After the Champions League week, Barcelona returns to Liga, where it is doing much better than in Europe. Meaning, Messi and his teammates have gone beyond the brightest predictions and the qualification at the Juventus Stadium’s eighth round with a turn in advance (plus the certainty of first place in the group) is its testimony, but in the championship they are really dominating . Just to give an idea, the Catalans have won thirty-four points in twelve games and they already have ten advantages over the rifting Real Madrid rivals. The second place, however, is occupied by a rediscovering Valencia, which is keeping pace and is ahead of the direct confrontation with four points of detachment: so this is a game that will tell us a lot about the future of this League.
Not just football but for Barcelona, because the new coach Valverde seems to have also recorded the defensive phase: very few goals scored.
It is no coincidence that in the Champions League even the last two races played by Catalans in Turin against Juventus and Athens against Olympiakos are even 0-0.
But it is impressive to score the passable goals in the Liga: there are only four of them in the league in twelve league games. A defense of iron …
He also holds the back of Valencia, especially when playing at home: only two networks suffered in six games played so far between the friendly walls.
As we said it is a unparalleled Barcelona that of Valverde, spectacular the right forward but quadratissimo behind: not by chance I finished Under 3.5 the last seven Catalan races in the Liga.
When thinking of Barça, it is inevitable to imagine matches with so many networks. In fact, the hypothesis over 2.5 is the one favored by bookmakers and the share is very low. We go partially countercurrent and we play the Under 3.5 pointing to the strength of the two defenses and the importance of the match that will certainly increase the level of attention of the two teams.
