It’s been fun to watch Messi and Neymar though we haven’t gotten to see a lot of them together. The two of them have led Barcelona’s possession attack, and Sevilla midfielder Jairo Samperio knows that and thinks he has a plan to attack Barcelona’s weak spot.
“You cannot compete for possession of the ball when you play Barcelona, so the only possible plan is to sit back, be organised and try and cause them damage on the counterattack, which is their weak point, if indeed they have a weak point.”
Even if you can successfully counter attack you still have to overcome the Camp Nou atmosphere.
“The Nou Camp is one of the most difficult stadiums to go to in the league, because of the size of the team and the players they have, but we are still excited about going there and hope we can get something positive,” he said, via ESPN FC.
