Mel: "The numbers of Barça in their field scare"

Seville club coach indicated that "brought something there you have to score, it is very difficult to stay at zero", but has warned his team "does not give any points for losing."

The coach of Real Betis, Pepe Mel, said today that his team travels to Barcelona, ​​which measures the champions league, "with the clear intention of scoring" although it is aware that visit the "stadium where he plays the best team in the world and the numbers are there to scare. "

Mel, in a press conference, stated that "brought something there you have to score, it is very difficult to stay at zero", but has warned his team "does not give any points for lost or you miss this date calendar "because it" would be bad professionals. "

Betis coach recalled that a year ago visited the Nou Camp in the Copa del Rey, an occasion in which the Betis "in similar circumstances stood up, and try to do things as well, but the result," he asked, "is not the same (5-0)."

The Betis coach said that his men did not "urge nothing" because they are "in the middle of the table", so play with "the premise of having fun on a grand stage before an audience that understands football" at "If everything goes normal, you win the better, that is Barcelona, ​​but the Betis goes for everything."

For Mel, the game tied for Barcelona against Espanyol "has nothing to do with tomorrow, does not reflect anything" and warned that the azulgranas "play continuously Wednesday and Sunday. Not mislead ever, are used to it" so that "being five points behind Real Madrid certainly do not think the Cup match because they can not forgive League points."

In the same vein, the coach would not refer to Betis next week's derby against Sevilla on the grounds that "give a bad image when you think about skipping the other party. There is a racing game that morning, and no one will think after." (via AS)

Guardiola: “We’ll be competing right up to the end"

The Barça manager stressed at his Saturday press conference that “there are 63 points left to play for and we’d like to believe that we still have a chance to win the league”.


Pep Guardiola is not throwing in the towel in the fight for the league title despite the five-point lead enjoyed by Real Madrid: "People should know that I am convinced that we'll be competing right up to the end. After that, whether we win or not I can't control." However, Guardiola has a lot of faith in his players' ambition: "There are 63 points left to play for – that's a lot of points and my sole objective is to get across to the players that we have to make these 63 points count. We've got a chance so why shouldn't we go for it?"

Right from the beginning of his tenure as first team manager, Guardiola has always asserted that the La Liga is the most important competition. On Saturday, he emphasised this once again: "It's our bread and butter, and it's what keeps you in good shape for the other competitions." That's why he sees this weekend's match against Betis as important preparation for the Cup duel against Real Madrid. But whatever happens in that Cup tie, Guardiola is determined not to be distracted from the league title: "There'll be no time to feel sorry for ourselves. If we don't react well we'll find ourselves out of the race for the league."

Although the Seville based club was only promoted to the 1st Division at the end of last season, Guardiola knows Betis well, having taken them on in last season's Kings Cup. "They've got the same manager and some skilful players - they're good on the offensive." He also compared the Andalus team's style of play with Barça's last opponent, Osasuna: "They've got more combination play, different ways of moving the ball up field, they can unsettle you, they play for each other and the goalkeeper is very intuitive – and they've won their last three".

Pressure on the Barça squad is increasing as Andreu Fontàs and Pedro join Villa and Afellay on the injury list while Keita is away at the Africa cup of Nations and Maxwell has completed a move to French club PSG. However, Guardiola insists that he's not looking to bring in reinforcements from outside the Club: "We'll stick with these players to the end. It's not a good idea to look to the transfer market because new players have to settle in and it costs money. The reserves are the cheapest, most productive and sustainable solution."

Praise for Sergio Busquets

If he gets a run out against Betis, Sergio Busquets will reach a century of league appearances for FC Barcelona. Guardiola handed Busquets his first team debut in his first season as Barça manager. On Saturday he told us: "If I was reincarnated as a player, I'd like to be like him. He's the best defensive central midfielder in the world. Barça has a priceless player." (via FCBarcelona.cat)

Pep appreciate their qualities and despite how much he has already demonstrated both the subsidiary and the first team, the coach will ask for more. Because with a great future ahead , still has much to offer. A curious fact: it takes more goals with the club (two in three games) with the 'B' (one in twelve). (via MD)
