Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona finish September of flawless way and left the duties done in October before leaving to a stop of selections that has certified to the majority of participants in the World-wide. Now it touches to go back to LaLiga, and the Barcelona will not have break against an Athletic of Madrid that it wants to overthrow to the leader and approach again to the first place. The Catalans will try to keep his good series in the première in Wanda Metropolitan, that will throw a party of the football in which they expect to go out victorious.

One of the keys of the meeting will be the interesting dispute in the centre of the field, for which Ernesto Valverde could opt again by a 4-4-2. It is not the first time that the technician bets for going out with everything in a meeting out of house, but this time antoja imprecindible that the team was consistent and effective. With Busquets like anchor and Paulinho, Rakitic and/or Sergi Roberto incorporating to help to the forwards, the puntería of Luis Suárez and a desatado Leo Messi can result decisive. Both were protagonists with his selections and will try to go back to be it. 

Precisely, the Argentinian will want to lengthen his big moment ofform , since his spectacular start of season at last has extended to a selection of Argentina to which has carried in volandas until the World-wide. The 'Albiceleste' saw closely the precipicio to remain was, but a hat-trick of the '10' showed that there is not better leader for Jorge Sampaoli and that the best player of the world is the one who has been born in Rosario.

Dangerous rival

Turned into the last years in an applicant more to all the titles at stake, to the Athletic of Madrid has him atragantado the start of league. Three unexpected ties to domicile have situated him in the fourth square and to six points of the leadership, to the that pretends to approach disassembling the imbatibilidad of the Barça. The defence keeps on being his big signal of identity, and although has algun problem with the goal his offensive power is not for nothing despicable.

Regarding the particular clashes, there is a data something curious. In the two last times that crossed in Champions, the men of the Cholo Simeone happened of round, but in the 11 times that have crossed in League since it arrived the Argentinian technician, never has achieved to win. Eight victories and three ties have blurred the path rojiblanca, although in the clash expects maximum equality as in the last times: five years ago that any wins by three so many of difference. 

The Barça has in front of himself an important challenge, so much physicist like futbolístico, after the wear that of by yes supposes an international stop. The title is not neither much less sentenced, but achieve a victory to première Wanda Metropolitan would be the best warning that the Barcelona follow going seriously. A tie or even a defeat would not be dramatic, but in the changing room of Ernesto Valverde only the three points cost.
