Xavi and Barcelona look great this season. It seems that the Catalan team finally looks compact and that they are ready for big things. Already tonight, they will have a difficult away game in Portugal, considering that they will play against the strong Porto.
Last season, Barcelona did not make a name for themselves in Europe, and many people remember the Europa League match when Barcelona was kicked out by Manchester United. We don't mention this match without reason. Namely, during an interview with Mundo Deportivo, Xavi revealed which player was the most difficult for him to stop during his managerial career in Barcelona; ‘Rashford cost us a lot.
Also Vinicius, [Karim] Benzema. ’- Xavi said, as quoted by METRO!
Marcus Rashford and his form: Erik ten Hag believes in him
Marcus Rashford is far from the right form this season. The English winger is not able to show what he was able to do last season.
Many are confused and hope that Rashford will be better. During the press conference before the match with Galatasaray, Erik ten Hag answered a reporter's question about why Rashford is struggling. The Dutchman had a clear answer;
"The facts are that he is not scoring at this moment but also he had opportunities.
For instance, the game against Brighton, he had five or six occasions that he was in a very good spot. If he works hard and if he invests every day, and goes into every game with the right focus, and if the team around him supply him and help him with movement, it will come.
Marcus Rashford is a player who is always capable to score in every game. When he is coming in the right spots, he will score."- Erik ten Hag said. Tonight, Rashford will have the chance to silence the critics and show that he is still a great player. Many believe that it is time for Rashford to start playing the way he knows how.
