Barça debuts this Tuesday in the Champions League against Bayern, at 9:00 p.m. With a long list of injuries, Koeman is bound to bring out his best lineup.
The rest in the FC Barcelona has finish and this Tuesday 14 September, to the 21:00 hours, the blaugrana will confront to the Bayern of Munich of Julian Nagelsmann, in the corresponding party to the first day of the phase of groups of the UEFA Champions League 2021-2022. The only option for the group directed by Ronald Koeman is to add three points, but will be an extremely contested party that will demand the maximum for the Catalans.
The history of the Barça in front of the Bayern is not very positive. In eleven parties, the Barcelona have carried twice the triumph, with two ties and seven defeats. The last time that they confronted , in August of 2020, the then trained by Quique Setién lived his greater historical humiliation in the League of Champions, after having been goleados by 2-8. With Koeman in the benches, the intention is revertir the history, improve the estadísitca and add the first three points in the group And.
It is true that the Barça is very conditioned by the injuries, especially in the forward, reason by which is very likely that Koeman revolutionise his system, to play with a 4-4-2 or even return to the 3-5-3 that gave him very good results in the beginning of this 2021. There are several doubts regarding the names of the protagonists, but with the full infirmary, the Dutch has little with what 'play' in his alignment. To continuation, our forecast of the onces:
Possible alignments of the Barça-Bayern
- XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Jordi Alba, Eric García, Gerard Hammered, Oscar Mingueza; Busquets, Frenkie of Jong, Pedri, Sergi Roberto; Memphis and Luuk of Jong.
- XI of the Bayern of Munich: Neuer; Pavard, Upamecano, Süle, Alphonso Davies; Goretzka, Kimmich; Musiala, Müller, Sané; and Lewandowski
The guardameta German of the Barça, Marc-André ter Stegen, is a 'fixed' for Ronald Koeman. It is his third consecutive party after completing his recovery after an intervention quirúrjica in May, and will be vital that was very attentive during all the party because the Bavarians have very good strikers and a Lewandowski that, if it is headline, will look for the goal at all times.
In the defence would be the novelty of Oscar Mingueza, the one who in front of the physical problems of Sergiño Dest, aims to colarse in the alignment title of Koeman. The true is that the trainer has the option to play with line of four, as to come doing in this season, or can opt by three head offices. In this case, Hammered, Araújo and Eric would share saga and Mingueza would finish in the bench. Nevertheless, the canterano has showed that it can play by the band and would be reinforced by Sergi Roberto from the centre of the field. Jordi Alba, an intocable for the one of Zaandam, will play by the left.
In the medullary also can that there is surprise, with the titularity of Sergi Roberto, for 'compensate' the drops in the offensive. To the of Reus accompanied it the three 'brains' of the team: Sergio Busquets, Frenkie of Jong and Pedri González. The four will be keys to protect the balloon and avoid the contragolpes lethal of the Bayern of Nagelsmann, as well as to help to the two forwards in the research of the goal.
Everything seems to indicate to that the Dutch pair Memphis Depay-Luuk of Jong will première this Tuesday in the Camp Nou. Both andto have played together, in the PSV and the selection of Low Countries, and have a big relation inside and out of the field. The ex of the Lyon comes very enchufado, with a big start of season with the Barça, but also after his 'hat-trick' with the national selection. Of Jong, by his part, keeps the illusion in his new challenge in the Barça and has the total confidence of Ronald Koeman. Philippe Coutinho or Yosuf Demir also could see minutes.
