Luis García: "It's best to be yourselves against Barça"

"We have to treat it as a normal game. There'll be moments when we sit back, because they often don't let you come forward, and they block you perfectly. We have to try not to change."

Luis García: "It's best to be yourselves against Barça"
Luis García

Getafe coach Luis García has summed up how difficult it is to approach a match with Barcelona, his team's opponents on Sunday.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference, García said: "I heard [Osasuna coach José Luís] Mendilibar say that if you try and put pressure on Barça you will leak goals, but if you put ten men behind the ball, you won't have a shot. He's right. We have to treat it as a normal game. There'll be moments when we sit back, because they often don't let you come forward, and they block you perfectly. We have to try not to change.

"In the Bernabéu we were very good in the first half, but there's no exact formula when you play those teams. In recent years, forgetting about Real Madrid, the only teams that have got results at Barcelona have sat back.

"It's best to be yourselves. And we play with offensive players and we are not going to change. A few years ago I brought a team here and we sat back and we still lost. You never know."
