Former Barcelona player Rivaldo has given his views on the Catalan team before the match against PSG.
“As I mentioned earlier, I don’t think Barcelona will be able to bounce back after losing 1-4 to PSG. The French team is too good to lose the lead,” wrote Rivaldo in a column for Betfair.
“But a win in the Copa del Rey match is important for the team’s confidence and will make them believe that they can do better than they did at Camp Nou.”
“Of course, as a former Barcelona player, I would love to see an epic comeback in Paris, but to be honest, I don’t believe it will happen. For now, I’m just happy with Barca’s excellent response to Sevilla. It’s a good sign.”
“It’s always nice to claim trophies, but winning the Copa del Rey won’t save the season for the club. In my opinion, when the Champions League is almost over, they should be aiming for a league win. They still have a good chance, given that there are a lot of matches ahead.”
“If they manage to win those two titles in such a turbulent season, then yes, I would say it will be a successful campaign.”
