Copa del Rey El Bara clings to the Cup
LaLiga has become very expensive. The unexpected reliability of Atltico de Madrid forces the Barcelona to consider the possibility that he will never be able to re-engage in the fight for that title. Although the Catalans have managed to get into a positive dynamic, the amount of points lost at the beginning of the course makes it very difficult. Faced with this situation, Copa del Rey acquires a new dimension for culs. It is presented as the shortest way to scratch a title this season.
It may not seem like a big deal for a club that targets the treble every summer, but, with the one that is falling, a joy right now would be very important. Catalans have been in their capes for a long time and raising a trophy will help boost their self-esteem and, probably, give to Ronald Koeman the opportunity to hold office.
Thus, tonight’s meeting acquires the maximum relevance for the Barça team. As it already happened in VallecasEverything points to Koeman not skimping on resources to get through the tie. No rotations. At least that’s the idea that the Dutch have in mind. In fact, as Bara goes through the rounds and depending on the rival, it cannot be guaranteed that the goalkeeper will be Neto. Tintin himself has dropped it at a press conference at times.
Some time ago, even the most powerful teams on the national scene came fearfully to face Granada. A spirit recovered since the arrival of Diego Martinez to the bench of Los Crmenes and that they want to dust off against Bara.
Despite being able to compete against any rival, the baggage of this season against the greats of the League is not positive for the Andalusians. A few weeks ago, Koeman’s men clearly prevailed in the Nazar fiefdom, a defeat that they will try to avenge by getting off the Catalans from the KO tournament
Andalusians and Catalans have hardly seen each other in the Cup, but the last precedent, dating back more than sixty years, was in the final, the only one in history for Granada. The rojiblancos also want to erase that disappointment in black and white with a triumph in high definition that serves to confirm the new status that the Granada club has carved out through work and good results.
Beforehand, the company for Granada already seemed highly complicated, but if you add the losses of several key players in the core to the equation, things become even more difficult. Diego Martnez already had the safe absences of Milla and Gonalons, both injured, but to increase the obstacles the positive for Covid-19 of Herrera and the expected departure of Azeez were confirmed. This low-cost poker compels the local technician to be creative in his approach.
