Calendar of FC Barcelona

To only a pair of days so that it initiate the next month of October, all the fans of the football are expecting the day 16, the day of the Classical between the Real Madrid and the FC Barcelona in Santiago Bernabéu. To two weeks of the big party, the stop of selections has prejudiced widely Barça with several injuries of important players like Jules Kundé and Ronald Araujo.

Xavi Hernández will lose to the French by almost a month and to the Uruguayan already until December, contest or no the World-wide of Qatar with his selection. To these two drops has added also the one of Héctor Bellerín by what Vinicius Jr, the extreme merengue that falls by this zone of the field outlines like the player that more concerns to the Barcelona technician especially by his speed and dribling.

Right now the Barça has of Christensen, Eric García, Gerard Hammered, Marcos Alonso, Jordi Alba and Balde like natural defenders to be able to play the Classical in the Bernabéu. In this stage the only footballer with experience in covering this zone of the field that could appear would be Sergi Roberto. The also mediocampista could solve partially this problem if it recovers of his physical problems that drags does some four weeks.

A new plan

Without Araújo available, the attendant to stop to Vinicius Jr in the last Classical, the Barça will have it much more complicated that the 0-4 the past campaign and the 1-0 in the party of pre-season in The Vegas. Sergi Roberto could be the player that occupy this position, but for this has to test in front of the Inter in Champions and against the Mallorca and Celtic in League before visiting the Spanish capital.

One of the alternative would be to play with a footballer of the filial, something that Xavi already could test this same weekend. Álvaro Núñez is the defender with more probabilities to be summoned by the míster culé in the case that Sergi was not to 100% this same week, although contest a party in front of the Madrid like visitor could be too much proof for a canterano without shooting in First.
