In statements conceded in previous press conference to the party of this Wednesday, against the PSV Eindhoven in Champions League, Ernesto Valverde analysed the situation in which it arrives the team for the dispute of the party, as well as the plague of injuries that suffers. "The injuries? I suppose that there is an explanation. Almost all the problems lately are affecting to players that have gone to the selection", said in first instance.

The one of Luis Suárez will be an important drop, but the 'Txingurri' is convinced that the FC Barcelona will attain to surpass it, of the same way that did it when Leo Messi could not participate with the team does some weeks. "We have faced a party without Messi and face this with win them to win. If have all the team are stronger but this does not change at all".

The FC Barcelona has the good news of the return of Rakitic and Coutinho to the announcement, in spite of the seven drops that has in the staff. "Rakitic And Coutinho think that they can be, of course. In the previous party had caution with Philippe. We will see as it finishes the training Iván, but are optimistic in this sense".

"We are classified but do not know in which position, and the way to be first goes through to win"

True is that the FC Barcelona already is classified mathematically for the eighth of final, but has the big aim to be first of group, and goes through to win to the PSV in the Philips Stadion. "It does not concern me the competitive tension of the team. We are classified but do not know in which position, and the way to be first goes through to win tomorrow independently of other results. We are in the Champions League and our idea is to be first of group. Our intencion is to win".

The PSV Eindhoven, in spite of leaving last of group with a point, is a fully competitive team. "We are not safe of the victory, value a lot to the PSV, is doing a very good path in the League. They concern us a lot of things of them. Has fast players arrive and is a very recognizable team and very very conjuntado. The parties that has lost has lost by them the minimum", remembered Valverde.

And, on Ousmane Dembélé, did not want to desvelar if it will concede him or no the titularity against the PSV. "Already we will see the eleven. Dembélé Is a player that comes acting usually, from the bench or of entrance, has this quality. If it plays of entrance has desborde and can desequilibrar, and when it goes out of the bench is a revulsivo because it always revolutionises the party. It is something that value a lot. In the football is little valued and is important the players that can change the dynamics of the party, and no all the world has this quality".

Semedo And Dembélé, with a lot of options to be headlines

Valverde Values therefore the possibility that Dembélé revolutionise the parties from the bench, and wait that can help him in his performance the so much that achieved against the Athletic of Madrid in Wanda Metropolitan. "We expect that it help him the goal in front of the Athletic. A goal gives confidence to any player and have the feeling that Dembélé always goes to try give the best when it go out. It was deep and went out him well".

Another of the players that has all the ballots to play is Nélson Semedo, because of the injury of Sergi Roberto. Valverde Trusts he. "Semedo Since it arrived has had an important progression, offensive overcoat. With space, so much in front as behind, is a safe. It is very fast. The same that it helps us in the desmarques, with terrain backwards does very well the returns. We expect that it help us more at stake static, that is the most difficult", concluded. The Barça, in definite, has staff of leftovers for tumbar to the PSV in his own stadium.
