Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez (43) is preparing for the match against Manchester United (Man United).
Barcelona, led by coach Xavi, will play the first leg of the 2022-2023 European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League round of 16 playoff schedule with Manchester United at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain on the 17th (Korean time).
In an interview ahead of the match against Manchester United, Xavi said, “It will be a good game. I think it will be a spectacular match for third party fans. I think both teams are probably in their best form all season. Manager Eric Ten Hag has changed Manchester United. It was difficult at first, but he is doing a great job.” 안전놀이터
He continued, “They are a physically strong and dangerous team. So I want the intensity and high tempo of the players in this match,” he promised victory.
Xavi’s Barcelona are on the rise. Although they were eliminated from the Europa League after being pushed by Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in the “Group of Death” group C in the Champions League group stage, they are making great strides in La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Super Copa.
Currently, Barcelona is on a 11-game winning streak, with 15 wins and 1 draw in the last 16 matches. They have already won the Supercopa by beating rivals Real Madrid. The league also widens the gap as Real slows down, and is currently leading by 8 points. Moreover, the defense that leads to Kunde, Arauho, Christensen, and Balde has settled down, allowing only 7 runs in 21 games in the league.
