Quique Setién won't be able to have Busquets neither Arturo Vidal against of the Napoli, but yes with a Frenkie de Jong whose contribution can be differential in the fight for this Champions
The Dutch midfield player of the FC Barcelona, Frenkie of Jong, can turn into a key factor so that the Barcelona team finish struggling by the title of Champions League 2019-20. The Dutch player still has not attained to adapt of all to the ecosystem culé, in which it has to exert some functions something distinct of which made in the Ajax of Amsterdam, in a position that neither is exactly the same in which it played.
However, can that the rest and the time to think that it has had in the last weeks, because of the injury that prevented him play the greater part of parties post-confinement, have helped him to assimilate better some concepts in his turn to the dynamic culé.
The Dutch carries already some weeks training beside the rest of his mates, and had of minutes in the two last days of LaLiga Santander 2019-20 against Osasuna and Sportive Alavés. It will be to title with all security in front of the Naples, and Quique Setién expects that it offer the dose of freshness, intensity and motivation that needs the team to prosper in the tournament.
This, without forgetting the jump of quality that can give to the Barça once achieve to give loose rein to his best game. Of Jong has to assume little by little a notable paper in the room of machines, and can that a tournament like the League of Champions, in which has the espinita nailed of what happened the year happened with the Ajax in semifinals, attain to explode all his qualities.
A short but polyvalent staff
Although it is very likely that act like half centre, the characteristics of Of Jong give diverse options to Quique Setién. With Busquets in the field, Of Jong always has acted in one of the two interiors, so much the right like the left. Without Busquets in front of the Naples, his natural position would be the one of mediocentro, but no descarta that it was Rakitic the attendant to exert this paper.
Of this form, Of Jong could have a greater offensive incidence and would not have to do necessarily of anchor when the Barcelona group is attacking, to avoid possible contragolpes. It is in the air, in any case, the alignment that will present Quique Setién to take out the greater possible benefit to the combinations of which has, so much in the medullary as in attack with the possible comeback of Griezmann and Dembélé.
