstances in which the Barça has begun this season are a lot better that those that handled in the previous, with a painful market and an adrift team and struck after the Supercopa. The mentality, this yes, does not have to change, because the capacity of suffering and the points that tieed up in the start were decisive for the title. Athletic, and especially Real Madrid, were tripping to the start, what allowed that the culés enjoyed of an advantage that gave them some break in the demanded final stretch.
The Barça struggles against the fault of rhythm
Of the same way, an appearance that has changed is the World-wide of Russia, that has trastocado a pre-season that follows being present in the City Condal. There are players that arrive with very little rhythm in the legs, and in addition to putting to tone have to do it winning. Stars like Samuel Umtiti or Ivan Rakitic carry little more than a week training, but have to be smart for when the Barça need them. It is question to go adding meetings.
The Alavés, dangerous in the Camp Nou
The Alavés visits the Camp Nou like a wolf with skin of lamb, and is that in spite of having learnt of the defeat of two years ago (1-2), the blanquiazules never put it to him easy to the Barcelona. Ernesto Valverde already has admitted that has asked concentration and that has studied in great depth to the rival, but this preparation also has to reflect on the lawn in a moment dangerous of the course, by the previously quoted questions.
A ready staff for everything
Although to these heights of the past year, the Barça was 'touched' by the escape of Neymar, this year does not have so many discontents, because it has completed a staff to dream. Coutinho Already saw of Barcelona, Dembélé is healthy and enchufado and the reinforcements have left a group compensated and very powerful. It will do fault an effort in the management because it goes to be complicated to leave to some footballers out of the announcement, but the key is in the rotations and go to have more importance that never.
