Xavi praises Robert Lewandowski. Barcelona hero must wait –
The Barcelona hero has to wait
Vitor Roque, a competitor to Robert Lewandowski in Barcelona’s attacking lineup, became the team’s hero in the last match after scoring the winning goal against Osasuna. According to Spanish media, the Polish player – at least for now – doesn’t have to worry about his place in the squad. The local press predicts that the captain of the Polish national team will play in Saturday’s match against Alaves.
It was the first goal for the 18-year-old Brazilian for the Catalan team. In that match, Robert Lewandowski once again performed averagely, sparking speculation about whether coach Xavi would opt for a change in the attack and field Roque at the expense of the Polish sniper. However, according to the newspaper “Sport,” that is not expected to happen.
The predicted lineup for Saturday’s game against Alaves (at 18:30) includes the Pole in the starting eleven. “He trains, asks me how he can help. And we also want to help him.
We need to provide him with more balls to better exploit his position on the field. Lewandowski constantly wants to develop,” praised Xavi at the pre-match press conference. This way, the Bosman supports the player who hasn’t scored a goal in the Spanish league since December 10th.
“He has improved his physical condition. The goal he scored recently will help boost his confidence, but we have to be cautious with him. He needs minutes to get into form,” stated the coach.
Alaves has won their last three league matches. “It’s going to be a tough game. The opponent plays with incredible intensity.
They are currently in a good moment, and playing at home, they are very dangerous. But we need three points,” summarized Xavi. *Thank you for reading our article to the end.
