Rafa Márquez’s men want their second victory away from home to once again aspire to promotion

The blaugrana need regularity in the game and results to close the gap with the play-off

It is time to find the necessary regularity to opt for something more than inhabiting the zone of nobody in the classification. Barça Atlètic is showing itself to be too inconsistent to reach a cruising speed with which to relaunch its candidacy for promotion. He has a good opportunity this Saturday afternoon in Alicante (Sant Joan Sports Center, 18:00), against a team with high aspirations, but which occupies the relegation zone. Collecting the three points would mean achieving the second away win of the season and starting to dream again.

Rafa Márquez, in statements to the official Barça media, assured that “It is not going to be easy, it is a team with important people, with experience, who have invested a lot, but are not going through their best moment”. He also asked his players to maintain “concentration for ninety minutes & rdquor; so that “what happened last game in those first minutes doesn’t happen to us again. You have to keep improving & rdquor ;, it’s over. The Mexican coach cannot count on Nil Ruiz, with discomfort in the elbow of the right arm. Neither will Pablo Torre be there, who, despite being expected to reinforce the subsidiary during the World Cup, did not enter the call.

Barca Athletic: Arnau Tenas, Álvaro Núñez, Pelayo, Chadi Riad, Álex Valle, Casadó, Álvaro Sanz, Txus Alba, Ilias, Barberá and Juanda.
