Match Details:

Date: Monday, 10th April 2023

Time: 09:00 pm CET

Venue: Spotify Camp Nou

Competition: La Liga Santander

Matchday: 28

Match Overview:

FC Barcelona remain adamant upon acquiring that much-desired La Liga title that would truly symbolize the birth of a new Barca generation. One that is able and willing to compete for silverware, and what better way to start than Xavi Hernandez’s first full season in charge.

The Garnet and Blue next face Blanquivermells in their upcoming La Liga Santander fixture, partaking in their 28th outing in the campaign. This Catalan derby sees La Blaugrana at the very top of the table take on their Catalan opponents who sit just outside the top half of the standings at 11th.

Barcelona dominate not just the league on points, which in itself is a mightily impressive tally of 71 points from a possible total of 81 points, they also dominate it in terms of being the best defensive unit with their rigidity and ability to minimize the goals they concede. Having conceded only 9 goals throughout the league season thus far, they possess the best tally in terms of the least goals conceded across the top 5 European leagues.

The Catalan Giants have been immense in the league altogether, and could potentially be on the verge of breaking numerous historic records should they be able to continue their fine form in La Liga. FC Barcelona currently have 4 wins and 1 loss in their previous 5 La Liga Santander outings.

A win against 11th-placed Girona would see them capitalize on second-placed Real Madrid’s stumble against Villarreal, with Los Blancos losing 3-2 to the Yellow Submarine led by former Barcelona coach Quique Setien.

In the case of Girona, it has not quite been the same level of smooth sailing. The team has had 2 losses, 1 draw, and 2 wins in their last 5 games. Moreover, they have managed to win just 9 games in total this season in the league, a demoralizing feat that is amplified by the fact that they have never successfully been able to defeat Barcelona in any official outing in La Liga before.

A massive result against Barcelona could just lead them to identify and regroup themselves for the remainder of the season. And in Barca’s corner, a win would see them skyrocket to 15 points above arch-rivals Real Madrid.

A high-stakes match in its own right, a massive win for either side would respectively benefit their set objectives. Regardless, even despite the handful of absentees, this game should have Barca’s name written all over it and should be theirs to lose.
