The Barcelona receive the Cadiz at Camp Nou in the match corresponding to matchday 24 of the Santander League. The match will be played this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. (1:00 p.m. in the Canary Islands) and the clash, which will be a great game because of how much the Catalans are playing and because the Cádiz will try to beat the Catalans again , can be seen through Movistar La Liga.
After the noisy stumble in the Champions League the Barcelona he has to dress short again to forget the sorrows. The 1-4 suffered before PSG last Tuesday left very touched those of Ronald Koeman in the maximum continental competition and only a miracle would allow them to be in the quarterfinals, so it seems that the bullet of the Champions League It seems that the Catalans have escaped.
This disappointment in the Champions League adds to that of the Spain Supercup. Two titles that escape the Barcelona and it remains to be seen what happens in the Copa del Rey and in the Santander League. In the first tournament, the Catalans were defeated 2-0 by Seville, so they will also need to overcome this adverse result. As for the league championship, the men of Ronald Koeman third parties continue at the expense of continuing to win. After the puncture of the Athletic the options to fight for the title seem to have been resurrected.
And it is that after more than a decade the Barcelona went blank last season and this course, in which Messi he owns his future, it doesn’t seem like he’s going to change. The Argentine forward continues to make headlines in all the media and every game is in the spotlight. It will not be different from Cadiz, where their performance, their gestures, their leadership, etc. will be examined.
In addition, the Barça fan has not forgotten the 2-1 defeat suffered by the Barcelona on the go in the Ramon de Carranza in front of Cadiz. That night Alvaro Gimenez opened the can and Ronald Koeman they found the tie thanks to an own goal of Alcala. Negredo gave the victory to the people of Cadiz thanks to a calamitous error by Lenglet and Ter Stegen, action that unleashed monumental anger in the Dutch coach of the Barça.
To try to get the three points out of the Camp Nou the Barcelona it won’t make big rotations. With Ter Stegen in goal the defense could be made up of Jordi Alba and Óscar Mingueza on the sides and with Clement Lenglet and Gerard Piqué, who returned to PSG, in the axis of the rear. Sergio Busquets or Miralem Pjanic they will compete for a place and ahead they will be Frenkie De Jong and Pedri González. On the front line Leo Messi and Ousmane Dembélé seem fixed and the last place will be played between Martin Braithwaite, Francisco Trincao or Antoine Griezmann, who could be ‘punished’ for going to France after the tough 1-4 loss to him PSG on the Champions League.
On the other hand, the accumulation of results has left in a delicate position Ronald Koeman. Everything indicates that the Dutch coach will end the season at the helm Barcelona, but in a few weeks the elections may be fundamental for your future. Candidates have other preferences, such as Xavi Hernandez or Jürgen Klopp himself, so the former Oranje coach has a lot at stake for the remainder of the season.
A Cádiz in low hours
Ahead will be a Cadiz that has gone from more to less throughout the season. The group that directs Alvaro Cervera adds six consecutive games without knowing the victory -five in the Santander League and another in the Copa del Rey-, so they begin to be in need of a triumph with which to gain morale. In fact, in the last three meetings –Athletic, Atlético and Real Sociedad– they have conceded four goals in each match, in addition to three against the Seville.
The defensive fragility that the Cadiz team is going through will be one of the points that will want to take advantage of the Barcelona to try to get three points out of the game. These latest results have led to Cadiz to give a slump in the classification of the Santander League and to be placed in the fifteenth position in the table, remaining three points from the relegation places, so the Andalusians are forced to start adding before the situation gets worse for them.
As for the eleven he will draw Alvaro Cervera seems to be clear. Ledesma will be in the goal and Espino, Alcalá, Mauro and Iza they will act in defense. Fali and Garrido will exercise in the double pivot being the bodyguards of Perea and Salvi. The line-up, as more advanced men, will be completed Álvaro Negredo and Choco Lozano.
