The party between the FC Barcelona and the Juventus of Turín was a quite traumatic episode for all the surroundings culé, since it lost the meeting by goleada, as well as the first place of the group of the Champions League and, incidentally, the good walk that it had signed the team culé in his parties like venue in the international contest from 2013. However and, although it sound incredible, exists something that can rescue like positive, of all the disaster that went the party of this week.

The situation with the central defence of the staff directed by Ronald Koeman came being critical regarding the quantity of effective with which explained the Dutch technician, because of the sequential injuries of Hammered and Araújo, added to the drop of Umtiti, which came of the past season. This problem carried to the míster to have to fish to Óscar Mingueza, defender of the Barcelona subsidiary, the one who had good minutes in the parties in which had participation.

However, in front of the Juventus concretised finally the turns, so much of the central born French in Cameroon, as of the Uruguayan. This last was headline and went out substituted to the minute 82, whereas the exfutbolista of the Lyon started in the bank of acting and ingresó to the commitment, the first that contested this season and also the first in which it played from June of this year, in the minute 55 of the same, in replacement of his compatriot Lenglet.

With this situation, Koeman begins to have a pair of effective more for his central defence and now, with the positive inclusion of Mingueza in his plans, the Dutch technician has four alternatives, two rights and two left-handed, to conform the central saga of his alignments, in front of the long drop that has to fulfil Hammered. Only it remains to expect to that the progression of Umtiti and Araújo was positive and any of the two go back to recaer of his injuries, especially the French, the one who has had quite a lot of physical problems afterwards of the World-wide Glass of Russia 2018.

Four head center-backs, need more?

With four healthy head offices in the staff and with an economic situation quite difficult, is careful to ask if the FC Barcelona would owe really incorporate to a new defence in the next market of winter. A lot it has spoken of the interest of the Barcelona in the player of the Manchester City Eric García, as well as in Antonio Rüdiger, footballer of Chelsea, but is likely that bring to a new player was unnecessary. More still when the Spanish could arrive free next summer, since his agreement with the picture "Citizen" finalises in this moment.

Incidentally, it has gone out to the light an information in the newspaper Record, that ensures that Jean-Clair Todibo, player of the Barcelona yielded in the Benfica, could return in January to the Catalan club, due to the fact that it has not fulfilled with the expectations of the picture lisboeta. With the French with guyanese roots of turn, would be five the options of Koeman for the central axis of the defence, while it expects to that Hammered recover and go back to be available to play.
