Emenike takes battle to Barca

Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike is seeking to mark his debut in the Champions League with a win, when his Russian Club Spatak Mosco take on European giants Barcelona today at the Nou Camp.

Emenike scored his second goal of the season last weekend. He stated that he is out to hand Barca  frustration as Spatak try to create an upset.

“ Barcelona are beatable and that is why they have not won all the trophies since inception. No team is invincible and all we need do is to give them a big fight. We are ready for them,” said Emenike

He added that: “I scored at the weekend and that has boosted my confidence even more. When a striker does not hit the back of the net in about four games, there will be pressure, but I kept my focus and the coach as well as the team also kept the faith in me. And so I’m delighted that I was back scoring again.

“I want to keep scoring and I believe I can repeat same feat in Camp Nou to help my team shock the world.

“Getting a goal against Barca will make my day, but victory will take me to the top of the world.

“I have watched Barcelona games several times and I have seen their weaknesses which we can capitalise on.

“And I can’t wait to debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage. It has been my long-term dream. Everybody loves the Barca style but we will take the battle to them.”
