Real Madrid will be the next opponent of a Barça that has lost its best player due to injury and also reaches the Copa del Rey Classic with two consecutive defeats, so Xavi will need to think of several solutions

Calendar of FC Barcelona

A lot of wanted to have a machine of the time or predict the future, but up to now are two things that the human being has not been able to reach. Any one of these two alternatives would have been more than valid so that at present the FC Barcelona do not stress a small crisis of game and results that began with the gone of the eliminatory in front of the Manchester United in the Europe League.

That afternoon the culés began winning but grieve could save the tie, besides fell lesionado Pedri, the one who will follow of drop at least other 20 days more. They happened the days and the culés remained deleted of the European tournament and few days afterwards added the injury of Ansu Fati, the defeat in front of the Almería and the drop, also by injury, of Robert Lewandowski, his more important footballer.

To having known that in winter, surely Xavi would not have left to go out to Memphis Depay to the Athletic of Madrid, or mínimamente would have brought a replacement before it closed the market the past 31 January. Now, of his five forwards the mister Barcelona only has two (Raphinha and Ferran) to confront the gone of the semifinals of Glass in front of the Real Madrid, his rival also in the career by LaLiga.

The whites, that have raised his physical level and of results, will arrive also with some drops but with his eleven headline almost all available. All the contrary for a Barça that neither will be able to have Dembélé for this crash, and neither to measure to Valencia the Sunday in the Camp Nou, split in which the own technician will fulfil a day of suspension, to the equal that Gavi.

The most critical moment

All season has high and basses, this always knows , but seems that the one of the Barça has gathered all his problems in February and now has to find solutions. For now, the system of four mediocampistas will allow him to the team culé can compete with alone Ferran -of centrodelantero- and Raphinha. In front of the Madrid will go Gavi, as in the Supercopa, to do of left extreme, and the half of the field will be of Kessié, Of Jong and Busquets, with the Dutch being the only of the three that transmits confidence to the day of today.

Without going in in religious subjects the reality is that for this week Xavi and the Barça need no one, but several miracles. To go back to the way of the triumph will need of Ferran that it was of good roll with the goal, of a Raphinha that of a jump in his performance, an Ansu that can be to 100%, a Koundé that detain to Vinicius or that if it touches him go of head office, can offer a security like the one of Araújo. The staff seemed cover but in a moment delicate of the season the confidence in the available names does not seem too high.
