Calendar of FC Barcelona

Ronald Koeman will see the FC Barcelona-Athletic of Madrid of this Saturday 8 May from the terracing of the Camp Nou. The Dutch will have to fulfil his second party of sanction after his expulsion against the Granada and will not be able to head to his players in this decisive meeting of LaLiga. But in spite of this, the one of Zaandam keeps on being the one who commands in the Barça and will be the one who choose the eleven of the culés.

Taking into account the importance of the crash and the moment of form of his footballers, the technician has quite clear the alignment that will take out. However, there are two positions that bring him of head right now and are the two big doubts that has the míster of face to the duel in front of the rojiblancos. It treats of all the right profile of the defence, so much the central like the carrilero.

Koeman Does not have doubts on the system and will bet by enésima time by the 3-5-2 that so well has worked him in what it goes of 2021. This training is with which more stability has found the team and is as better have worked the players, by what will not change it. Nevertheless, the election of footballers already is another sing and is not clear who will play in the right in the defensive zone.

On the one hand they are Óscar Mingueza and Sergiño Dest, that have been very important during these last two months. In the case of the canterano, in fact, has been indisputable until this past weekend, when it did not play in Mestalla. It had chained ten meetings to title of consecutive form, but his error against the Granada caused that his trainer bet by Ronald Araújo in Valencia.

On the other hand, it is the own charrúa, recovered from does almost two months of his injury, and Sergi Roberto, that is healthy from does almost a month. The turn of the of Reus has done that the place of Dest was seriously danger, since since both have coincided the North American has been headline thrice, by two of the Catalan. Nevertheless, the one of the Masia has played in the five meetings in which it has been available, whereas the ex of the Ajax alone in three.

Roberto vs Dest and Mingueza vs Araújo in the mind of Koeman

It seems that the trainer barcelonista trusts a lot in Roberto, can that more even that in his compatriot, by what would not surprise that it was headline against the Atleti. On the other hand, Araújo is more conclusive, has more physical and more character that Mingueza, by what expects that it bet by him by the type of party that expects against the colchoneros. However, the one of Saint Perpètua of the Mogoda is very of the like of the míster, by what fits the possibility that it finish winning him the game to the Uruguayan.
