◼️ Sergio Busquets is confident that the Argentine star will guide Barça to the next round of the international tournament.
FC Barcelona will welcome Chelsea on Wednesday, for the return of the knockout stages of the Champions League, with the advantage of having scored in Stamford Bridge (1-1 the final result) and with the return to the first team of its highest star, Lionel Messi, who had lost the league commitment to Malaga due to the birth of his third child.
In that context, Sergio Busqutes, one of the banners of the Culé cast in the middle of the field, revealed the importance of the return of the Argentine star to the team.
“Physically it will be great”, said the third Barça captain. He added: “He will be even more rested than the rest of us, and he will have the extra motivation to give the first football joy to his new son.”
In the same vein, the midfielder continued: “I hope he keeps the level that he’s having and leads us to the classification.”
In addition, Antonio Conte’s strategy was palpable: “We have to pay attention to Willian, to Hazard and to Pedro if he plays, all his players are important, Chelsea has enough resources to fold back but he also has players to have the ball in the center of the field as above, will dictate the result but I think that at the beginning they will keep the Stamford Bridge plan and then change to one thing or another depending on how things are going “.
On the other hand, he admitted that they shouldn’t relax, despite having obtained a good result in England: “Although the 0-0 is worthy for us we are not a team to speculate and we do not know how to do it In the Premier League there is only one team with options of title but that doesn’t mean that the rest are not dangerous and Chelsea is, because they have great players, a great coach and they’re very hardworking “.
To close, he referred to the alleged message that Neymar had sent his former teammates to return to wear the Barca shirt: “He didn’t say anything to me and even so I wouldn’t tell you, everyone has their opinion, for me it’s a closed topic” .
