Personality the key for Granada

Granada boss Lucas Alcaraz feels his team must ‘show our personality’ in Saturday afternoon’s clash with Barcelona.

The Andalusians have won their last two games, against Levante and Malaga, but Alcaraz says his players must stand up and be counted if they want to take anything away from the Camp Nou.

“The key is to show our personality and maintain that to the maximum, because the better the opponent the less you are allowed to do things,” Alcaraz told gathered media.

“We must go there with the intention that these things form part of our identity and that must come across during the game.

“We have to concentrate on the match as a whole and believe we can develop our own game within it.”

Barcelona have a string of absentees, including Lionel Messi, Victor Valdes and Xavi Hernandez, but Alcaraz refused to be drawn on whether it would have a negative impact on Tata Martino’s team.

“I don’t want to give any opinion regarding their injuries. The only thing we must worry about is what we do ourselves.

“The better we are able to perform the more chance of things going our way.”
