It seems that the main problems of the FC Barcelona this season 2017-18, at least regarding the injuries, are producing in the defensive saga. At present Thomas Vermaelen finds in the final stages of the recovery of his last injury in the thigh, whereas Gerard Hammered received a hard entrance of Gerard Moreno in the 'derbi' against the Espanyol and will have to be also some weeks moved away of the terrains of game when having affected the ligaments of the knee.

Samuel Umtiti is the only central healthy of the staff together with Yerry Mina, whose debut will force in the next days because of the ristra of injuries of the Barcelona group. This if, Umtiti will not be able to play the following day of LaLiga Santander 2017-18 by sanction, and is thus that poses the doubt of if Valverde will decide or not forcing the comeback of Vermaelen so that it form couple of head offices with Yerry Mina in front of the Getafe.

The initial intention was to give a week more than margin to Vermaelen, until 17 February against the Eibar, so that it recovered and afterwards did not have a relapse of the injury when it touched him go back to get dressed of short. If Ernesto Valverde does not bet for forcing his comeback, however, will have to readaptar to some another player of field to the position of head office or, by the contrary, go up to a defender of the filial.

The Barça, under cottons in defence

This last seems the most likely option, taking into account besides that the Getafe, although it is a competitive team, would not have why ocasionar a big defensive danger to the FC Barcelona in the Camp Nou, as long as the Barcelona team was 'enchufado' in the pressure.

In any case, will be essential to know what before the exact scope of the injury of Gerard Hammered and, during the next days, see if with the daily work the central Catalan achieves to shorten the terms of recovery. The Barça will need him of turn what before.
