Between the Champions and salvation

The real Madrid made it clear that the League is a chimera as it has always defended Xavi, but there is no evil that does not come for good. The white victory in Seville puts the Barca on a silver platter the occasion that today in the Camp Nou (9:00 p.m., Movistar Laliga) consolidate as second. But for the first thing you must win the Cadizwhich is played to get out of the well of descent (follow the match live on

Barcelona arrives at the match with burned skin and in a strange state of agitation, which does not help that the match is played on Monday, even though it is a holiday in Catalonia. The sporting and social embarrassment that was experienced on Thursday at the Camp Nou against Eintracht will have its consequences in today’s game. For now, the ‘Animation Tier’ He has already announced that he will not attend the meeting as a sign of protest; the reaction of the rest of the stadium remains to be seen, like that of the team.

Xavi, at the press conference prior to the duel, he claimed to his players that “The disappointment against Eintracht has to screw us and cause us to take out our self-esteem”, but at the same time he recognized that the team has stagnated after beating Real Madrid 0-4 at the Santiago Bernabéu and to Seville upon returning from the break for the national team matches.

Two teams will meet at the Camp Nou who have their weak points at the ends of the match. While Barcelona find it hard to get into dynamics and usually start games dazed and trust their luck to dramatic endings, Cádiz, on the other hand, has plenty of the last minutes. Sergio González’s men receive most of their goals after 85 minutes.

The recipe for the game, a priori, seems clear because Cádiz will try to repeat the formula that gave the Germans such good results twice and Levante, who had honey on their lips last week. This is a tight defense and a lot of intensity to win individual duels to go on the counterattack.

To conjure up this style of play, Xavi will have to make his players aware that the ball will have to move very quickly despite the absence of Pedri, who has been the beacon of the team since his return. There, Frenkie de Jong and Gavi are going to have to multiply while the wingers will have to open the field.

Another of the solutions that Xavi will have to incorporate is in defence, where Piqué has not recovered in time and Araújo is suspended. Everything points to Lenglet, who ensures suspense.

For its part, Cádiz will seek to take advantage of the puncture of its two main rivals for permanence to get out of relegation again. Sergio has the fundamental loss of Alcaraz; Álex points to a replacement.
