Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for today is SERGIO ROBERTO SPEAKS ABOUT THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE COMPETITION. I mentioned this in my previous article that I am going to talk about Sergio Roberto’s recent interview in which he spoke about the Champions League. We are going to talk about what he said, and have our thoughts on that. Furthermore, we are also going to discuss Sergio Roberto briefly about how big of a threat he can be in upcoming Champions League games. Therefore, let’s get started and begin with our topic. Sergio recently spoke on the upcoming Champions League games.
“WE ARE THREE GAMES AWAY FROM BECOMING THE CHAMPIONS”
This is what we are going to talk about today. This is what he said in the post-match interview after Barcelona beat Napoli. Sergio Roberto clearly mentioned that the major objective of the team was to travel to Lisbon and they achieved it. Furthermore, Sergio Roberto mentioned that the Champions League is an unpredictable competition and any team can win that. It is a matter of who maintains that winning record and advances to the final. He also talked about Barcelona dominating the game despite having less ball possession.
“It’s not that the team should improve on something in particular. We must analyze Bayern, find their weak points, study them thoroughly… They’re a great team, with great players and it will be a very tough game.” said the Barcelona midfielder. This shows that Roberto is indeed aware of the upcoming threat Barcelona has to face. He is not new to the Champions League, neither is he inexperienced to play in the knockout games of this tournament. Therefore, any comment he gives is going to have its value. However, I would say that there are some managerial aspects which Barcelona needs to consider.
Sergio is aware of the fact that Barcelona is not the favorites of winning this game let alone winning the Champions League. However, he is showing a positive and winning mentality that almost every pro player has. Sergio is sending out a clear message that Barcelona is ready for the challenge and even if Bayern qualifies, they have to earn that victory. Sergio believes that Barcelona can get through 3 more games and so do I.
I agree with almost everything Sergio said in his interview. I think Barcelona needs to be tough and ready for the challenge and they can win the tie. The role of Roberto is also going to be pivotal in this game. He needs to play as smartly as he did against Napoli or even more. I think Barca needs to play as a team and Bayern is going to have no chance against us.
Sergio Roberto can be an authoritative figure against Bayern. I hope he can provide similar performance as his confidence levels. Bayern is going to be a dangerous opponent and therefore, there is not much to predict at the moment. Every player needs to play their best and get the winning result somehow. Only then, Barcelona is going to win the Champions League.
