Review: Stubborn Barça into Copa semis

AFP/Getty

One of the main characteristics that help identify Luis Enrique’s Barcelona is their ability to bounce back, even when they’re playing badly. We saw that just four days ago against Málaga CF when FC Barcelona arguably played their worst 45 minutes of football this season, but ultimately the three points were won. Tonight’s case was similar, and once again the players’ stubborn character persevered against a desperate Athletic Club that did not have much to lose. Sometimes, it all comes down to whether you possess the spirit of champions or not.

Preview: Athletic never lions at Camp Nou

FCB_ATH_Preview

Thus far Luis Enrique and his legion have navigated the match madness of January wonderfully. Seven matches have resulted in six wins and that 0-0 draw against Espanyol. Tomorrow night FC Barcelona host Athletic Club in the second leg of the Copa del Rey quarter finals holding a 2-1 advantage. The game will not be a walkover yet Athletic are quite a different proposition away than they are in Euskadi. It’s now over 10 years since Athletic took maximum points at Camp Nou, which is what they’d need, and six years since their last draw in Catalonia. Betting against Barça progressing would be foolish.
