Pay per head sportsbooks learned that Gerardo Martino, Barcelona coach, feels responsible for his side’s struggles in a poor campaign.
On Sunday, Barca came from behind to clinch a 2-1 home victory over Athletic Bilbao, with Pedro and Lionel Messi scoring as they partially atoned for the Copa del Rey final defeat to Real Madrid – a loss that disappointed many fans and pay per head sportsbooks.
The victory kept the Catalan giants within four points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid and put an end to a run of three consecutive losses after their UEFA Champions League defeat to Atletico as well as a shock reverse to Granada that price per head services won’t forget any time soon.
Pay per head sportsbooks can see that for the first time since 2007-08, Barca are in danger of ending the season without a major trophy, and the coach will be disappointed if he and his campaign at Camp Nou end with nothing.
“The least we can do is engage with the hope of winning,” said the Argentinian. “Now we need Atletico and Real Madrid to fail.
“If we win the league it will make a difference but I don’t think it will change my opinion. I am picky and so I raised the point that Barca usually win and after I’ve arrived they don’t win, and that I feel responsible.”
On Tuesday, Atletico will host Chelsea in the last four of the Champions League as they look to claim the double.
Pay per head sportsbooks know that on Sunday, Diego Simeone’s players will then visit Valencia in the league, but Martino dismissed suggestions that the capital club could be affected by fatigue following their exploits.
