Preview: FC Barcelona vs Rayo Vallecano (game 28 liga 2012/13)

19 Mar

Following the splendid 4-0 victory over AC Milan in the Champions League Barça return to La Liga tomorrow night (Sunday 9 pm) with a home game against Rayo Vallecano. The Blaugrana will be without captain Carles Puyol who underwent a operation on his right knee on Friday night that will see him sidelined for at least four weeks, while Xavi Hernandez will also miss the game with a thigh strain.While the win over Milan showed what this team is capable of, it also raised the question of why couldn’t the players perform at the same level against Real Madrid and the first game in Milan. There may have been tactical errors and some bad luck involved in those defeats but it is quite clear that the level of pressing was nowhere near that shown on Tuesday night.
