The Spanish Super Cup did not mean a change of role for Lamine Yamal at FC Barcelona. The youth player was a substitute in the two games played in Arabia and, after Raphinha's injury, he hopes to have more minutes in the coming weeks

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández keeps intact his plan regarding the management of minutes of Lamine Yamal. The juvenile is, to these heights, the third player with more parties contested of the staff (27), only surpassed by Ílkay Gündogan (29) and Ferran Torres (28). However, hardly it has been headline in ten opportunities and, regarding the quantity of minutes contested, the one of Esplugues of Llobregat not even goes in in the 'top 10' of the staff.

With 1.186 minutes of game, the extreme is the decimosegundo footballer with more shooting this season. In spite of having contested only a pair of duels less, Lamine great almost the half of the shooting accumulated by Gündogan (.2274 minutes). In this sense, the canterano expects to have more leadership in the second half of season, although it is conscious of his role of revulsivo product of his youth.

Lamine Expects to have more leadership in LaLiga

And it is that, by League, Yamal was to title for the last time in the day 14 contested on 25 November in Vallecas, in front of the Ray (played 75'). In the last five dates of the tournament, Xavi has given him between 15 and 20 minutes by game, without greater incidence in the results obtained by the team. After this party, the '27' only was in the eleven against the Amberes by Champions, a party that played complete.

With the injury of Raphinha and the irregularity of Joao Félix, Lamine trusts to have more shooting in LaLiga, considering the demanding calendar that the Barça will have by in front in the weeks to come. The culés will have by in front seven parties in the next four weeks before visiting to the Napoli by the gone of the eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League. The first challenge, this Sunday in field of the Betis, aims like a good opportunity so that the extreme return to the XI.

The diagram of four midfield players, an obstacle for Yamal

However, to see again to Lamine from the start with assiduity, is likely that Xavi have to restart the diagram 4-3-3 like base. In the Supercopa Spanish, the egarense bet for putting to four midfield players, with Sergi Roberto from the go. This plan did not work and, in the eighth of Glass of Rey, the technical body went back to bet by a trio of atancantes conformed by Ferran, Joao Félix and Marc Guiu.

In contrary case, while the plan of game aim to populate the half of the field, is likely that Yamal follow expecting in the bench, since his position of born extreme does not fit a tactical drawing that prioritises to play with two tips, being Ferran, Joao or Vitor Roque the ideal companions for Robert Lewandowski.
