Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona faces next Saturday one of the most important parties, by not saying the one who more, in what it goes of season. It will be in Mestalla in front of Valencia, second in the table clasificatoria of LaLiga Santander and maximum perseguidor and threat for the leadership of the Barcelona team.

To Ernesto Valverde has presented him an important problem: I Hammered it saw the fifth yellow in Butarque in front of the Leganés and will not be able to play next Saturday. The 'Txingurri' pretend to find him a spare of guarantees to accompany to Samuel Umtiti, taking into account that Mascherano, the third head office of the team, is lesionado and neither will be able to be available.

The three options of Valverde for suplir to Hammered

Thomas Vermaelen

The Belgian head office seems the most coherent option and less risked to give the relief to Gerard Hammered. Thomas Vermaelen has not had continuity in any moment of his go through the FC Barcelona because of the injuries. However, it is the only central available beside Umtiti that Valverde has available for the party of Mestalla. In spite of that practically it has not played with the Barça, the 180 minutes that contested in the stop of selections with Belgium would have to have him given rhythm of competition.

Lucas Digne

Ernesto Valverde has left clear in several occasions that does not trust too much in Thomas Vermaelen. Nevertheless, yes that it does it in Lucas Digne, to the that has given him quite a lot of minutes in front of the drop of Jordi Alba and that has answered with a performance of less to more. In spite of not being natural head office, Digne played in this position the past season with Luis Enrique, although it was in a line of three head offices.

Throw of quarry

It seems the less likely option to contemplate for Ernesto Valverde, that only has given opportunities to Arnáiz, Carles Aleñá and Cucurella. David Coasts and Jorge Cuenca have numbers to go in in the announcement of Mestalla, but seeing the form to act of the 'Txingurri', seems complicated that they can have minutes.
