Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has same his ideal priority, for now, is to clinch the La Liga title on Saturday against Levante, ruling out resting players for next week’s Champions League semi-final clash with the city. Barca can get their hands on a twenty-sixth title if they beat Levante at the Nou Camp and will have the crown bonded before kickoff if Atletico national capital loses to Real Valladolid earlier on.
The Catalans haven’t reached a Champions League final since 2015 however Valverde same turning up to Wednesday’s 1st leg against Juergen Klopp’s aspect reception knowing the league is within the bag may well be a lot of valuable than having recent legs.
“We might make one or two changes but we have four days to rest before Liverpool and winning a trophy could give us more strength on Wednesday and could mean more to us than whether we are tired or not,” Valverde told a news conference on Friday.
“You always have something else in your head when you are playing but I want to separate the two things because of how important it is to win the league. We would like this to be the moment we seal it.”
Barca’s possible league triumph on Saturday would see them collect the eighth title in eleven years, however, Valverde same no-one ought to take his side’s domestic political system as a right, adding that he considers the league to be the foremost vital prize.
“We give a lot of value to the La Liga title, it’s the one you chase all year long, the one which defines your season,” he said.”
“In the Copa del Rey and Champions League your success can depend on tiny margins and certain moments, but in the league, you have to do things right in nearly every game if you want to win it.”
“It has a lot of value and the fact that our club has won it so many times in this space of time says a lot about how hard we work each day.”
