In spite of going penultimate, have won seven of the last nine points. I expect a similar party to the of the Eintracht. They have won to the Villarreal and in the Metropolitan. It is another final. We need the three points in front of a rival complicated that in the last years no has given us well", affirmed the trainer.

Also it commented about the occurred in Germany in front of the Eintracht. "We have seen repeated the party of the another day and were not well. We lost too many balloons and did few tactical faults to stop the contras endiabladas of the Eintracht. We suffer more than what usually suffer in defence. We do not finalise played and were missing us a lot of things. Still like this we take out a good result. The terrain of game neither helped, but have to be very autocríticos. In Europe can go through you on. We did not do a good party in Frankfurt", added the egarense.

The contractual situation depends on he and of the club", exclaimed the one of Terrassa.

The injuries and the referents

Near to finalise his statements, mentioned the three drops that will have the team in front of the Raise. "We will try that so much Sergiño like Memphis are for the Thursday. We do not want that recaigan of his injuries. They are training separate and his feelings will say. I hammered it does not have an injury in if, has a lot of annoyances. It has them from it does month and half or two months. The other day it said suffice because it could not more. We will see the Thursday. It is a wear of several things", said Xavi.

Finally, it expressed his thoughts on the exert of Eric García, the one of Sergio Busquets, and the function of Adama. "Busquets, with permission of Casemiro, is the best defensive pivote with difference. What gives us Busquets does not give it anybody more. Has rope for while. Find a substitute will not be at all easy. With Eric are very happy. It marks the defensive line of wonder and has leadership. It is a central for a lot of years for the Barça. Adama Did a big split the other day. It went two or thrice and centred, but do not find striker. His work did it. It is a baza important for us", concluded the míster.
