Rack is on a distinguished road

We have a tough mini-Everest now in December with a tricky away game versus Almeria sandwiched in between hosting 2 heavyweights in Barca and Valencia.

I don't see any reason to be hugely optimistic for this game. Barca will play as they always do. 95% of the time, that is good enough to beat our side.

Danny is absolutely spot on with how we need to approach this match. We need to employ a high tempo, pressing game (English style) for the full 90 minutes if we are to have any chance. Even if we do that, we must then hope to have luck on our side. It is no coincidence that Bilbao, Valencia and Osasuna have displayed those tactics against Barca this year and were successful. If Lotina tries anything different, we could be destroyed.
