The ones of Ronald Koeman will première in the competition copera after losing in the final of the Supercopa of Spain against the Athletic Club of Bilbao (2-3) under the threat to lose the second title in a week.
A threat that is the EU Cornellà, a team that does some weeks was able to give the surprise deleting to the Athletic of Madrid of Diego Pablo Simeone. Warned remains, then , a FC Barcelona that comes with the low morals after it sucedido in The Cartuja but that does not have excuse to advance to eighth of final of the Glass of Rey, something that will have to attain with the 'second unit' of Ronald Koeman (or what remains of her by the injuries).
In spite of his gesta against the Athletic of Madrid, the EU Cornellà is not having too much luck in the regular competition. The Catalan picture carries six parties followed without winning in Second Division B and only has added three points of the last 18 possible. Numbers that do not have to despistar to the FC Barcelona, that will have to keep the concentration in a field of artificial lawn like the Municipal of Cornellà.
Six drops for Ronald Koeman
The FC Barcelona arrives to the party against the EU Cornellà with four drops of long length of leftovers known -Gerard Hammered, with an injury in the knee; Ansu Fati, with the meniscus broken; Sergi Roberto, with a muscular break; and Philippe Coutinho, with another injury of similar meniscus to the one of his mate- and another unforeseen: the one of Sergiño Dest by muscular annoyances.
In addition to all they, Ronald Koeman will not be able to have Leo Messi, that was expelled in the final of the Supercopa of Spain against the Athletic Club of Bilbao and that will fulfil against the EU Cornellà the first party of the two of sanction that imposed him after the red. The Barcelona technician, anyway, will do a lot of rotations and will reserve to big part of the headlines to give opportunities to the acting.
Ronald Koeman will vary a lot the alignment with regard to the ones of the last parties:it could be formed by Net Walled; Óscar Mingueza, Ronald Araújo, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo; Miralem Pjanic, Ilaix Moriba, Riqui Puig; Ousmane Dembélé, Martin Braithwaite and Francisco Trincao. However, other players like Matheus Fernandes or Konrad de la Fuente also have options to play of start.
Illusion in the EU Cornellà
Guillermo Fernández Blunt, technician of the EU Cornellà, attended to the means in the previous of the party and thinks that the defeat in the Supercopa will not affect to the FC Barcelona. "The day of the Supercopa does not serve to prepare the party. The context is different and understand that they will range to seven or eight that were not the other day, at least like headlines. We understand that will have an alike approach. They have to give all the circumstances in favour", commented.
The technician of the EU Cornellà showed ilusionado when having the possibility to delete to two giants, after attaining it already against the Athletic of Madrid. "If already the day of the Athletic was historical, imagine you to two. It would be a historical fact in duplicate. Incredible. It goes through our head prepare us the best possible", said, adding that "the Barça comes in good dynamics. Recortando Points to the ones of up and the other day had the final won until the 89. They are not so bad as it seems".
Eloy Gila, captain of the EU Cornellà, also spoke to remember that a new gesta in front of the FC Barcelona would be very complicated. "The probabilities to delete to the Barça are small, logically. You are playing against a rival of the elite. But there are them, of course, saw against the Athletic of Madrid. We go to try, with our game, that these possibilities are bigger", sentenced.
