The eighth of final of the Champions League every time are more near and the FC Barcelona will have to arrive the best possible to this gone in which it will confront to the Naples of Gennaro Gatusso. The culés will play in front of the napolitanos in his stadium on 25 February and will receive them to contest the turn on 18 March in the Camp Nou. It expects that it was a duel complicated, but the Barça looks forward to to surpass to the Italians and reach the quarter-finals.

Of face to this eliminatory and to what subtracts of tournament, the Barcelona have decided to inscribe to three footballers more than the filial in the smart call To of the Champions. It treats of Rey Manaj, new leading centre of the B, Akieme and Kike Saverio. The club has taken this decision for having lost recently to Carles Pérez, Carles Aleñá and Jean-Clair Todibo in this past market of signings of winter. The three players of the B will substitute them and could go in in the list of summoned if Quique Setién estimated it timely.

It is necessary to signal that in this list To appear all the members of the first team, but also others of the filial that could not be in the list B. Hiroki Abe, Ronald Araújo and Sarsanedas also are in the To from does time because they do not fulfil with the requirements to be in the B. For this, is necessary to carry three years or more in the quarry and be lower of 21 years. In this case, neither these three footballers, neither Manaj, Saverio and Akieme fulfil with the required.

The Barcelona, therefore, will be able to throw of these players for what remains of League of Champions. Manaj Has been chosen definitely by the position that occupies in thefield . The Barcelona do not have right now to any '9' pure in the staff by fault of the injury of long length of Luis Suárez and the ex of the Albacete could be a solution in case of need. Saverio is extreme and also could be an alternative in front of any injury of the ones of up. Finally, Akieme is lateral left-handed and carries a big year in the filial.

It suits to remember that in the smart B can include all the footballers that fulfil the requirements until a day before the meeting of Champions. The UEFA indicates that the club has time until the midnight of the day before to the corresponding party to command the list with the canteranos that decide to inscribe. If it did lacking to throw of some youngster of the house more, the culés could use this method.

Setién Could throw of them in case to have low

It seems complicated that Abe, Araújo, Sarsanedas, Manaj, Saverio or Akieme go to have some opportunity in this League of Champions, although knowing to Setién never can descartar at all. In the case that some important player of the first team suffer an injury or sanction, the santanderino could throw of any one of them, the same that is doing now with Álex Hill or Riqui Puig, that even played in the crash against the Raise.
