Although the exit in the rest of Andres Christensen himself was related with physical annoyances of the central, the reality is that Xavi Hernández left in evidence that it also was thinking in the Glass of the King before and during the party with the Getafe. The Barcelona technician reserved some names, and to others, as to Alejandro Balde, offered him a timely rest.

The left side of the Barça also left the field after it finished the first time in front of the Madrilenian, although in his case there is not any report of physical problems. In addition to this, the Barcelona team did not have on the lawn to a suspended Robert Lewandowski, same case that Ferran Torres. With this 'rest' the Pole ensures even more his place to title in front of the Real Sociedad next Wednesday.

This track remained even more clear with an Ansu Fati that contested the 90 minutes in front of the Getafe, always by the centre of the attack. Raphinha, by his part, seems little likely that can repeat from the beginning in front of the Basques, although certainly it played a correct party beside a Dembélé that is indispensable for the technical body. Ingresará Ferran or there will be again quartet of mediocampistas?

Araújo And Frenkie of Jong remained all the party in the bench this Sunday, by what his chevrons to be headlines are to the maximum. Besides, Xavi took the caution to substitute to Sergi Roberto, understanding that it could be headline in the quarter-finals of the Glass of the King if Christensen did not arrive to be to 100%, something that by these hours seems not being a reason of worry in Can Barça.

Finally, the three mediocampistas contested the 90 minutes also, although in his cases does not seem to have another reading that retell with all they from the beginning, and in die marry to add them an Of Jong that has begun very well this 2023. The greater interrogante of Xavi will go through if Busquets is to be headline to half of weeks, the same that Christensen.

The Real is being the third better team of the season in Spain. The Basques have consolidated a project based especially in the quarry and will not doubt in going out to look for the party in the Camp Nou. Taking into account the XI in front of Athletic and Real Madrid, the bet of Gavi or Pedri as 'false' extreme seems almost sung, having available besides to the pair Lewandowski-Dembélé.
