Ter Stegen

The guardameta of Mönchengladbach is indisputable under the three sticks of the Barça. In LaLiga has been an authentic wall, but still has a pending account in Europe, because in the phase of groups of the Champions League could not be so decisive -conditioned by the defence- and finish fitting more goals of what has accustomed in this season. Garnacho And Rashford, or the good hit of Casemiro or Bruno Fernandes, are his big dangers.


There are not doubts with the defence by which will bet Xavi Hernández, except unexpected twist of script. In the right band will appear Jules Koundé, whereas by the left will be Alejandro Balde the attendant of 'plant' expensive to the 'Network Devils'. The couple of head offices, as it comes accustoming the Barcelona trainer, will be formed by Ronald Araújo and Andreas Christensen.

Gavi-Of Jong-Kessié-Pedri

In front of the asusencia of Sergio Busquets, the one who will not be available until the weekend by the injury that suffered in front of the Seville, Xavi will go back to bet by Franck Kessié, the one who signed a partidazo in front of the Villarrreal situating to the left of Frenkie of Jong and freeing the pressure of the Barcelona. They will accompany them, like interiors, Gavi and Pedri.


In the forward neither there are doubts, because all seems to indicate to that will follow betting by the two players that more have worked him to the team up to now. Raphinha, that is in his best moment since it arrived to the Barça in spite of his toneless party in The Ceramics, aims to be the attendant to accompany to Robert Lewandowski in the line of attack.
