They will ping the ball around and create chances, of course they will. But if we can score a goal then they need 3. And I believe we can score a goal. They may get 6, though, I s’pose (!), but no point in laying down and letting them run riot as they can almost do that unhindered even when we’re trying.
We managed to stop most of the chances tonight with some serious defending. There were some excellent tackles. They also hit the bar, hit the post and put two easy chances wide and another over the bar.
We could’ve been luckier with the bounce twice early on in the area, though, and the goal was a good one. So we can get chances. We just need the run of the ball out there and there could be a chance.
But don’t hold your breath.
I’m flying out on Monday, back on Wed evening. We’ll have a decent break and get some beers and nice seafood grub too. My 5th visit to the Nou Camp. I’ll enjoy it, win or lose.
Up the Chels’.
