“Camp Nou is the worst course in the world for our style”

first_imgStatistics leave no doubt. Eibar has visited Camp Nou 5 times and has suffered as many defeats, with only 4 goals in favor, and 19 against. In addition, the ‘nightmare’ not only occurs when you visit the culé fief, but extends to Ipurua. And it is that the eibarreses have not yet won against Barcelona in the First Division, and they only managed to tie in a Gipuzkoan feud in the last match (2-2) of last season (2018-2019) when those trained by Ernesto Valverde were already league champions .“It will be a tremendously difficult game, but we must do our job and give everything, be ourselves. We will see what happens, because the illusion and the dream can not be taken away from us”, the Serbian goalkeeper warned. “Camp Nou is the worst course in the world for the game of Eibar”, Marko Dmitrovic, goalkeeper of the Gipuzkoan team, admitted on Wednesday. The style of the team trained by José Luis Mendilibar, with pressure up and advanced defense, which leaves spaces behind, until now has always been taken advantage of by the squad led by Leo Messi. The eibarreses must suffer before the second classified in the league, a fearsome Barcelona in his fief, where he has not yet lost. “We know that for our style it is a ‘bad’ field to play. But it is a joy to compete against some of the best soccer players in the world. You have to suffer and fight to try to get something positive. “center_img The Eibar of Mendilibar has always acted with courage in the fief Blaugrana. The same will happen again on Saturday. “We do not know how to play backwards. We are not going to change anything. At the Camp Nou it is difficult to score, because we are going to face one of the best rivals, Barcelona, ​​and in such a large and wide field, in which they get out of the pressure very easily. The key will be to press well together, play with great intensity. Eibar players must prepare their lungs to compete for more than 90 minutes, “Dmitrovic said.“From the first minute you have to press well, be compact, and take advantage of the minimum chances that we will have. In addition, we must try to avoid individual errors that are penalizing us in the last days,” said the doorman. He referred to the last duel played with defeat against Alavés (2-1) in Vitoria.Last week he could not play Eibar when the duel against the Royal Society in Ipurua was suspended due to air pollution due to a fire from a landfill in Zaldibar (Bizkaia). “Due to bad circumstances, the Sunday derby was suspended. It has been a rare week, but we are looking forward to Saturday’s game.” stressed.A few weeks ago Quique Setién arrived on the bench in Barcelona to replace the late Ernesto Valverde, who was the leader, although tied for points with Real Madrid. Now, the Catalans are second, to a point of Madrid. “When a new coach arrives you need time to catch their ideas, strategies and different movements. Maybe now they do not dominate as much as in the first round, but surely in a couple of weeks they will be playing as their coach wants,” he ventured.Eibar-Real Sociedad TicketsThe Competition Committee of the Royal Spanish Football Federation confirmed Wednesday the new date of the Eibar-Real Sociedad postponed last Sunday, which will be held on Tuesday, March 10 in Ipurua from 20 hours.Tickets purchased are valid for the new date.
