Andreu Fontas believes that Barcelona are ‘more dangerous and less predictable’ under Tata Martino, as he outlines Celta Vigo’s hopes of upsetting the Catalans.
Former Barca youth Fontas is set to face up to La Blaugrana on Tuesday evening for Week 11’s midweek round of fixtures.
The 23-year-old does so with respect for his former employers and for their work so far under new Coach Martino.
“I believe that the new Coach has incorporated some things that Barca did not have before, making them more dangerous and less predictable than in recent years,” Fontas has considered this week.
“To win against Barcelona would do our situation very well. It is almost impossible to take the ball from them, almost every team in the world fails to do so.
“We will have to use other weapons to try and hurt them both with and without the ball.
“For me, it will be a very special game because I will face many friends and former colleagues.”
Celta head into the fixture off the back of a remarkable 5-0 win at Malaga to end an uneasy run of form.
“The game at La Rosaleda was the one all the team and the fans needed. This win lifts us up morally and helps us to believe in what we are doing, both for the game we played and the strength of the result.
“But now we must put aside the 5-0 and look ahead to Tuesday’s game against Barca. They are a tough opponent, the League leaders, but we intend to surprise them.”
