FC Barcelona is playing the most important moment so far this season without its best players of the season. Neither Pedri nor Dembélé were against United and now neither they nor Lewandowski will be in the Cup Classic against Madrid
The injuries are marking and can mark even more the season of the FC Barcelona. Right now, the culés face the gone of semifinals of Glass of the King against the Real Madrid without his three better offensive players. Neither Pedri, neither Ousmane Dembélé, neither Robert Lewandowski will be in the Classical of this Thursday. Besides, Ansu Fati also is 'touched' and is possible that neither was available for this duel.
The Canarian lesionó in the gone of the playoffs of the Europe League in front of the Manchester United and no longer was for the turn, whereas the French carries 'KO' from finals of January. Lewy Has fallen after the defeat in front of the Almería and could be out of the terrains of game a pair of weeks. By his part, the one of Tegueste and the Frenchman could return for the Classical of League on 19 March. No longer it remains so much to be able to see to this trio marvels, but before the Catalans will have to give the face in front of the Real Madrid, that is not 'mucus of turkey'.
It is the second time in what it goes of campaign in which the Barcelona loses to several 'heavy weights' at the same time in the most delicate moment. It does some months, when the Barcelona still had serious options to classify for the eighth of Champions League, went the defence the one who remained entirely in 'picture' for the two duels to 'life or death' against the Inter of Milan and in lower measure in the turn in front of the Bayern of Munich.
The defence in 'picture' with the Champions at stake
For the duel against the Italians in Giuseppe Meazza, Xavi could not explain neither with Héctor Bellerín, neither with Ronald Araújo, neither with Jules Koundé. The absence of the right side is not dramatic, but the ones of the charrúa and the French, the two better defences of the team, yes went it and a lot. Sergi Roberto, Eric García, Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso, that inexplicably played by in front of Alejandro Balde, went the defence with which formed the Barça.
But in case it was not little, for the turn in front of the 'neroazzurros', in addition to the three mentioned low, the Catalan technician neither could have Christensen, also lesionado. Gerard Hammered played by the Danish in which it went his definite sentence like footballer of elite. The '3' was horrible and failed gravely in one of the three so many that put the Inter to finish empatando in the Camp Nou (3-3).
After falling in Milan and empatar in Barcelona, the Catalan picture needed to win to the Bayern of Munich and expect that the Inter 'punctured' with Viktoria Plzen to follow having options to happen. Unfortunately, the interistas won easy to the Czechs and the culés remained deleted by second consecutive year of the League of Champions. For the crash in front of the Bavarians, by the way, Xavi recovered to Koundé, but of at all cost him in front of the compacter germana (0-3).
Recapitulando, the barcelonistas had to play the life in Europe without his best defences and with a defensive line of circumstances. Who knows what had happened if the physical problems had not hammered to the team in this moment. It can that with Araújo and Koundé the Barça had won to the Inter one or even the two meetings that in the real world finish them condemning.
The misfortune is hammering to the Barça
Now, months after this reverse, the Barcelona has had to face another eliminatory 'top' without Dembélé, his footballer more in shape when lesionó, and without Pedri, the 'lighthouse' of the team and perhaps the most important player for the game of the team. The Barça did not attain sobreponerse to these absences and finish yielding in Manchester, where remained taken down of the Europe League by the United.
Lewandowski Has added also to this list and the gone of the 'semis' of Glass the blaugrana will have to play it also without him. An absolute drama added to the already known of Pedri and Dembélé. The misfortune is abusing of the Catalan picture this campaign and Xavi will have to attain find solutions to go out with 'life' of the Bernabéu. With a good result in Madrid, will face with energies renewed the Classical of League and the turn copera, in principle already with the three 'cracks' that will lose the party of this Thursday.
