Still they contest the eighth of final, but the FC Barcelona-Celtic of Glass is a big party. The Barcelona confront against a very dangerous rival that in the last years has showed that it can plant him face. Valverde Does not want surprises
They closed his clashes in 2017 with a tie in the Camp Nou, and went back to cross in Balaídos with another equalised. FC Barcelona and Celtic of Vigo will go back to see the faces in the City Condal with the aim to advance to the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey, and both want to carry an eliminatory that for the moment decide the goals out of house. This Thursday from the 21:30 hours only will be able to remain one.
The announcement of the Barça arrives with some absences by injury, with Samuel Umtiti, Paco Alcácer and Philippe Coutinho still out of fight; and others by technical decision, with Rafinha Alcántara, Gerard Deulofeu, Aleix Vidal, Burn Turan and Denis Suárez, out of the list. Other three players will remain went during the previous hours to the duel. This is our forecast for the party:
Pione Sisto Him fusiló to sentence the tie in the clash of gone, but Cillessen has sufficient strength as to continue keeping his big level. Hardly they can him put 'peros' to his performances, and is that the inigualable Ter Stegen has an acting of guarantees. It is a safe in the Glass of Rey.
If it does not repeat the titularity of Javier Mascherano in which it could be his last meeting in the Camp Nou, the couple of head offices will continue being for Gerard Hammered and Thomas Vermaelen. The nearest to the rotations in defence could arrive in the sides, in which Lucas Digne would have a new opportunity and Nélson Semedo would show that it wants to follow convincing to Ernesto Valverde. It is not descartable that the technician opt by his men of confidence.
With a Celtic that will look for incomodar the exit of balloon culé, Sergio Busquets seems indispensable. Beside him they accumulate the possibilities, and Ivan Rakitic could be his companion. If it goes back the 4-4-2 in the Camp Nou, Ousmane Dembélé could repeat occupying one of the bands, and in the another could help the work of Carles Aleñá. The Txingurri, however, could propose some changes.
When it arrives the hour of the truth, the Barça expects to Leo Messi, and if it is not Luis Suárez the one who accompanies him, the surprise could be his 'man Glass'. The brilliant José Arnáiz is the pichichi Barcelona in the competition, by what would not be descartable that go back to have his prize participating between the headlines.
