The FC Barcelona premières this Saturday to the morning in which it will be the first party of Ernesto Valverde like Barcelona technician. The big question that do the Barcelona fans is if Neymar will dress of short or no
They had happened already several days from that 27 May, when Luis Enrique put the full stop to his stage like technician culé heaving the Glass of the King in front of the Alavés. It was the brooch of gold to a difficult path to equalise. And with this challenge will start this Saturday Ernesto Valverde his career like leader of the Barcelona ship.
The Barça measures this Saturday in the Metlife Stadium of New York to the Juventus, valid subcampeón of Europe. Surely with spirit of revancha, since the Italian team deleted to the Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the past Champions League. This yes, the ones of Allegri have lost to Bonucci and Alves, two fundamental pieces.
It will be the first proof of the new Barça -although it only was Semedo like novelty-. And this always is synonymous of inducements to see if we find different tactics, some surprising proofs or alignments surprise. It does not expect at all of this last this Saturday. The big question is: it will play Neymar?
What himself is likely is that we see already the new role of Sergi Roberto. As we have come aiming in the last weeks, the Catalan midfield player could happen to occupy the position of Iniesta, allowing to Rakitic have more freedom of movement as has with the selection of Croatia. In the rest of positions, few changes.
Waiting for that Valverde speak before the party, there are not news of if the Brazilian will play some minutes -in these parties do not contest the 90 minutes- or will be in the bench. The doubts arise, obviously, in front of the constant informations that aim to that Neymar could go out in the next days course to the PSG.
As they already know, Valverde does not have for the party of Deulofeu and Rafinha -are in Barcelona recovering of his injuries-, neither of Ter Stegen and André Gomes, that follow on holiday after contesting the Glass Confederations does some weeks.
It will be necessary to see also how many minutes contest the yielded -Samper, Munir, Douglas and Vermaelen-. The club follows working in his exit and Valverde could give them opportunities so that revaloricen or for, who knows, can form part of the first team the next course -something little likely to day of today-.
