This weekend the Spanish giants FC Barcelona will host newly promoted side Almeria at Spotify Camp Nou in a match which is most likely the last game in Gerard Pique’s footballing career. Now more than a win, this game is about Pique as all of Barcelona would want to send off their legend in the best possible style and surely make his last game memorable.
However, beating Almeria would be a tricky task cause they are coming into this game in good form as in their last 5 matches they have won 3 games. So they clearly have the potential to pull off a shock result.
But Xavi’s team have been playing sensationally well recently as they have won their last 3 La Liga games and they would be looking to continue on their streak. The Catalan side are currently 2nd in the League table, only behind to their arch-rivals Real Madrid by 1 point after Los Blancos drew against Girona last week.
So they know that they’ll have to win this game in order to stay in the title race and put the pressure back on Ancelotti’s men. All in all, it would be an interesting game vs Almeria and it would be surely a delight to watch Gerard Pique for the last time.
