Ernesto Valverde already warned in press conference that it did not go to go out to Ipurua with acting and that went to play a lot of usual headlines. What did not say the 'Txingurri' was that they went to go out all the usual that had available for this meeting. The extremeño went out with everything to play against the team 'armero' and did not reserve to anybody thinking in the final of Glass of Rey.

Only Jasper Cillessen and Malcom are acting usual in the eleven initial that took out the ex of the Athletic in Eibar. Nélson Semedo Also could consider acting, but has alternated this right side all the year with Sergi Roberto, with what would not go in in this group. The rest, are all usual headlines that will be in the final of Glass against Valencia.

"The idea is to keep us active. We do not want that the final of Glass arrive us without playing. There is some distance and do not owe not having rhythm of competition. My idea is that they play players that participate in the final". These were the words of Ernesto Valverde in the press conference of this past Saturday to explain the why went to play so many usual in Ipurua.

It remains clear then that the idea of the Barcelona trainer is that those that go to play in front of the valencianistas do not lose the rhythm and finish the campaign with good feelings. The 'ches' arrive in a good moment and with all his footballers enchufados, with what the 'Txingurri' did not want that his arrived to Seville having rested two whole weeks.

Only the forward will suffer changes against Valencia

Of the eleven initial that took out Valverde in Eibar, only the forward will suffer important changes. Malcom will not play in tip in front of the valencianistas, but could be headline if the trainer barcelonista decides to keep the 4-3-3 usual. Philippe Coutinho, Luis Suárez, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Ousmane Dembélé are lesionados and have done that the extremeño have to do important changes in the line of attack.

Suárez is descartado for the final, Dembélé practically also and Boateng is serious doubt. Instead, Coutinho yes seems that it goes to arrive, with what in Benito Villamarín the Barcelona could go out with a forward formed by Malcom, Messi and the ex of the Liverpool. Another option could be keep the diagram of 4-4-2 of Ipurua and change the chromium of Malcom by the one of Coutinho. It was as it was, Valverde does not have too many options and will have to choose between the few attackers of which has in these moments.
