Calendar of FC Barcelona

The suplencia of Ansu Fati the past Thursday in the Camp Nou did not seat at all well to the player and the technical body knew it very well. In front of this, and his good minutes when ingresó in the second time in front of the Manchester United, the titularity of the extreme of the Barça to visit to the English in the turn has won chevrons and this could leave an only place for filling in this eleven of Xavi.

With the drops confirmed of Pedri, Dembélé and Gavi, the technician culé could throw of his classical 4-3-3 to look for his pass to the eighth of final of the Europe League. For this, will have to choose between Raphinha and Ferran Torres for the right extreme afterwards that both footballers surrendered to big level in the parties that to both touched them be from the beginning.

The Brazilian was surely the player more regulate in front of the ones of Have Hag in the party of gone, and his anger when being substituted by which will be his rival for this Thursday. By his part, Ferran gave a hit on the table the past Sunday in front of the Cádiz, although certainly in front of a rival of inferior level and with a Barça that dominated the party in 95% of the minutes.

The most conservative diagram

The another possibility, the same of real and of valid is that Ansu go back to remain in the bench, and that Raphinha and Ferran the same follow contesting a place like forward to accompany to Lewandowski and that Xavi throw of his four mediocampistas, once again. With Busquets being headline, the egarense could add to Sergi Robert, Of Jong and Kessié to try dominate the most important zone of the field.

With these two possibilities, both forwards are expecting to see who could be this forward chosen by Xavi. The option that both are headlines, still with 3l 4-3-3, seems very little likely, by the greater effectiveness that can have Ansu by the left band, and more joining with Balde that in Old Trafford will be an offensive weapon of the Barça.
