Win or nothing :clint:
Also expect a good performance against a young team AZ, but more important would be a win against Valencia before the international break.
We will play without pressure and with confidence, I guess it would be enough for positive outcome ahead of a much more important match on Sunday.

The schedule was really difficult one...If you ask me Valverde comits a mistake with this TeamA-TeamB tactic. I undesrstand we play many games, lots of trips etc. but wouldn't make more sense to rest 2-3 players per game and always field a competititve 11? Even the subs will play better if they are mostly surrounded by starters than by other subs.
...and I therefore understand the decision of the coaching staff. But it is already behind us, and I really expect that Valverde doesn't change so many players in the following matches, starting with the guest appearance in Belgrade.ray:Nevertheless, one should consider that we've had a far trip to Azerbaijan, three games against Barcelona, one vs Real Madrid, the Basque derby and now we have another the CL level team (Valencia) to play against, all this in the first two months of the season.
Aaaaaand Markel is on very good form in the last games and that is great news considering he's been about a year missing.
Tough schedule perhaps but as a side who finished 4th and 7th in the last two campaigns,we should expect to prosper against the best teams..we are one of them!

I thought you said that Markel was missing at the team for a year due to a long-term injury or what, so I was wondering whether the word is about Susaeta or we have someone else Markel at the club.:howler:MIA
Markel always helps in defense, he knows when to play fast and when slow, he always ends the season with a good bunch of assists but.. Do you remember last Susaeta's performance as Sunday? More than a year ago, for sure. There was a time when these performances were quite usual for Markel, seems like he is recovering his best football.
