Ernesto Valverde highlighted the danger that Tottenham posses ahead of the Champions League match this Wednesday (9.00pm CEST), although Mauricio Pochettino's team do have several injuries to contend with. "You always expect the best version of the opponent,” Valverde noted. “We know they have significant injuries, but in any case we know their level and strength in both attack and defence.
"It will be a tough, difficult and attractive game in an incredible scenario but I’m sure the team will play a great match.” The coach also analysed the team's recent games. "In the last week we’ve had problems with results. We want to improve every day and tomorrow we have an important game in which to do so.“
Asked about Luis Suarez, the Barça coach spoke about the great scoring capability of the Uruguayan forward: “He has a good goal scoring record, is a player who gives us a lot and doesn’t go missing."
