A mental test

Barcelona wants to join LaLiga after the hard European stick against PSG. Both teams arrive touched and with doubts after their last matches.


Barcelona lives in a cataract of emotions that makes it difficult to specify the real state of the team. Koeman's men go from league euphoria to Champions depression in one word Jesus and this Sunday (Camp Nou, 2:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) they receive a Cádiz who also lives in bipolarity. From being the revelation team that beat Madrid in Valdebebas and Barça in Carranza, now it is a team that has lost its defensive strength and has conceded 15 goals in the last four games (follow the game live on As.com) .

Barça returns to LaLiga after hitting PSG in the Champions League. A bath of reality that the Barcelona coach wants to remedy as soon as possible, especially after Atlético de Madrid stumbled again in the domestic competition.

If Koeman wants to put things in their place, nobody like the rival coach, Álvaro Cervera, to lay the foundations of this duel. On Friday, the Cádiz coach, who along with the Dutchman from Barça is the one who speaks the best at press conferences (and that's how they are doing because both are already on file), said that for Barça the European level can be a problem, but that in LaLiga, they may have the problem.

Cadiz has as much reason to believe as to worry for today's game. The same thing happens to Barça. Cádiz won their last game on January 10 when they defeated Alavés 3-1. Since then, Álvaro's defensive network has been decomposing to the point that one of the best-defending teams in LaLiga has conceded four consecutive wins.

For its part, Barça also knows how the Cadiz team spends them. The last defeat of Koeman's men in LaLiga was against Cádiz in a new festival of individual errors. Since then, Barça has added 29 out of 33 possible points. Now, they both have a mental test.
