FC Barcelona returns to the Champions League today with a duel against the French ACCS in search of a pass to the ‘Final to Eight ‘. An unprecedented duel in the European competition but in which the participants know each other very well.
In the macro-project of the Gallic club that has caused such a stir in the neighboring country is Ricardinho, one of the best players in the world and former Inter Movistar. Another ex of the Madrid team, now in the ranks of Barça, Daniel, will meet again with several of his companions of the time as Ortiz or the coach of the French team himself, Jesus Velasco.
For this encounter, Andreu Plaza has the casualties of Lozano Y Adolfo. Yes it will be Ferrao that he returned to Cartagena with good feelings. In the ranks of the rival may not be Coelho, sanctioned, although yes Edu, the new signing.
The match is played at the Palau Blaugrana behind closed doors from 9:00 p.m. We will tell you live on Sport.es.
“We were very convinced that this was playing today. We were aware that today would be a long match and we knew how to suffer and reach the goal of being in the Final to Eight”, explains Dídac to the Tv3 microphones.
We review. ACCS took the lead through Edu and Ferrao with one minute to go in the first half scored the equalizer. The final goal came from Ximbinha with five minutes remaining, culminating in a lethal counterattack.
Velasco is already playing it with the goalkeeper-player. All or nothing for Parisians. Less than three minutes left. Coelho enters Barça, first minutes for him, a specialist in these 5 against 4 actions.
Ferrao wants his goal. He left Mouhoudine, who almost missed him, and still managed to get the shot.
Dangerous foul for ACCS. Mouhoudine will serve who will look for Ricardinho. It came to him, he kicked directly, luckily the ball went out but reached the post.
Velasco calls for a time-out, which informs his players that they have already fouled five. He demands patience from his players and marks a possible play for later because he no longer has time-outs.
