The current stop of selections and the back stop by the final of the Glass of the King does that the FC Barcelona only contest a party before visiting the Park of the Princes the next 10 April for the meeting of gone of the quarter-finals in front of Paris Saint-Germain. Although certainly the staff will have a very positive rest, at least some to level of clubs, also does that Xavi Hernández do not have too margin to be able to test on the field some questions that would want to execute in front of the French.

It is thus that the míster already is thinking in how could pose the party, thinking of course in which players will be able to recover of which at present occupy the infirmary. In principle, the doctors have ensured him that will be available Ferran Torres and Frenkie of Jong. The case of the Valencian is the one who seems safer of the two since it expected him does a pair of weeks, although finally it has gone demorando his turn to the terrains of game.

Xavi already begins to elucidate his eleven ideal to visit Paris

But if finally Ferran receives the high in the previous in front of The Palms, Xavi knows that it will have an alternative more for his XI, same case with the mediocampista Dutch, the one who up to now has had a very good evolution of his right ankle. Of this way, and having Frenkie in principle, Xavi only has the doubt right now of who will be his left extreme in the classical 4-3-3.

Although certainly they could exist variants with players like Sergi Roberto or Fermín López, so much in the case that was Of Jong as if it does not finish recovering, 'ACE' informs that the only doubt of Xavi roots in the left sector of the attack, explaining that the fight right now is between Raphinha or Ferran Torres. The Brazilian has all the numbers after his big performance in the last meetings and for arriving in a better competitive rhythm, but the Valencian is a bit more natural in this position and this season also has showed that has much more goal.

The Barça will go out with the best that have

The rest of the XI would be the accustomed in the last weeks, with Ter Stegen, Koundé, Araújo, Cubarsí and Cancel trying achieve another goal to zero, in addition to Christensen, Gündogan, Of Jong, Lamine and Lewandowski creating game and finalising the played. With this eleven, further of the doubt of the left extreme -where also could appear Joao Félix- Xavi expects to compete him to the PSG like visitor, trying especially avoid the defeat and arrive with the maximum of possibilities to the turn in Barcelona a week afterwards.
