Baptistao is convinced of the potential of the team and warns that "any individual play" will mark the match against Valencia
Leo Baptistao is convinced of the change in mentality that is taking place at Espanyol this season. The forward, who feels "comfortable" with the system that Rubi is introducing, said that "we have a very nice squad to try to do something big. We know we have to improve, that this has just begun".
The forward assumes his new role within the team and said that "last year we finished the season well, but we must look ahead. Valencia is a great team. It has a lot of potential, but we play in our field and we are going to go with a lot of intensity and desire".
He points out that he is not obsessed with getting a certain number of goals, but he is "in helping the team with my work". About Rubi he explains that "he asks us a lot of amplitude in the field in certain plays, that we work hard and that we enjoy. We have some freedom of movement".
In his analysis of the game on Sunday, he points out that "two teams will be very orderly, they will play with the utmost respect. I think some individual moves will be the ones that will mark the game. Whoever comes out with more intensity will take it".
