If for the première copero Valverde reserved to the majority of his headlines, the revolution in the eleven will go in the another sense in Saint Mamés. The technician no fía of the bad moment of the Athletic, and the Barça will go back to go out with everything to go back home with the victory
Still it has a lot of margin of improvement, but Ernesto Valverde is checking that his FC Barcelona goes launched since it began the season. With elder or lower tarpaulin, the Barcelona take out the commitments forward, and after aiming another victory in the Glass of Rey, go back to LaLiga willing to go back to win.
Not even the low performance of the AthleticClub , too irregular in this start of campaign, will allow that the Catalans jump to the lawn of Saint Mamés with confidences. His intention is to carry of there the three points, but know that they will have to work his superiority and move it to the marker as against any another rival.
Like this, and as it has showed in the majority of his parties to domicile, Valverde will recover to the first unit to face a dangerous duel in front of the 'Lions', that already know what is to win to several members of the current staff. In his last visit to the feudo rojiblanco, the Catalans fell by 2-1, and had to appeal to the Camp Nou to trace back in the eighth of final of the past edition of the Glass.
In the two extremes of the field will go back the references of the Barça of face to the goals, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in one and Leo Messi in the another. Iniesta and Busquets also seem innegociables, of the same way that is being it Ivan Rakitic. With I Hammered and Umtiti like favourites for the axis of the saga, the greater doubts are in the sides -where is for defining the paper of Sergi Roberto and the recovery of Jordi Alba- and in the third forward, since a priori Luis Suárez will be the elected to support to the '10'.
In case the Barça did not have sufficiently in account the threat that supposes the Athletic Club, his recent statistics in Saint Mamés remembers that it is not an easy square in which act. Of his last 14 visits, the culés only won the half, 7, and in the rest carried a booty that would be considered insufficient. Four ties and three defeats adorn the Barcelona balance in the historical Basque stadium.
