Quique Setién debuts this Sunday at Camp Nou with FC Barcelona and is already shaping the first eleven he will take out. The Santander coach could introduce several novelties in the center of the field due to the loss of De Jong
Quique Setién will seat for the first time in the bench of the Barça this Sunday against the Granada in the Camp Nou. The Barcelona confront to the grenadian from the 21:00 hours in a party in which the Cantabrian will begin to teach his letters. The culés, that already will know the result of the Real Madrid against the Seville in this moment, need to win was as it was to recover feelings after the defeat in the Supercopa against the Athletic of Madrid.
The trainer santanderino, by his part, wants to begin his new adventure in Can Barça with victory, but especially giving show. The ex of the Betis already has left clear that does not want only win, but it looks for that his team play well, and in front of the Granada will have his first opportunity to show it. For this, Setién already is outlining his first eleven initial, that could have important novelties in the centre of the field.
The drop of Frenkie of Jong, that was expelled against the Espanyol and is sanctioned, does that the Barcelona have a boquete important in half in front of the Granada. Luckily for Setién, Arthur Melo already seems to be recovered of his injury in the pubis and could go back to the announcement. The Brazilian could go in in the 11 beside Busquets, whereas Vidal and Rakitic would play , in principle, the another square in the midfield. Nevertheless, the Cantabrian could surprise betting by the youth of Riqui Puig.
If something has showed along his career the ex of The Palms is that it does not shiver him the pulse to the hour to put to youngsters if it thinks that have quality and deserve it to him. In the case of the of Matadepera seems to have 'feeling' between them and therefore already it has gone up him to the first team as it did Valverde with Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez. Riqui Could be the big surprise of the first alignment of Setién.
On the other hand, it does not expect that the one of Santander do changes neither in the defence neither in the forward. In the defensive line, Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet aim to be the couple of head offices, with Jordi Alba in the left and probably Sergi Roberto in the right. The doubt, as it happened almost each weekend with the 'Txingurri', is if the ex verdiblanco will bet by the Portuguese or by the Catalan in the right-handed lane. It seems that the one of Reus splits with advantage, but is not of the all clear.
Ansu Will accompany to Griezmann and Messi
Finally, in the leading all aims to that Ansu will accompany to Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann. The juvenile already was the first option of Valverde after the injury of Luis Suárez and would keep on being it with Setién. Carles Pérez is the alternative, although the normal is that it begin in the bench. Inside a pair of weeks, the Cantabrian could decide do the change of system of the that spoke in his press conference of presentation, but against the Granada expects again this 4-3-3 with these variations in the centre of the field.
