FC Barcelona debuts this Wednesday in Copa del Rey against Ibiza in Can Misses. The Catalans will try to move to the round of 16 without Leo Messi, Busquets and Piqué, who did not enter the call of Quique Setién
The FC Barcelona will play this Wednesday in Ibiza the pass to the eighth of final of the Glass of Rey. The Barcelona contest the dieciseisavos of final in Can Misses against the team ibicenco to the 19:00 hours with several drops by technical decision that they could be decisive. Quique Setién has not wanted to risk with his heavy weights and has left out of the announcement to Leo Messi, Gerard Hammered and Sergio Busquets.
Any of the three footballers mentioned will be in the island and will see the meeting from Barcelona. After playing in Granada the past Sunday and taking into account that the blaugrana go back to have another crash this Saturday in Valencia, Setién has not doubted in giving him rest to the most veteran. The Cantabrian technician has to measure the tiredness of his staff and thinks that with what carries will be able to carry the victory of Ibiza.
Without the '10', the weight goleador of the Barça will carry it Antoine Griezmann, that apuna to title in the forward beside Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati. The normal would be that the French played free by the centre, that Carles went in by the right and that the one of Guinea-Bissáu arrive by the left. There is interest for seeing what does the juvenile in this side after not giving his best version in the right-handed side against the Granada.
In the centre of the field will go back Frenkie of Jong, that lost the meeting against the grenadian by sanction. The Dutch aims to the eleven beside Arthur Melo and to Riqui Puig to form a midfield of dream for the future. The Brazilian is not to title from November and there is win to see him at last from the beginning. The one of Matadepera, by his part, had minutes against the nazarís and could be the big appeal of the meeting copero if Setién finishes confirming his alignment.
The Barcelona will have to go out to Ibiza concentrated and without thinking in the level of his rival. The ibicencos are in front of the opportunity of his life and will go out to bite from the first minute. The group blaugrana can not relax, since a trip could leave them out of the Glass at first. Setién, that in spite of leaving to Messi out of the list goes with feet of lead, already has warned it in press conference. The ex of the Betis fears that the fact that it was to only party prejudice to his team and does not want relaxations.
The Barça has to go out to by all in Glass
After the failure in the Supercopa of Europe, the Barça can not allow the luxury to throw this Glass. The Barcelona fell in the final of the year happened against Valencia and this course expects that there is revancha. Win to the Ibiza in this debut is fundamental to settle the new project of Quique Setién, that still is in diapers.
The crash against the ones of the Balearic will be a big opportunity so that the new Barcelona of the Cantabrian trainer follow giving steps forward. Besides, without Messi, the rest of mates will be able to show his level in a demanding test, in spite of the category of the rival. The field could be in very bad conditions by the storm and this factor also could be to have very in account for the dispute of this commitment.
The Ibiza, by his part, is doing a good year in his group of Second Division B and is very ilusionado with the visit of the Barcelona. The ones of Pablo Alfaro, ex head office of the Seville, go third right now in league and are only to two points of the leader, that is the Athletic of Madrid B. Against the culés do not play at all, will go out to enjoy and try give the surprise and therefore they are so dangerous.
