Manolo Jiménez, coach of Real Zaragoza described his team's opponents for this weekend, Barcelona, as "like a naughty kid that takes the ball off you and doesn't let you have it." The Zaragoza boss explained in a press conference that his team will go to Barcelona with "ambition and the will to have a good match."

The Andalucian coach noted that when teams face Barça they have to be conscious that athough they don't intend to stay back, they end up doing it in response to the way the 'azulgrana' side play. On this point, he stated that he heard the criticism of Celtic for their defensive game, but pointed out that teams don't usually hang back against them; it's Barcelona that force them back.

Jiménez stressed that the gameplan in Barcelona will be the same as when Zaragoza visited the Santiago Bernabéu, keeping the ball and denying the opponents possession. But, he added that against the Catalan side it'll be difficult because they have "great security in passing and a mathematical transition from flank to flank." Nevertheless, he's told his players that it's not impossible to beat Barcelona at their stadium and he gave them the example of his own success there as a coach. "It's very difficult but it can be done. You have to come on to the pitch to enjoy it. If we go out with fear and doubts we'll lose because Barça have no mercy."

He also highlighted that to get the hypothetical win the Real Zaragoza players will have to have "a 10-out-of-10 attitude", and they'll need to give more than usual, "120 percent."We have to give it everything and hope that they're not so clinical. If we give 100% and them too we'll lose but if they're not totally on their game we can win", he said.
