Ernesto Valverde already has outlined his eleven of face to this end of season and party to party leaves increasingly clear who are his favourites. In the gone of the semifinals of Champions League against the Liverpool took out in the centre of the field to Arturo Vidal and left to Arthur in the bench. The change worked him and the Chilean was of the best of the group barcelonista in the meeting.
After this 3-0 there were some doubts on what went to do the 'Txingurri' of face to the turn, but the extremeño has commissioned to resolve them before the crash, when it gave to know his alignment. The ex of the Athletic trusts a lot of in the eleven initial that took out in the Camp Nou and in Anfield decided to take out to the same eleven men that left the eliminatory against the 'reds' sight for sentence.
Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Hammered, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Arturo Vidal; Coutinho, Messi and Luis Suárez. These are the eleven footballers that more enjoy of the confidence of Valverde in these moments. It said that the Barcelona trainer had some doubts in a pair of key positions. The first, the right side. Mané Went every time that wanted of Sergi Roberto in the gone and therefore Semedo had options to substitute him, but finally has not been like this.
Also it could have doubts in the composition of the midfield. Arturo Vidal was excellent in the Camp Nou, but the Barcelona sinned of fault of control in the half. Hardly it had the possession and during good part of the second part the Liverpool shut him backwards. Arthur could go in to resolve this problem, but the 'Txingurri' decided that the best for the turn was to retell with the muscle, the character and the arrival of the ex of the Bayern.
Coutinho Keeps on being key for Valverde
The injury of Ousmane Dembélé against the Celtic of Vigo opened the doors of the titularity in the turn wide open to Coutinho. The Brazilian already was part of the eleven initial in the Camp Nou, but was not well and finish being substituted in the second half. It was an involution of the footballer, that carried several meetings followed surrendering to good level.
But the 'Txingurri' carry all the course betting by him and did not go to leave to do it in a crash of the importance of east. It had said that it could play with a 4-4-2, with Sergi Roberto doing of double side with Semedo, with Vidal in the half and the '7' in the bench. But finally, the extremeño decided to repeat the same formula that in the Camp Nou to close the eliminatory in Anfield.
