No room for another piece of paper: Xavi reduces the euphoria but Barcelona has no more excuses in the Champions League

The coach said the goal is to reach the group stage, but the reality is very different.

Barcelona has no more excuses. The Barça team will make its debut in the Champions League this Tuesday and do so with the obligation to go far in the continental competition, although Xavi managed to temper the euphoria at the press conference prior to the premiere with Royal Antwerp (Antwerp).

From Tuesday 9 p.m., Barça will start a path up Montjuïc that should lead to where the big teams go: to decisive play-offs and very close to the title. It hasn’t happened in any of the last four seasons, but there is no room for another European failure.

With a squad that suits their needs, the Catalans cannot afford – neither economically nor sportingly – to sign another piece of paper, let alone after how favorable the UEFA draw in Monaco on August 31 was.
