Barcelona welcomes Sporting Gijon to their Camp Nou fortress on Apr. 23 at 2.30 p.m. EST in a HUGE game in La Liga. The Catalans need to keep winning because they’ve got rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid breathing down their necks. Can they handle the pressure? Click here to watch the live stream and find out!
Barcelona‘s recent capitulation in La Liga, which saw them lose three games in a row, has opened up the title race for rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid. With just one point separating the top three, it’s all to play for in the run in. Barça will want to keep up the pressure on the chasing pack with a win against Sporting Gijon. Click down to watch the live stream to see if they can do it!
Now Barcelona are always going to be a difficult team to defend against. With the world’s best footballer Lionel Messi, Uruguayan hot-shot Luis Suarez and Brazilian dribbling wizard Neymar, they can be too hot to handle when that trio is on their game. In fact, they’re pretty much unmatchable.
But it’s defense where Barcelona has the biggest problems. Shakira‘s gorgeous man Gerard Pique has struggled this year at the back, and that hasn’t been helped by the fact they’ve rotated between goalkeepers Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo. But still, when you can outscore the opposition why do you need a defense or even a good goalie!
In their last game, Barcelona showed exactly why they are the most feared team in world football by smashing 8 goals past Deportivo de La Coruña. Luis was the master that night, scoring 4 of his team’s goals. Barça will want more of the same from him.
After their destruction of Deportivo de La Coruña, Barcelona are focused once more on their title push. This should be another convincing win for the Catalans.
