La Liga

Koeman has revealed the strategy he is going to use today against Alaves

Barcelona have gone 11 games unbeaten this season in La Liga. Since the start of the new year, they have not lost a single match in La Liga and they will be looking forward to keeping their fine form against Alaves today. The current Barcelona team are putting the top 4 teams on edge and many have predicted Barcelona to challenge Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid for top honours in La Liga.

But they don't only have sights on La Liga. They are also aiming for the Champions League where they will face PSG in the round of 16 next week. And putting that into consideration to prevent what happened against Sevilla midweek, Ronald Koeman has revealed what he is going to do.

In a press conference yesterday, Ronald Koeman said that he will be resting some first team players. While Trincao, Riqui Puig and Conrad may start, the likes of Pedri, Griezmann, Busquets and probably Messi will either be on the bench or will be rested entirely. It looks risky yes, but our players need to be in their best form against PSG. They have been on the road for most of February and have had matches almost every 3 days.

Hopefully, Barcelona will put on their best performance against Alaves and also against PSG.
