BARCELONA, Spain (AP) – First in the Spanish league and then in the Cup, Barcelona and Celia will meet twice in five days, hoping for each team.
“Barcelona” will visit “Sevilla” on Saturday with the team of the third team “Atletico” of Madrid with five points. In the fourth place, “Celia” is two points behind, but has an extra game.
Barcelona’s victory puts him ahead of second-placed Real Madrid, with the reigning champions playing Real Sociedad on Monday. The victory of “Celia” would give the team more hope than just the final of the top four and a ticket to the Champions League.
On Wednesday, the teams will unite at the “Camp Nou” stadium, where “Barcelona” will try to tour “Sevilla” 2. The 0 defeat in the return match of the Cup semi-final.
Barcelona beat Elchi 3-0 on Wednesday, scoring two goals against Lionel Messi. The victory came after the team defeated Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 in the Champions League և a disappointing draw with Cadiz in the championship 1. 1 score.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has assured Messi that the team was sent off in the second half due to a double after his team’s lethargic game before the half.
“When I talk about our veteran players, I do not mean Messi because he continues to score goals,” said Kuman. “We need other players to make a difference for us, not Messi.
“We have to finish this bad patch by playing well and getting good results.”
Both teams were in good shape in the league, despite failures in Europe. “Barcelona” is unbeaten in 14 games, and “Ciglia” continued to win the series in six games, despite last week in the Champions League from “Borussia” Dortmund 3. The defeat with a score of 2.
With his strong defense and powerful counter-attack, “Celia” has gained an advantage in the previous two matches against “Barcelona” this season.
The well-disciplined team coached by Julen Lopetegui in the first league match in October 1: 1. He played a draw with 1 point at Camp Nou. “Celia” then beat “Barcelona” in the Cup two weeks ago, scoring goals from defender les yul Kaunde and former “Barcelona” midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
“Celia” playmaker Suso is suspicious of the game on Saturday, after some pain from the fracture kept him out of the game on Wednesday.
Probably the key match will be Messi against Sevilla goalkeeper Yassin Bounou. Messi has scored 18 goals in the league, while Bounou has had five consecutive shots in the league, anchoring a defense that has conceded just 16 goals throughout the season.
Atletico will visit Villarreal on Sunday, the worst season of the season.
The team lost to Chelsea 1 in the Champions League on Tuesday. He lost his once-compelling lead in the Spanish league with just one win in the last four games of the tournament.
Sixth-placed Villarreal have also struggled in their last six league games with five draws and one defeat.
