The medical services of the FC Barcelona still have not given the high competitive to Philippe Coutinho, by what will not play in front of the Athletic. Yes it foresees that it was against the PSV Eindhoven, in the fifth day of the UEFA Champions League 2018-19
There were a lot of doubts on if Philippe Coutinho would finish going in or no in the list of summoned of Ernesto Valverde for the Athletic -Barcelona of this Saturday in Wanda Metropolitan, and finally the 'Txingurri' has bet by the most conservative option. The Brazilian has not received still the high competitive, what has carried to the technician extremeño to throw of alternatives.
Players like Carles Aleñá, Munir, Rafinha and Dembélé -that returns to the announcement- will have opportunities against the Athletic of Madrid, whereas Coutinho will see the party by television. The Brazilian will not travel until the capital and will take the weekend to finish of reposar and 'close scars', as it is used to to say, to the one hundred by one hundred before the next commitments of the FC Barcelona.
And it is that yes it foresees that have minutes, surely like titling, in the PSV Eindhoven-Barcelona that will play around the middle of the next week in Dutch earths. The party, corresponding to the fifth day of the phase of groups of the UEFA Champions League 2018-19, is unimportant for a Barça that already is classified mathematically for the eighth of final.
Thus, Valverde will use it for 'film' to the players that go back of injuries or that are little 'filmed' in comparison to the other, as it is the case of Samuel Umtiti and Coutinho. On the other hand, in said party will be likely to see also in action to Malcom, Dembélé, Carles Aleñá and who know if also to Denis Suárez, that has gone back to fall of the announcement in front of the Athletic.
Ernesto Valverde has a staff that rebosa talent and motivation by all the sides, and will use the two days that subtract of phase of groups of Champions League to give opportunities to those who less minutes have had up to now.
Cillessen Also can be headline in the PSV-Barça
Jasper Cillessen also has all the ballots to play in these last two days of phase of groups, and the party against the PSV Eindhoven in Dutch earths would be very special for him, when treating of his eternal rival when it was a member of the Ajax of Amsterdam, and by the fact to return to his country. Ter Stegen Will not have problem in yielding him the place.
