Despite the elimination of FC Barcelona from the group stage of the Champions League, the club has absolute and total trust in Xavi Hernandez. The board is patient, considering that the team is under construction. Moreover, the squad lacked significant casualties. Furthermore, the club has been harmed by some bad arbitration. We saw that in Milan especially and also in Munich.
The message is to focus on The league. Madrid is only three points up. That is the goal and the motto. To give peace of mind to Xavi in that sense to look towards the future. The club doesn’t want to overthing about this topic. We already saw the Barca not ready yet Champions after the double duel against Inter. The efforts from the club are focused on what it can dispute and agree with the coach what is needed for the next winter market. Reinforcing the team to end up competing for all for all the titles: The League, the Cup, the Super Cup and also obviously Europa League, which is not made any kind of disgust, far from it.
Regarding the elimination in the group stage of the Champions League, according to the club, was already assumed from the match vs Inter. The options were very scarce and it was confirmed vs Bayern is that the Champions It is very demanding. Understanding that it is a team under construction, it is not yet in the select group of contenders to win the title.
No yet ready to comptete
It became clear that the Barca is an irregular team still lacking, especially on the physical level. From the highest spheres they consider it key that in the disputes there was inferiority and especially in the shots on goal. There was always a player from the rival team who blocked the shots of Barca. It came to the point that none of them finished between the sticks. Every time the defenders of Bayern blocked the shot. There was the verification that the team suffers on a physical level with certain rivals. Especially in the midfield, where the fight for the ball is clearer and where the team, unlike in Munich, suffered a lot against the Bayern at Camp Nou.
Now, the very clear objective is to win the league. It is intended to carry out the next matches and get the three points against Valencia, Almeria and Osasuna. Theorefore, the aim is to keep chasing Madrid until the World Cup, or even take the top spot if ‘Los Blancos’ happen to stumble in a game. The goal is to reach the break maintaining the difference that there is now or even reduing it.
During the stretch of the World Cup, the technical staff will be able to face the winter market. They want to plan with the peace of mind while having that position in the League. Furthermore, they want to avoid the rush that there was last season at this point to reinforce the squad.
