Next Sunday, Barça and Girona will face each other at the Olímpic Lluís Companys. Míchel’s men will be ahead in the overall standings. They are joint-top of the league with Real Madrid and have four points more than the Blaugranas after a brilliant start to the season that has seen them lose just one game and draw two in the first fifteen days of the league. They also qualified for the round of 32 of the Cup after coming back against Orihuela (2-5).
Exactly after the cup game, Portu, one of Girona’s attackers, spoke about the game against Barça and made it clear that they will travel to Montjuïc without fear of Xavi’s Barça. “The classification says that we are very balanced. We’re at the top and if we’re like this on matchday 15, it’s because we’re doing things very well. The team reacts well and we don’t have to be afraid of Barça. We’ll go to Montjuïc to play one-on-one and anyone else who can“said the attacker.
Portu, who is completing a second leg in Girona, assured after the cup game that they will plan a game against Barça in which they want the ball and want to play in attack, just as Míchel always asks of his players: “I don’t have one .” Magic ball, but what I’m going to say is this This team is always at full strength. He never looks at where he is playing or who he is playing against. We will go to Montjuïc to play our game. The coach will go to the death with his idea of always attacking and the team will give their life as they do in all games“.
