Barca in a ‘Make or Mar’Situation:Pep Guardiola
Coach to the Cartalan club Barcelona,Pep Guardiola has said it is mandatory that Barcelona must win every game left in the Spanish league if they want to lift a fourth consecutive title.
The European Champions are seven points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid who are the league leader right nowhas 55 points, and they will be playing ninth-placed Osasuna on Saturday.
The coach admitted saying”We are in an extreme situation, and we know only one of the three possible results is possible for us to be able to keep fighting until the end,” at a news conference.
Guardiola has promised that Barcelona will fight to accomplish the feat else it will be difficult to achieve as turning the table around to overcome seven points is very hard to come by except fot a miracle.
Guardiola admitted he would have liked to be closer to Real in the league but reminded journalists of Barca’s achievements this season.
They have won three titles and qualified for the King’s Cup final after beating rivals Real Madrid in the quarter-finals and Valencia in the semi-finals.
The stadium where the King’s Cup final against Athletic Bilbao is to be played hasn’t been decided yet, and there is a chance it will be held at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid.
When asked wether he would like to play the match at the home of Barcelona’s fiercest rivals, the Catalan said: “The best thing is that we are in the final. That is the best thing of it all.
That is what excites me the most. The Bernabeu is evidently the best stadium when talking about capacity. It is the best one. But I understand Real Madrid wouldn’t like -if they feel that way- to have Barca and Athletic Bilbao playing there, as people wouldn’t either if Real came here for a Cup final.”
