Barcelona are billed to make a trip to Valencia on Saturday.
The game is sure to be a tough one even for the La Liga champions, and Nani wants Valencia to cause an upset. Barcelona are in great form and even ruined the return of Pep Guardiola to the Nou Camp in the Champions League. Barcelona defeated City 4-0 with Messi putting up a brilliant display.
However, in the domestic scene, Barcelona has not been as impressive. They sit in fourth place after eight games, and face a tough task defending their La Liga title as other teams are willing to cause an upset this term. They remain favourites to win the Valencia game, but the former Manchester United winger said:
“We have good players and if we are united then anything can happen. If we do things right on the pitch and work hard, then we can do something very nice. We are going to try,” Nani said at a press conference ahead of the game.
“The key to the game is being able to hold on and when we get an opportunity, finish it off well. It was a special game for us and our fans, who will be excited that we can win. We always have the hope of having a good game when we play at home. There is the desire to secure a good victory,” he added.
It would be a difficult affair for the hosts, particularly as they have lost five out of eight games this term. The poor form led to the sacking of Coach Pako Ayestaran. Cesare Prandelli is the replacement and ehe would be hoping to force a surprise win. Nani put in good words for the new manager, hoping for a quick change in the fortunes of the club.
