It has surpassed some obstacles this week, but goes back LaLiga and Ernesto Valverde has asked maximum attention against the Getafe. The FC Barcelona is in full career to the titles, and the preparador extremeño has warned that the way begins and finish in the commitment of this weekend. There are some doubts in relation to the eleven that can have in the Camp Nou, but what has left clear is that there is not any excess of confidence.

As it already has done in some occasions along the season, has stood out the qualities of his opponent, one that already complicated him a lot in his sight to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. Of there it went out alive thanks to his marked capacity of survival and to the tarpaulins of Denis Suárez and Paulinho, that once again presents his candidature to the titularity. The one who sure that it will not repeat heroism will be the Galician, since it has gone back to remain went in a season that twist him by moments.

With the majority of doubts focusing to the defence, the Txingurri has not wanted to advance his intentions on the alignment, although more or less there are some certainties on the possible training. With some rotation and some change forced, there are several key points in the ready strategy for the Getafe.

The keys of the alignment of the Barça

The defence

It is the main quebradero of head of Valverde, and the most susceptible line to surprises. A priori, the presence of Yerry Mina seems clear, and what is for defining is his couple of dance. With Gerard Hammered very touched, the ideal would be not forcing more to the Catalan, and with the technician descartando to Nélson Semedo, all the looks aim to Lucas Digne or Sergio Busquets. The French would split with advantage for no trastocar the eleven, and if finally it is not the elected, has options to go in to give a break to Jordi Alba.

The centre of the field

Everything will remain conditioned by the configuration of the saga, but besides, could have his own changes. Pieces like Andrés Iniesta or Ivan Rakitic have had a big requirement in the last days, and footballers like Philippe Coutinho or Paulinho could go back to the eleven initial. Of not being like this, foresee changes if the party puts of prompt face.

The changes

In addition to the headlines, could have some important variation during the meeting, in which already it expects that Ousmane Dembélé can have some minutes. The forward also could present alternatives again, with Paco Alcácer waiting or Aleix Vidal prepared in case it was necessary. The two tips seem indisputable, although it will be necessary to expect to see which are the decisions of Valverde.
