The Blaugranas will face a new challenge this weekend. After beating Osasuna by three points, the coach of the culé understands that this is not enough and that “the team needs three points to continue to rise in the standings.”
Alaves are currently in eleventh position with 26 points. With two wins in his last four games, Xavi Hernandez knows it will be “a very difficult and difficult match against a strong and aggressive opponent.”
The coach from Terrassa praised the role of coach Vitorian in the Basque national team: “They have an individual and aggressive team, the hand of Luis Garcia is noticeable.” He also highlighted the moment of their form and the difficulty of achieving victory in Mendizorroza: “We caught them at the best moment.”
In addition to the difficulties in the League, the Barça team accumulates a large number of losses, which make the Barça team vulnerable. The culé coach wanted to clarify that most of the injuries are related to the demands of the competition: “The calendar has been busy, so we have a lot of injuries. We didn’t get enough rest.”
The coach explained that the club and staff are “doing everything possible” to prepare the players. “We work hard to prevent injuries. Everyone uses GPS, but it’s part of the calendar. Sometimes we call the Federation to get a day off. It’s difficult,” Egarense said.
With so many casualties, more players join the fight. With caution as he recovers from injury, the Egarense coach emphasized Vitor Roque’s role. After scoring the winning goal against Osasuna, Xavi explained that the Brazilian had “improved significantly.” That is why in the game with Alaves this “will be important”, but also “in the next ones”.
