Barcelona's focus on Spanish League

The defeat of Barcelona from Ciudad Real in the Palau almost definitely closed the door on the quarterfinals for the Catalonians.

The defeat from Ciudad was the end of all the hopes for FCBIt would be a miracle for the former team of Manuel Cadenas to reach it now, but now it will be Xabi Pascual to take the control over the team and the situation.

Pascual knows how difficult qualifying would be:

“I’m proud of my players, who did everything in the CL, but now we must focus on the Asobal League. We have to strengthen our position in this competition and we have to change our mentality,” said Barcelona coach.

The coach believes that Ciudad are among the biggest favourites for the Champions League trophy:

“Ciudad Real are very good at the moment, they are playing in good form. At the same time, we are trying to stand up from a difficult situation. Anyway, I’m convinced that the players give all they can on the court,” Pascual said.

In theory, Barcelona would need to win all three games left and hope that the other results are also favourable.
