Genaro Gattuso does not have lesionados to Maksimovic and Manolas, whereas in the FC Barcelona are not to the one hundred by one hundred Lenglet, Umtiti neither neither Araújo, that suffered a sprain of ankle in the last party of the playoff of promotion with the Barça B.

To a week and average for the party, so only Gerard Hammered and Kalidou Koulibaly will be to the best physical level, waiting for that go recovering effective with the step of the days.
