Later on tonight, Barcelona will face Real Sociedad in the semifinal of the Spanish Supercup. As much as it may be tough to hear, this competition could be the Catalans’ only chance of silverware this season so the team is ready.
SPORT even state that Barcelona are hungry for titles, having missed out on trophies in 2019/20. For that reason, we may very well see Ronald Koeman use his gala XI tonight.
Lionel Messi, of course, is the biggest star of the competition, just like almost any other, and will be gunning for more goals. Currently, the Argentine sits on 14 but will certainly look to add to this tally.
In other news, Joan Laporta reportedly pushes for the election not to be postponed and wants a meeting with the temporary board to discuss the matter.
Mundo Deportivo are focusing on transfer news, seeing how we’re already deep into the January window.
According to their exclusive information, everything is ready for Eric García to be Barcelona’s first new signing this winter. The Catalans could bring the young centre-back to the club for a fixed price of five million euros.
The player, at Koeman’s request, has already agreed to re-join the squad and all that remains now is the approval of the presidential candidates.
