Barcelona goes to Vicente Calderón for decisive match against Athletic Madrid
Now the challenge is outside home! Seeking for a place on the Champions League’s semifinals, the FC Barcelona goes to Vicente Calderón for their second duel against Athletic Madrid. The match will take place this Wednesday (13), by 15h45 (Brazilian Time), at the adversary’s home.
Head high and moving on after the 1-0 defeat at Anoeta, against Real Sociedad, on the Spanish Championship, the coach Luis Enrique remains focused with his team on winning his second triple crown.
Despite turning the tides at Camp Nou, on the last game they played against Athletic Madrid, the conquered 2-1 does not guarantee the team on the championship’s semifinals yet, what gives Neymar Jr. and his teammates much more trouble at Vicente Calderón.
We’re not thinking in anything other than the result for the Champions League’s semifinals. Our team is experienced and in the same way that we do not relax by being long time invicted, we do not lose motivation in defeat. Our objective is to go out of Madrid as a classified team”, said Neymar Jr. about the decisive game.
Neymar Jr. is heading for his 14th game against Athletic. The player already scored six goals in his participations against the team. At Vicente Calderón, the number 11 played six times, managing to get three victories, one draw and only one defeat.
