THE CAPTAIN OF BARÇA, ON TRIAL
Sergi Roberto is left 'without a place' in Xavi's Barça
Xavi has opted for other options rather than having captain Sergi Roberto in the rotations. His minutes are becoming less and less and his continuity could be in doubt
The FC Barcelona abandoned Are Moix with a bitter tie in front of the Mallorca that leaves the peak of the championship to favour of the Girona and Real Madrid. Xavi Hernández went back to leave doubts with his system of rotations and remained in evidence that it does not have some footballers of face to the future.
Sergi Roberto, in the dry dam
One of them would be Sergi Roberto, the one who did not have minutes in spite of remaining in the band heating during big part of the commitment. In fact, it went the canterano Fermín López the one who went in in the medullary and had an immediate impact when marking the goal of the equality that kept the hope of a new traced back similar to the one of the Celtic.
Further that the meeting finished empatado (2-2), the feelings of the technician with the midfield player of The Masia leave him by in front of the captain in the rotations. Something that could presage an exit at the end of the season if his minutes do not go in increase now that Frenkie of Jong and Pedri González are lesionados.
Opportunity in front of the Seville?
The weekend in front of the Seville could be a big opportunity so that the one of Reus add time of quality on the terrains of game. The team could start with Oriol Romeu, Ilkay Gündogan and Gavi in the medullary, whereas Fermín López and Sergi Roberto will keep to the expectation like spares.
Sergi Roberto only adds 174' minutes of game in the eight parties of the season in which it has been used, what launches an average of 22' by meeting contested. By his part, Fermín has participated in 3 meetings for a total of 62' minutes and 1 goal annotated.
