Lewandowski cash on the state of Barça


By: Manu Tournoux

FC Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski believes that the progress made in recent weeks is due to greater intensity in training.

Lewandowski was the star of FC Barcelona against Atlético Madrid, scoring with a superb rebound and providing two assists for Joao Felix and Fermin Lopez. He was happy with his performance after the match, as he told DAZN Espana. “ Is this the best match of the season? It's possible. I'm not sure of it. But the most important thing is that we played very well from the first minute, controlling the game and scoring three goals on this pitch. A good match. I am very happy, not only for the goal, but also for the two assists. If we play easier, we play better.”

The Blaugrana are now more than 400 minutes of the championship without conceding a goal, their best run of the season, and for the third time in five matches, they entered the final stages of the season with a comfortable lead.

A sparkling form

“I think in the last two, three, four weeks we've changed our training a little bit, with more intensity. Physically, I feel very good. I believe my teammates are in the same state of mind. We want to take a step forward. We have two weeks of international break and we want to do another one after that. This moment is very important. We not only want to win, but also play better. »

This statement of course sparked immediate debate over whether the Blaugrana were not training hard enough for the rest of the season, but with injuries piling up and a busy schedule until mid-February , it's no surprise that they weren't at full strength in training. For this match, FC Barcelona was without Andreas Christensen, Pedri and Frenkie de Jong, all injured, and who had started the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League against Naples.
