Full confidence and maximum optimism. So face Ruby the derby that this Saturday will measure Spanish Y Barcelona at RCDE Stadium at 20.45. The Spanish coach has no doubt that his team will face the duel with all possible motivation and the challenge of making history that he raised in the dressing room: "This Espanyol wants to make history. These players want to be the first to win Barça in the league in our stadium. Someday someone will write the story and this team has that challenge. "
With all its staff after the medical discharges of Sergio García Y NaldoRubi did not want to give clues about who will play, although he assured that he had the eleven very sharp. In fact, he did not offer his convocation while waiting for a final session on the morning of the match. However, the technician did want to make it clear that his team will try to develop his style and that, if he succeeds, he will have all the options. "If we see the Espanyol before Getafe
it's going to be a very close derby and we're going to have options. We have to exploit our idea and give some surprise, "he said.
We want to have the ball, although we know it will be difficult because of the difficulty of taking it away "
The biggest challenge, therefore, is to recover sensations rather than to annul the rival's game. "We want to have the ball, although we know it will be difficult because of the difficulty of taking it away. There are also things we have prepared to overcome those moments when we do not have it. We do not intensify that we get obsessed, neither by a player nor by the rival. What we have to do is to be that team that we want to be and that in the last matches we have not managed to be ", reflected the blue and white coach.
In this line, Rubi acknowledged that the team must improve in the defensive aspects and face to goal. "These days we have reinforced many aspects of defensive work, because we have conceded many goals. And we are also in a phase in which we are missing to accompany Borja Iglesias in the goal. Interiors and extremes have to help us because we can not depend on the success of a player.
Hernán Pérez already contributed to this before the Cádiz
"Explained the technician.
The key is not just to stop Messi, but to carry out our plan "
Rubi could not stop warning of the danger of the rival, refusing that it is not at its best level. "To have 37 goals in favor in 14 games seems spectacular to me, they have only lost two games. The rival is as always: fearsome. Messi not only can you score a goal, but attend, and you are surrounded by great players. The key is not only to stop it, but to carry out our plan, "he said.
