Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona finds to the doors of the party of gone of the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain, which will carry out the next 10 April in the Park of the Princes. In this sense, Xavi Hernández is doing the preparativos necessary to define the eleven initial that will confront to the French picture, although they exist doubts on the return of Frenkie of Jong, Andreas Christensen and Pedri González.

In particular, the one of Terrassa could confront to a dilemma in the left side, since Raphinha, the one who has showed a good performance recently playing in this demarcation, seems to have ensured his place in spite of playing in a no usual profile for him. Nevertheless, there is another player that seems to be winning terrain quickly to occupy this position in the duel against the Parisians: Joãor Félix. In fact, as it informed the journalist Toni Juanmartí, the Portuguese left very good impressions during the session of training of the combined Barcelona of this Saturday.

It will reach him to Joãor Félix to be headline in the duel in front of the PSG?

Under this premise, is not for nothing descartable that the exjugador of the SL Benfica, the one who ingresó like revulsivo in the last commitment of the FC Barcelona against the UD The Palms (1-0), being key when giving the assistance for the annotation of Raphinha, giving him a pass with big individual technician, a balloon floated 'exquisite' that surpassed to all the rival defence, can form part of the eleven initial of the egarense for the clash against the PSG.

However, it is necessary to take into account that, in spite of the good level that can be showing the native of Viseu, Xavi has not ranged it like titling in the Champions League from the party of turn against the Port wine (2-1). Since, it was acting in the crash against the Amberes (3-2). Equally, in the series against the Naples, only played four minutes in the duel of gone, although it is important to limit that recently it was recovering of an injury in this moment, and in the crash of turn had grieve nine minutes of action.

Nevertheless, it exists a factor to consider that it could play in favour of Joãor Félix. The Portuguese has had stood out performances in the Champions League and finds between the maxima goleadores of the Catalan picture in this edition of the tournament, with a total of three annotations, empatado with Ferran Torres and Robert Lewandowski. It will be necessary to expect to see if Xavi Hernández offers him the option to initiate the commitment or if it decides to use it like revulsivo.
