Barcelona - Opposition Views 1


Recommended Posts

Smiler from FCBes.com has answered some questions on tonight's crucial UCL Semi Final Second Leg with Barcelona!

Barcelona have lost their last two games, do you think this will effect you going into the second leg of our Champions League encounter? This could work in one of two ways. 1) The proper, (couldn't bring my self to say real) Barca team arrive, pride hurt and angry, ready to show the world (or the press) that they've been written off too soon and play an absolute blinder, qualifying easily for the final. Alternatively, 2. Confidence low, they start off slowly, the crowd begin to get on their backs. It looks like the season has ground to an anti climax. Then, against all expectation and against the run of play, 30 seconds into the game, Messi, with his first touch scores the first of his 5 goals for the night, as Barca easily qualify for the final

After losing to Real Madrid on the weekend, Barca are now sitting 7 points a drift from retaining the La Liga title. Do you think you still have a chance of making up the difference? No. We needed to win on Saturday to stand any chance of winning La Liga this season.

It looked to me that you went out with a full squad against Real Madrid, do you think this will effect the players and will there be any changed for the second leg? Pique will return to help nullify the expected aerial threat from Chelsea. He's been injured and Pep gambled on Saturday in not playing him. It backfired with their first goal.

What were your thoughts on the first leg between Chelsea and Barcelona and do you think Chelsea's play was too negative or spot on? Chelsea got lucky. Barca will never create that many chances again without scoring. After Chelseas scored, the negative spoiling tactics were always going to happen. This will be how Chelsea begin tomorrow nights game

And finally, what is your prediction for the second leg of our Champions League Semi Final and who will progress to the final? If Barca score early, I predict a 3-0 win for us in normal time. If Barca score late I predict a 3-0 win in extra time.
