Ernesto Valverde has appeared in the Joan Gamper Sports City
before the duel against Prague Slavia tomorrow at 6:55 p.m. The Txingurri has
spoken about the statements of Riqui Puig and admits that after the defeat in
the Levante field tomorrow’s game has one more point of pressure.
Prague Pravia: “We imagine that it will be a match similar
to the first leg and the one they played in Inter field. They keep their
hallmark. In their League they are leading. They were about to win in Milan.
They have a great physical display, they arrive a lot in the rival area and we
hope it will be such a match. ”
Difficulties: “When we lost a game I try to find the
football reasons. At the beginning of the season we were not well, especially
away from home. Then we made a three-game winning streak. The other day, when
we had everything on track, we lost it in a minute. We have to ask ourselves
why we have lost and the game relationships that have led us to this.
The other day, in the first half, there is a noise in the area but in the first time they throw us at goal they make us a goal. They squeeze us a little more, but we had to know how to get out of those pressures. We didn’t have the ball enough to alleviate that.
Dembélé: “Everyone has to always look for his place. When
he plays, stay in the position. Just like Ansu, Luis, Griezmann or Piqué. When
he has his choice he will have to try to stay.”
System change: “The possibility of being able to play in
one way or another is always there. Within the possibilities we have, we have
to look for solutions. We need to get on with the ball, sometimes it is hard
for us to look at that last pass that can give us a solution or that breaks
lines in the last section. We have to look for it within our scheme or a
similar one, sometimes we do it. “Luis
Suarez: “It’s not a major injury. I don’t know how much it can be, I don’t have absolute certainty. For tomorrow I think it’s fair. We’ll see for Saturday.”
