FC BARCELONA vs RCD MALLORCA
Camp Nou (Barcelona) | Thu, Jan 5 | 21:30
3 steps far from the glory. We're in the semifinals of the Copa, we have the chance to reach yet another final in our history. We can not fail.
The team must know that these situations do not happen that often. Minor tournament? This is what many people say until they realize that the fans respond when this competition reach this point. The newspapers talk about it, the fans start to move to get a ticket for a possible final, the rivals fear to see us rising a trophy. Minor? No, important.
To take this game seriously is to take our history seriously. 24 Copas shine in our museum and 11 years are too long, we need to fight for it again.
It will be important to achieve a good result in the first leg in order to avoid surprises and stupid extra efforts. If we already did an effort to reach the semifinals, it is a must to increase the level of exigence in this point. It'll be great to seal the ticket to the final in our home game. Let's hope to achieve a good result, not receiving away goals.
We have a date with history.
