This Friday , the FC Barcelona will see the faces with the Bayern Munich in quarter-finals of the Champions League. An eliminatory to only party in Lisbon
No longer there is margin of error. The FC Barcelona plays it to him this Friday to the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) in the Estádio gives Light of Lisbon, in the third party of the final to eight of the Champions League. Paris Saint-Germain and the Leipzig already have won his note to semifinals, whereas the culés will have to surpass to a 'colossus' as the Bayern of Munich to be able to see the faces in front of the victorious of the Manchester City-Olympique of Lyon of the Saturday.
For the FC Barcelona, the Champions League is the salvation. This nail burning to the that it is necessary to hold but that, if finally it dyes of Barcelona, will convert an abysmal season -the culés lost LaLiga, the Glass of Rey and the Supercopa of Spain- in an excellent course. Raise the 'orejona' is the obsession of Leo Messi and of all the barcelonismo from the last championship of 2015 and, with the Argentinian enchufado, the faith keeps .
Little it matters the irregularity that the ones of Quique Setién have showed in the game up to now or that the Bayern Munich give fear with his relentless series of results. To a party, everything equalises and from the changing room of the FC Barcelona there is plot so that the Champions League go back to the vitrinas of the Camp Nou. The faith and the illusion exist. The quality also. Three parties separate to the culés of the glory and the one of this Friday promises to be a war without barracks.
Drops of the Barça and doubts in the system of Quique Setién
Until the moment, the system with which more has enamoured the FC Barcelona is with this 4-3-1-2 that shined against the Villarreal -with Leo Messi of mediapunta and Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suárez by in front- and that also had good moments against the Naples. Nevertheless, in front of the potential of the Bayern of Munich to dominate the game, would not be odd that Quique Setién bet for sacrificing to the French to reinforce the medullary and change to a 4-4-2.
Arthur Melo, with a disciplinary file, and Samuel Umtiti, lesionado, are the two only drops of the FC Barcelona, but it is necessary to take into account that the Cantabrian will recover to footballers very important. Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal, that did not play in front of the Naples by sanction, yes will do it against the Bayern of Munich to form society with Frenkie of Jong, whereas Ousmane Dembélé has received the high medical and could have minutes in the second time.
Like this the things, the possible eleven of the FC Barcelona will be: Marc André ter Stegen in the goal; Nélson Semedo and Jordi Alba in the sides; Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet in the central axis; a centre of the field formed by Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Frenkie of Jong and Sergi Roberto; and a forward with Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. If finally the bet went by Antoine Griezmann, Sergi Roberto or Nélson Semedo would fall of the alignment.
A Bayern of fearsome Munich
It is true that are speaking of two extraordinary teams with formidable players in all the positions, on the paper the Bayern of Munich seems the big favourite. Especially by the moment of form in which it arrives each one of the teams: whereas the FC Barcelona offers doubts in the game and in the irregular results of the season, the Bavarians show a tremenda solidity in every aspect.
Very to take into account is the series that the Bayern of Munich has right now. The team trained by Hans-Dieter Flick does not lose in an official party from the past month of December, moment in which it accumulated two defeats followed: one home to finals of November against the Bayern Leverkusen (1-2) and another out of house, in the field of the Borussia Mönchengladbach (2-1).
However, this series of the Bayern of Munich still impresses more if it mentions that of the 27 parties that played after losing in front of the Borussia Mönchengladbach, the balance has been of 26 victories and only a tie home against the Leipzig (0-0). From this 'trip', have given other 19 consecutive triumphs that have followed after the stop, accumulating 12 victories. A series that intimidates.
The German arms: Lewandowski, Müller...
The Bayern of Munich has a block very conjuntado with a star that despunta on all the other: Robert Lewandowski. This season already accumulates 42 targets in 35 parties (an average of 1,2 goals by meeting) and is to only one to equalise his record goleador with the picture germano, that went the 43 so many of the campaign 2016-17. So much euphoria there is in Germany with him that from some sectors situates him above Leo Messi.
But behind the Polish forward, there is a group that works of solid form and that practises a big football. Thomas Müller, author of 21 assistances and eight goals this season, has turned into a player very solidario. By the bands, footballers like Serge Gnabry or Kingsley Eat contribute the desborde to facilitate them the work to his mates. Men like Joshua Kimmich or Leon Goretzka also are keys in the medullary.
This yes, the technical Hans-Dieter Flick could have two very important drops in the sides: the one of Alphonso Davies in the left and the one of Benjamin Pavard in the right. If finally any of them can play, the eleven Bavarian initial could be: Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Süle, Praises; Thiago, Goretzka; Gnabry, Müller, Eat; and Lewandowski. More difficult to go in has it Philippe Coutinho, yielded by the FC Barcelona, that possibly begin in the bench.
