PREVIEW | Statements by Xavi Hernández (Barcelona Coach)

"We need to do a general reset and get the team back on track. The feeling is that defeat has taken hold here and that can't happen."

"That doesn't stop. And now we have an opportunity to continue to grow, to recover our sensations and get three points. We have improved in pressing after losses, in the high defensive line and in certain aspects of the game. But we have to return Barça to the place it deserves and that means competing with teams like Bayern".

"We have to recover our sensations and we have to win, starting with the Sadar match. It's another final and we can't lose any more points, we can't give anything away. There's nothing left but to work hard."

"There are moments when we don't understand what we have to do, like looking for the free man, and various details. We have to recover Barça's soccer identity. And that also means being brave, daring more. I believe we have the level to continue competing and end up winning titles".

PREVIEW | Statements by Robert Moreno (Granada Coach)

"In Barcelona the names change, but with Xavi the pattern of play is very defined, the model is the same, they have differential players that can change a game".

"I am not aware of the statistics, when they are bad I don't look at them, neither when they are good. They are anecdotal facts, we try to face each game to win, if that's all that remains then great, what interests me is to score points to save the team as soon as possible, I don't care about the rest".

"When you seem to get things you were looking for, you tend to relax. It worries me that we think that by doing something less than before we are going to get the same results. We are where we are because of the tension with which we approach games."

"My players have done well and I think they will continue to do well, but when you get a lot of praise, you think that with one percent less you do the same and get the same, and that's not the case."

"Special is every game with Granada which is the team I manage. It's Barça, I've been there, but nothing more, I don't give it much importance."

Barcelona is not having a brilliant moment in the season, but comes to this match in good spirits, after winning in midweek for the Copa del Rey, and the four matches without losing in the league, being two wins and two draws, of course. Today they are far from the fight for the title, but must get on a positive streak to have a chance at the end.

11:06 AM13 days ago


Granada has been showing some improvement, at least in terms of results, as it has not lost for six matchdays, winning three and drawing three. This will be a very difficult test against a Barcelona team that arrives with confidence, however, they will try to take advantage of the locality to tilt the score in their favor.
