As third in their group, FC Barcelona will play their future in the Champions League against Inter on Wednesday. Anything other than a win could seriously jeopardize the Catalan club’s chances of qualifying.
Lewandowski is expected to take his turn against Inter.
FC Barcelona is already approaching an important turning point in its season. On Sunday, the Catalan club travels to the Bernabu to take on Real Madrid in the 10th match day of La Liga.
On equal terms, the two sacred monsters of the Spanish Championship will declare themselves for the first time in 2022-2023. But for that, the Blaugrana have to reassure themselves and reassure their fans.
Victory almost mandatory
Indeed, the Xavi band will receive Inter on behalf of the 4th day of the Champions League this Wednesday. During the first leg of the groups, the vice-champion of Spain showed a rather interesting face. But in accounting terms, the Camp Nou resident was not rewarded. After a huge success at Viktoria Plzen (5-1), Barcelona fell with the honors to Bayern (2-0) before falling into a very tense game due to questionable refereeing decisions against Inter (1-0), as the week goes by.
With only 3 points left on the clock, the calculation is simple: in the event of a defeat, qualifying for the round of 16 will certainly start with 6 units less than the Lombard club. In other words, a success is almost necessary to return to the level of the Nerazzurri for the reception of Bayern, who, barring disaster, must validate their ticket for the next round starting tonight. A second consecutive elimination from the groups after a lavish summer would be a real insult to the front-runners at Barcelona.
Xavi warns his players
In a press conference, Xavi did not fail to put pressure on his players. Being in this situation hurts me. We have no other choice: we have to win. I think Inter will repeat their game plan from the other day. We’re going to have to look like the Bara of the last thirty minutes at home. You have to attack better, there is no margin for error. But it will be a competition again, we will have to prove that we are playing for our lives and that we have to give everything. We want it to be a magical night, people cheer us on , the Iberian manager warned. Ask Robert Lewandowski and his partners not to hide.
