After a pair of days of rest, goes back the activity to the FC Barcelona, and does it with an eye put in the Eibar in LaLiga and another in Chelsea in Champions. One that will not play in Stamford Bridge is Philippe Coutinho, but this does not involve that his perspectives are not important. The Brazilian plays it to him in Ipurua, and wants to show his adaptation goes on.

The one of Rio de Janeiro aspires to his fourth consecutive titularity in the championship of the regularity, and for the moment his performance has been intermittent. It is true that against Alavés, Espanyol and Getafe has left several samples of what can become, but also has evidenciado that to see his best version still needs time.

But no only time is what has to apply Ernesto Valverde to the acclimatisation of Coutinho, but also minutes, precisely those that could save him to Andrés Iniesta of face to an importantísimo European commitment. Of the capacity of the Barça in England can depend the classification, and is clear that with the captain to the maximum the options will improve, and a lot.


After two ties been still in LaLiga, the Barça plays a lot against the Eibar, by what is likely that there are rotations but no a revolution. The options of Philippe Coutinho will go through if the Txingurri wants to do rest to the manchego of start or proposes a relief that has served him along the season, planting him as headline and withdrawing him ahead of time.

The one of Fuentealbilla could even share titularity with the recently arrived, although it is a possibility that antoja less likely. It does not be necessary to trust Ipurua, but is clear that Stamford Bridge is a greater challenge, and will need of all the effective available. In the meantime, there are others that have to shine in LaLiga, and begin to show that they are a very valid alternative.
