Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona receives this Tuesday to the Benfica in the Camp Nou to play the penultimate party of the phase of groups of the Champions League. The Barcelona will confront to the Portuguese picture in his third 'final' consecutive in the competition. In the two first, the culés did not fail in front of the Dynamo of Kiev, but the Portuguese picture is more team that the Ukrainian and will put the things complicated to the ones of Xavi Hernández.

Winning to the ones of Jorge Jesus, the Barça will be mathematically in the eighth of final of this League of Champions. The barcelonistas have right now 6 points after his two triumphs against the Dynamo, whereas the lisboetas have only 4. Therefore, winning to the lusos, the blaugrana will obtain the note for the following round and will arrive to the last day against the Bayern of Munich without pressure.

The one of this Tuesday is the 'final' more important of what goes of campaign by all what there is at stake, but does not arrive neither much less in the best moment. Ansu Fati, the Kun Agüero, Pedri, Martin Braithwaite and Sergi Roberto are lesionados and have not arrived to the crash, whereas Ousmane Dembélé has arrived more than just. In spite of everything, Xavi has very clear that do not cost the excuses and has decided to throw of inventiveness with an eleven unexpected initial and very new.

The XI of FC Barcelona and Benfica:

  • XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; I Hammered, Araújo, Lenglet; Gavi, Busquets, Of Jong, Nico; Jordi Alba, Memphis Depay and Demir.
  • Bench of the FC Barcelona: Net, Riqui Puig, Umtiti, Dembélé, Eric, Balde, Dest, Coutinho, Iñaki Crag, Luuk of Jong and Mingueza.
  • XI of the Benfica: Vlachodimos; Otamendi, Vertonghen, Almeida; Gilberto, Weigl, Joao Mario, Grimaldo; Everton, Rafa Silva and Yaremchuk.

The trainer of Terrassa has decided 'break' with the 4-3-3 in front of the absences that has in the forward and has decided to go out with a 3-4-3 that already has used in several occasions in his stage in the To the-Sadd. Besides, it has surprised including to Clément Lenglet in the line of three head offices beside Ronald Araújo and to Gerard Hammered. Therefore, Eric García, that came playing very well, has fallen of the alignment against all prognosis.

Another of the big novelties of the team is the inclusion of Jordi Alba like pure extreme, as in his starts in the quarry. The side will be the one who contribute depth by the left, whereas in the right will be Yusuf Demir. The Austrian has won him the game to Philippe Coutinho, that was his big competition, and will split from the right-handed side. The midfield is the expected, although it will be necessary to see how distribute the four in the field. It could be a species of rhombus, with Busquets in the half, Of Jong and Nico inner and Gavi something more in the mediapunta.

By part of the Benfica, the big surprise is the suplencia of Darwin Núñez, author of two goals in the gone against the Barça in Give Luz. The charrúa was a nightmare for the defence of the Barcelona and all the central suffered in his duels against him. Jorge Jesus, however, has not had this in account and has preferred 'throw' of Yaremchuk as '9' pure and of Everton and Rafa Silva in bands. To 'priori' this could be a good news for the culés, but will be the green the one who dictate sentence.
