Barcelona is currently four points behind Real Madrid and Girona in the league, which puts them in a difficult situation.
The importance of each game increases, making this weekend’s match extremely important for the Catalans, who cannot afford to lose any more ground in their quest for the league championship.
Barcelona will have an additional challenge this weekend when they play a strong opponent who is currently leading the league. The opposition puts more pressure on Xavi’s team because they have the same number of points (31) as Barcelona despite having played one fewer game.
The Polish striker Robert Lewandowski will be the center of attention, even though the team as a whole must work together. Barcelona’s title defense must prioritize the prolific goal scorer’s return to peak form because his goal total from the previous campaign has not been matched.
It is imperative that Barcelona advance. Winning is crucial, particularly psychologically,” Lewandowski stated, cited by SPORT.
We need to be able to win both of these crucial games in order to advance with six points.
“We are Barca, and we are at home. We must attack the game from the outset in order to have a chance to win.
“The fans are very important to us and can help us get fired up.”
