Ferran Torres has conveyed "the team's ambition and motivation to win against Eintracht Frankfurt". Xavi Hernandez' squad play their Europa League quarterfinal on Thursday, April 7 and the Barça forward repeatedly emphasised the importance of getting a good result in this knockout round first leg.
"Playing in Frankfurt for the first time is special and we want to come away with a win", explained Barça's number 19. "This Thursday is the first step in the fight for the Europa League and we'll give our all to achieve our goal", he added. Thinking about the first obstacle to overcome, Ferran Torres stated that "Frankfurt are in good form, they are a very physical team, and they will make it a very tough game for us". The Valencian forward's goals and contributions are likely prove essential too when it comes to achieving their target, recognising himself that "my role is to score goals and provide assists, but it's important that I help the team".
The omens are clearly looking good for Barça for this match, but the 13 game unbeaten run can't lead to any complacency, and as Ferran said, "Xavi tells us to take each game as it comes, and to approach every game with humbleness, hard work, and desire". The forward sung the praises of his coach, stating that "he made me feel assured from day one, and as a coach, he stands out for his DNA, leadership, and lack of pressure he puts on us", admitting "he has made a real difference in the Club".
The group's development has also been helped by Pedri, who always brings a smile to Ferran Torres, who highlighted that "training with him every day is a treat. He is potentially an era-defining player and is already one of the world's best. He also had a few words about Dembélé as "a player that makes the difference". Individual qualities that improve the collective in the hunt for the win against Frankfurt.
