Chronicle: Barcelona is reborn in Seville
Opinion.Messi: the worst, the best
Gerard Piqué left Pizjuán with an excellent taste in his mouth.
Barça, from their point of view, showed that they still have room to fight for everything, despite the setbacks that came in the form
of Pedri's injury
, who arrived at the concentration hotel with crutches (muscle injury in the lower part of the left leg), and of the possible fright that gave what seemed a relapse of Araujo.
The Uruguayan, after a moment of doubt, was even willing to continue playing, but Koeman preferred to avoid risks and sent him to the locker room.
Some chairs, near the bench, ended up paying the duck.
For the central defender, coming back in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals, precisely against Sevilla, would be a turning point.
«Throughout my time at Barça we have gone through many moments like this.
Injuries appear, but if the team is in a good head and we all go together, it doesn't matter who plays.
The important thing is
having a team spirit
If we turn it around on Wednesday, everything changes, the season changes completely.
A team like Barça has to fight to the end for all the titles.
That's our job, "said Piqué as soon as the game ended before the Movistar LaLiga microphones.
«Of course there is a League, there is still a lot left and much worse things have been seen.
Despite those games that we did not measure up to, we have many others that show that you can be trusted.
Sevilla have not shot on goal, we have dominated them
We are not in an idyllic situation, but there is confidence ”, stressed the Barça center-back.
«The last times I had come to speak, they were painful moments.
This time I am very proud of the team.
We came from taking hard blows against PSG and Cádiz and we got up.
Against Elche we have already left a clean sheet and we have shown that there is talent to compete », insisted the central defender.
"Come back is the first"
“We will go back, of course.
This time we were able to keep up the pace throughout the match, despite the changes due to injuries, but on Wednesday everything will be different.
With this ambition, coming back is the first thing we have to do.
And if we do another full game, there are possibilities, "said a
who apparently is not concerned about the more than possible absence of Pedri or the perhaps less likely of Araujo.
«You have to wait to see who can get there and who can't.
We do not depend on a player or two, we have a squad capable of taking on any problem with injuries, "he explained.
Griezmann, meanwhile, finally ran out of minutes.
Something that the Dutch do not want to be seen as a wake-up call.
It's not a message for Antoine.
The only thing is that we decided to
change the system
, to have more depth.
Then, at 0-1, we needed to have someone faster than him by Leo's side.
It is not a punishment, it is only a matter of looking for the best for the team », the coach concluded.
