PSome would have believed in mid-December that Bara would depend on himself to win the League in these first days of April. Before Christmas, the difference with the Atltico was abysmal (13 virtual points). Nevertheless, Ronald Koeman’s team has turned the situation around in an extraordinary way. The pace that he has in this 2021 is really that of a champion team, winning 12 out of 13 matches you have disputed. The Atltico’s stumble in Seville allows the Catalans to face the final stretch of the competition with the certainty that if they don’t make mistakes they will be champions because they no longer depend on anyone.
Many factors have been determining factors in this reaction: Messi’s excellent form; the tireless work of Koeman in search of the best system for his team, which he has found in the three centers; youth performance when it was time to pull them; a De Jong and a Pedri at a very high level; an irregular Atltico and Madrid … And now he has 12 days off. First of all, tonight’s clash against Valladolid, the Classic next weekend and the next, the Cup final. It is the key moment of the season that’s why Koeman doesn’t plan to book anyone today due to cards or fatigue, although being cautious in the return of the injured Piqu and Sergi Roberto.
Valladolid, meanwhile, arrives at the Camp Nou in a box. Up to 12 casualties accumulates a Sergio Gonzlez who assured in the previous press conference that the team had had a “shitty week”. To the positives for coronavirus of Roberto, Kike Prez, Luis Prez, Joaqun Fernndez and Mchel, the last minute injuries of San Emeterio and El Yamiq were added. In addition, Weissman arrived touched by the national team and is not available, like Orellana, who meets a cycle of reprimands.
Given this, the Catalan technician has been forced to cite multiple affiliate players to complete the call. The good news is in the returns of Marcos Andr and Hervas, who, although they will not be part of the eleven yet, they could have a few minutes in the second half.
