Bravo: “The whole team deserves credit”

Bravo: “The whole team deserves credit”

Claudio Bravo has been on a hell of streak of clean sheets. After Saturday’s 3-0 win against Eibar, the Chilean’s record goes further to 720 minutes without slipping in a goal. Bravo was a guest on Barça TV’s ‘El Marcador’ where he spoke about the importance of the team going forward. “The thing that makes me happiest is winning, although I’m not completely ignoring the shutout streak. My job is to keep the other team from scoring. Eibar almost got one tonight but we won a tough match.” More from Bravo after the jump.

Match Preview: FC Barcelona B – AD Alcorcón

Match Preview: FC Barcelona B – AD Alcorcón

Barcelona B managed to put an end to a worrying run of losses last week with a goalless draw against Racing de Santander at El Sardinero, but the team still couldn’t secure victory. It’s been more than a month since Eusebio’s men won in the league, and today’s game against 11th placed Alcorcón, a team with the same points as the blaugranas, provides the perfect opportunity to return to winning ways. The reserves’ recent home form has been worrying, but there is no doubt that Eusebio’s young squad can grind out a win over a side that is pushing for promotion. Read more…

Match Review: FC Barcelona 3-0 SD Eibar

Match Review: FC Barcelona 3-0 SD Eibar

One analyzes the process, not the result. It’s a widespread, deeply ingrained yet erroneous mindset doing it the other way around. I didn’t fret for one second tonight that FC Barcelona would walk away winners. There was nothing frustrating or lacking in the first half, it was simply sport, where not everything comes off and inches and microseconds may as well be miles and hours. That’s why one trusts the process. Barça were exceptional in the opening 20 to 25 minutes tonight. One could highlight the ferocity of ball recovery (certainly fulfilling Pep’s 6 second rule), relentless pressing, the speed of passing and movement and several outrageous mig tocs, and all would be correct. But really it was the steely focus, the intense concentration and unmissable pursuit of excellence. It took a bit of luck in the first and then a lot of class in the second to eventually slay a commendable Eibar 3-0.

Luis Enrique: “Totally focused on getting the 3 points”

During his press conference on Friday, Luis Enrique talked about many topics and stressed that the team is ready to earn the three points against SD Eibar on Saturday at the Camp Nou. “I’m only worried about the next opponent, Eibar, and their potential. They’re playing well and could create problems,” said Enrique before adding that he only sees eagerness in his players eyes. “I haven’t seen anything like distractions or players relaxing. Not based on their training. One thing is whether or not they play well.” The coach then added that the players are “totally focused on getting the three points. Records will eventually fall, but we just want to win.” More after the jump.
