LIGA BBVA – Barcelona needs a come-from-behind victory

Write-up by Andrew Hill

Sevilla defeated the Catalonians 3 to one on the initial of two games to choose the champion of the Super Copa, the 1st title of the Spanish time.

If things had been not hunting very good for Barcelona on their visit to Sevilla, due to essential absentees, issues have not improved much given that then. Now they are two ambitions behind and based mostly on their performance in the course of the 2nd half of last game, adjustments want to be accomplished if they are really hunting forward to win their first title of the time. This time Joseph Guardiola will have the chance to get ready the game with all of his players, even although not all of them are in optimum situations to dispute it.

In the course of their pay a visit to to Sanchez Pizjuan, Barcelona was ready to handle the game in the very first 50 percent, and was even capable to consider the lead right after Ibrahimovic connected a crossing from Maxwell. Issues have been seeking excellent for them. The experimental staff manufactured up from reserve gamers combined with experienced gamers was providing Barcelona the lead. That was right up until the fatigue attacked them on the 2nd fifty percent, leading to them to loose the possession of the ball and opening a lot more spaces that have been properly taken advantage of by Sevilla and its strickers, Luis Fabiano and Frederic Kanouté.

This Saturday Barcelona will play its 1st home game of the time, and it is hunting ahead to welcome its fans with a title. This game could also be the debut of striker David Villa with the team, who came from Valencia right after a 40 million Euros deal. His numbers and existing give the followers factors to imagine that “El Guaje” will have an excellent efficiency in the group. His adaptation process should be quick, as he already is aware of the Spanish league and some of his teammates from the Nationwide staff. Goals are what he provides, and goals are what they require to defeat the 3 to one defeat.

Many newspapers are speculating with the possible inclusion of the FIFA Entire world Cup champions in the starting line up, but Guardiola did want to make it apparent that: “maybe some of them will play, but not all of them”. He thinks that some of them are not physically match nevertheless and doesn’t want to take the risk of exposing them to a possible injuries. The coach is informed that the score is a tiny bit cumbersome and that they require to have a “great efficiency to defeat Sevilla”.

Issues change speedily in the planet of sports activities. If previous week Barcelona was getting impacted by the absence of its players due to worldwide compromises with their nationwide teams, now it is Sevilla’s flip, as they have to face a game this Wednesday for the UEFA Champions League qualifying round versus Sparta Braga. This match towards the Portuguese squad offers them less time to put together the game versus Barcelona. The great news for them is that Luis Fabiano will keep in the club, despite the interest shown by Olympique de Marseille.


It would seem like Barcelona is going to near the summer with only two new gamers: David Villa and Adriano. Coach Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to spend the pricey costs in the marketplace, and now that Fabregas produced a public announcement about him continuing to play with Arsenal during this period, there is no other player that interests Guardiola. This is why he has taken the determination to appear into the reserve players to strengthen the staff. He explained that except there is a discount they will not deliver everyone in.
