One of the mainstay players of Tottenham Hotspur, Dele Alli, looked optimistically at the final match of the European Champions League group phase against Barcelona, even though the match will take place at Estadio Camp Nou. The Catalan giants are believed to be returning to rely on their captain, Lionel Messi in the match later, even so, Alli is not at all afraid of the presence of La Pulga, despite admitting that he is one of his idol players.
As is known, Tottenham Hotspur must package the victory in the last party against Barcelona, if on the other hand Inter Milan win over PSV Eindhoven. Only with this victory, they can get the Premier League’s ticket to the round of 16. Of course, it’s not easy for Mauricio Pochettino’s landing team, especially in this last match they will face Barcelona.
It even more difficult, because the match will take place at Estadio Camp Nou, which is the proud headquarters of the Spanish La Liga champions. Not to mention, Barcelona can be said to be in a positive trend lately. Their flagship players are also in fit condition, including the captain, Lionel Messi.
However, the mainstay midfielder of Tottenham Hotspur, Dele Alli, admitted that he was not at all afraid of the team’s tough challenges at the Camp Nou later. Lionel Messi is indeed the world’s best player and one of his idols, but Alli believes Spurs can win at Barcelona’s headquarters.
“Messi is a player that everyone idolizes because of what he has achieved in his career. For me, Messi is the best player in the world and the game is good to watch. But to be honest, I don’t really care what Barca do with their players.”
“We definitely go there with confidence, we know it will be a difficult match, but Barca is defended by a group of people and everyone can make mistakes. We just have to make sure we punish them and become what we can be.”
“Barca are one of the best teams in the world, they have some great players, and as a kid you dream of playing at Camp Nou. We will go there and show our best performance,” said Alli, as quoted by The Telegraph.
