Barca is facing a personnel crisis for Champions League

Injury and a penalty card could cost Barca up to three key positions after a 1-1 draw at Napoli’s Champions League Stadium on February 25.

Busquets and Arturo Vidal, because of a card, will be absent when Barca reunite with Napoli in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 at the Nou Camp on March 18.

Busquets received a yellow card after 49 minutes for kicking in the ball under Dries Mertens. But this card means that the Barca midfielder has enough penalty cards, and therefore, will have to sit out in the second leg.

Vidal was shown a yellow card for dissent after a dispute with left-back Napoli Manuel Rui on the 89th minute. But due to the reaction, Barca midfielder was penalized by the referee Felix Brych for a second yellow card, indirect red card.

In stoppage time, Gerard Pique got hurt after a block in the penalty area. The Barca center-back grimaced and rolled to the field because of the pain in his left ankle, then replaced with Clement Lenglet shortly thereafter.

Barca is waiting for the evaluation of Pique’s injury department. In the worst case, the center-back may have to miss El Clasico at Real Madrid on March 2, and the second leg against Napoli.

The defending champion La Liga is truly becoming a miniature hospital with a total of 29 injuries and 16 players affected since the start of the season. The three most injured players are Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Ousmane Dembele. Each player has three times. The most serious cases were Neto (broken left arm), Suarez (knee) and Dembele (hamstring). All three players have to go to the operating table and take a long rest.

Barca currently has only 18 players from Team A that are fit to play. When needed, coach Quique Setien was forced to call some more players from the B team such as Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig, or Alex Collado. The Nou Camp host has three rare players who have not yet worked with the doctor, Frenkie De Jong, Antoine Griezmann and Sergio Busquets.

However, Busquets, in all circumstances, Barca will still fight hard for the goal of victory.





Experience when betting on UEFA Champions League (Part 2)

You can choose a sports newspaper or a reputable betting house, which is always updated with the latest and accurate information about the teams. It could be the starting line-up, the injured player, or the suspension due to the accumulation of two yellow cards that made the key talents unable to play in the next match.

Consider whether it reduces the team’s chances of winning, affecting how to adjust your bet accordingly. Stay tuned to the end so that no sudden changes will rob you of your win.

The results of the team’s domestic competition also affect the results of betting money

That team’s performance in domestic leagues is also important, because if they play poorly in a parallel tournament, the Champions League will no longer be a top priority. Even if they are in the top 3 of domestic leagues, you have to pay a little attention to their recent matches.

For example, a few days ago when they had just had a tough battle with a heavy opponent that consumed a lot of energy, it is very likely that in the short time the players can not recover in time to perform well in the upcoming Champions League.

And let’s not forget the exceptions, the big teams like Barcelona, ​​Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are completely capable of playing enthusiastically until the end of the season of the big leagues going on in parallel.

The venue is a certain stadium, which is also a factor that governs the outcome of the match. Usually a team will be much more comfortable playing at home, because here they have the 12th player that is a passionate home supporter. In the Champions League, there are always fierce confrontation teams, “rivals”, who hate to be guests on the opponent’s court.

Especially for the cases where the fans have a hostile attitude, threatening a certain player. For example, when the player Luis Figo came to play on the Nou Camp after a transfer from Barcelona, ​​he was under great pressure to play because the fans criticized him. “Government” stadiums such as Old Trafford, Camp Nou or Anfield, the away team can hope for nothing more than a draw. Holding peace was a great comfort.
