The injuries had caused some doubts to the Catalans of face to the clash against the Valency in Benito Villamarín, but finally finish resolved to the big.

In spite of that the infirmary no put it to him easy, Ernesto Valverde presented an eleven of gala, an at all simple question when, to start with, Marc-André ter Stegen, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé, Rafinha Alcántara and Kevin-Prince Boateng were between the absences confirmed. By ones or other reasons, the drops of the German, the Brazilian and the ghanés were something simpler to manage, but the ones of the Uruguayan and the French were a very serious question.

The complications increased with Nélson Semedo, Arthur and Philippe Coutinho, 'touched' a short days of the key appointment. The one of Lisbon suffered a contusión cranial that forced him to happen a night in observation, the one of Goiania was some days separated by annoyances in the pubis, and the one of Rio de Janeiro had to stop by an elongación in the biceps femoral of the left thigh.

The technician barcelonista had advanced that the feelings were good, and confirmed it putting them to the three in the eleven initial. In spite of the examinations to which were subjected by the medical services and that already indicated that there was green light, travelled to Seville without the high, that only was official when it was missing little more than an hour so that Undiano Mallenco touched his whistle in the Villamarín.

After a lot of meditar, the Barça bet by a 4-4-2 for the appointment, to brake the charged of a rival that with Marcelino García Toral always sells expensive his defeats. Cillessen Started under sticks, escorted by Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet and Jordi Alba. By in front, a medullary armoured with Sergi Roberto, Busquets, Arthur and Rakitic, and in the forward, Coutinho beside Messi.

Valverde Preferred to save the letter Arturo Vidal

The one who aimed to headline and finally was not it is Arturo Vidal, to the that Valverde reserved a very specific paper. The ex of the Athletic Club has recalcado by active and by passive that wants that his team finish the parties with the same high rhythm with which begins them, and is thus that when to Arthur, or to any of the midfield players finish them the petrol, arrives the moment of the Chilean, that can armour to his when more they need it.
