Papers: Barcelona face a key challenge at San Mamés
It’s another big day for Barcelona as they travel to San Mamés to face an always tricky opponent at an always tricky venue. However, if they are to finally start moving up the ladder, Ronald Koeman’s troops will have to start winning away from home and in difficult places too.
Mundo Deportivo go as far as saying this is a key battle and a victory could move them as high as third in the table. Of course, that could be easier said than done.
But this is a golden opportunity to win three consecutive games away from home, which is something the team has been struggling with. Unfortunately, this season even the Camp Nou hasn’t exactly provided a safe haven to the Catalans but restoring their edge when travelling away is equally as important.
SPORT, on the other hand, are tackling a different subject this morning. Lionel Messi received another award, this time getting recognised with the ‘Valores Internacional’ prize.
The award was presented by the president of Prensa Iberica, Javier Moll, and the vice president, Arantza Sarasola.
In other news, Barcelona are ready to face their opponent tonight after a small COVID scare. Luckily, all the players have tested negative for the virus and can compete.
