Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil has made blunt comments about Lionel Messi and Antoine Griemann ahead of their La Liga clash at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Alguacil believes that the Catalonia team will be unstoppable if Griemann and Messi hit top form for the club.
The duo has been inconsistent this season and their last game Barcelona managed to record a slim win over Levante.
The form of Messi and Griezmann was under the spotlight in time past but they have put in some decent performance after sloppy display at the start of the season.
“I see Barcelona are in a strong moment,” Imanol said in his pre-match press conference, ahead of the two clubs’ Wednesday night meeting.
“They may be inconsistent, but that’s due to not taking chances.”In all the matches they play, they are creating enough chances to win.
“What happens is they aren’t always hitting the target, but there have been matches where they scored five against Real Betis or four against Villarreal.”I think [Griezmann] is creating a lot, even if he could score more goals.
“Then I think Lionel Messi is still the best player in LaLiga, the one who causes the most disruption.”Barcelona will be unstoppable as they both hit form.”Despite the fact his own defence will need to play well, La Real’s coach is confident of a good result.
“I’m always optimistic, this team always tries to find the solutions to win games, no matter who we’re facing or their approach” he added.”I understand that it might be an open game, but if we overcome their pressure then we’re coming together very well, better than in other years.
