Barca begins Wednesday reconquest of Champions which last won three years ago and is expected in the environment with special pleasure. "If we were to win it every two years would be very strong," Pique told while Luis Enrique would not be marked expectations ahead of time. "The goal is to add entry points and go see The expectation is to be the best team, getting better .. . "

APOEL shines at the Camp Nou as a rival as less suitable for European road start off right. "We will fight for everything, but not trust anyone" warned about the coach, who made ​​it clear that "I scratch more or less nervous in the match against Athletic, because we prepared the game with all the intensity, as always . it's just another game. "

One more game, the first in the race to be the best team in Europe for a while "long" in the words of Luis Enrique and putting on stage, as an opponent, possibly more affordable rival to the entire group stage.

Give it to think that the club could move 11, opening the door of ownership paragraphs players in the last game and you could even think about a change in goal, giving the option to officially debut at Ter Stegen.

If we are intense and a high rate probably achieve victory" sentenced Luis Enrique, as spokesman what is understood between the template.


Barca seeks escape from outside pressures, including fixed by now what might happen in the duel between Ajax and PSG to focus on his own path. APOEL never played at the Camp Nou but his Cypriot preceding AEK and Apollon were defeated Barcelona.

The Argentine is below 1 goal in the Champions League Cristiano Ronaldo and Raul and 4 record in the competition. 67 goals against numbers 68 and 71 are unusual and suggest that the Flea, gold against the assistant Athletic on Saturday can attack the goal of the Cypriot team with ambition.

In fact, the presence of a rival of Cyprus returns a memory display Maradona against Apollon in 1982, when he scored 3 goals and 2 in 1996 Nazario Ronaldo scored against AEK. Leo, with records to a step, you could join the party staged its predecessors.

All this, of course, assuming that the club starts its path in the Champions League with a victory that is contemplated as nonnegotiable as clear.
