After long international break, club action has finally returned. Cules, all around the world are optimistic for the game against Malaga. FC Barcelona face Malaga at home and this game is probably the most important game of the season. It’s not about difficulty but it’s about the time we are having this game. With the international break only looming in March, this game will have huge impact on the motivation of the players. This is the right time to build up the momentum which we hope to continue for the rest of the season. Losing a single game from now on can cost us a title. So, with this crucial game we all hope the team builds up the necessary momentum. The upcoming games are pretty tricky and difficult. We face Celtic away which has always been difficult for us and we can’t ignore the way they are playing under Rodgers. And then, we visit Anoeta, the cursed visit. This game against Real Sociedad is probably the hardest game for Barca to win. It doesn’t matter how Real Sociedad are playing but they always manage to deny us three points. In fact, we have not won against them since the time of Pep. Shocking, isn’t it? And then, we face Real Madrid. We all know what this game means. So, the importance of the game against Malaga cannot be undermined.
- Key game for Alcacer to step up as he will be starting.
- Key game for Denis Suarez and Masche to continue the wonderful performances against Sevilla.
- Pique will probably be rested for the game against Celtic as he recently returned from the injury and is fragile.
