Barcelona, ​​forced to react in Wembley – La Provincia

Barcelona, ​​forced to react in Wembley - La Provincia

FC Barcelona visits Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday at Wembley –9.00 pm / Movistar Champions League-, on the second day of the group stage of the 'Champions', with the opportunity to relive the magical nights in that fief before some 'Spurs' very depleted by casualties.[[Follow the Barcelona – Tottenham match live].

Win the Champions League in 1992 and in 2011 at Wembley are two of the greatest milestones in the history of Barca, and although Tottenham is borrowed in the legendary London fief, Barca wants to stop the 'Spurs' and catapult himself reliving those exploits with another triumph.

Barça opened this 'Champions' well with a clear victory over a combative PSV Eindhoven (4-0) at Camp Nou, and winning at home to a diminished Tottenham would put those of Ernesto Valverde in a dream position, as the Inter Milan is a rival to take into account and will play against them in the next day.

The Blaugrana team is not in a good moment, with three consecutive games in LaLiga Santander without winning, losing unexpectedly at Butarque against Leganés (2-1) and drawing against Girona (2-2) and against Athletic Club (1-1) at the Camp Nou.

A bad run of results that has not removed, however, the leadership to the Catalans. And a bad dynamic that can change in Wembley, in a Champions League who saw the last triumph of Valverde, who could revolutionize his team in search of that revulsive.

The locals do not live in any dream of fairies, despite being in the Premier League with 5 wins and 2 losses and to achieve, on the last day, a good win over Huddersfield Town (0-2), or stay alive in the Capital One Cup thanks to the penalties.

And is that Mauricio Pochettino, who will face Barça again reliving the derby as coach of RCD Espanyol, has many casualties and all of importance. Some absences that will change, sure, the accent of your team.
