Former FC Barcelona star Patrik Andersson will have a special interest in tonight’s game between Copenhagen and Barça. The member of the FCB defence from 2001 to 2004 forecasts a 3-0 win for Barça.
Patrik Andersson, who lives just over the water in the Swedish town of Malmoe, connected to Denmark
by a bridge, was there to
watch his former team in training at the Parken Stadium
Some of the squad are former team mates of his, including Puyol, Xavi and Iniesta, and
Andersson was also willing to have a word with Barça TV and www.fcbarcelona.cat about the
Patrik Andersson will be watching the game live, and when asked to predict the
score, he went for a 3-0 win for Barça, who he is convinced are the better side, although
“Santin and N’Doye are dangerous players”.
Like other players that have experience of Barça, Andersson only had praise for the
club’s unique style. “I like it a lot” he said. “They’ve got lots of
quality. They play fast and score goals”. A lot has happened to the Swede since he left
Barcelona in the summer of 2004. “The Club has gone through a transition since then. Barça
were unlucky with Zlatan, but I like them a lot with Villa. He scored two against Sevilla, and
that’s good for his confidence”.
Andersson also spoke about Messi, saying that as a central defender himself, he would not
fancy having to cope with the Argentine star. “He is in good form, playing well and scoring a
lot of goals” he said.
