Almeria coach confident ahead of Barca clash

The Real Madrid legend believes they could manage to surprise the Catalans at the Camp Nou.

“Playing in this stadium is a global showcase and the players don’t need to be motivated, because they already are,” Sanchez announced to AS.

“It’s one of the most complicated and difficult games of the season. Playing against Barcelona, particularly away, is risky, but we will try to surprise them. It’s difficult to envision winning against Barcelona, but it’s not impossible.

“Espanyol surprised them last season with an excellent approach. It’s a good reference point, but we must have faith, hope and trust, and work very hard as well.”
