FC Barcelona faces Alavés this Saturday in Mendizorroza. Those of Koeman, who have two consecutive defeats and a draw in the last three league games, will try to break that bad streak
The FC Barcelona visits this Saturday from the 21:00 hours of the night to the Alavés in Mendizorroza. The Barcelona arrive with very good feelings after his victory against the Juventus of Turín in Champions League, in which they showed that they can be a fearsome team if have the day. The vitorianos, by his part, also won in his last commitment against the Valladolid, the farollilo red of LaLiga in these moments.
Nevertheless, the group barcelonista does not arrive in so good moment as it seems after the 0-2 in front of the Juve. The ones of Ronald Koeman add three consecutive pricks in League, with a tie contraa the Seville in the day 5, and both defeats in front of Getafe and Real Madrid in the sixth and the seventh. Against the merengues fell does a week by 1-3 in the Camp Nou, in a disappointing and controversial crash by fault of the VAR.
Luckily, the Barça left backwards these bad feelings in Turín and now pretend to cut his bad series liguera and follow 'in crescendo'. For this, the Dutch technician seems that it will do several changes regarding the eleven that won to the 'Vecchia Signora'. They expect at least four variations, between which stand out the names of Sergiño Dest, Gerard Hammered, Sergio Busquets and Ansu Fati, that would go in of start.
The Dutch would play by Sergi Roberto, that was to title against the bianconeros, whereas I Hammered, sanctioned in Champions, would return to the eleven by the lesionado Ronald Araújo. The charrúa is one of the drops for this crash and not even will be in the bench, by what Frenkie of Jong will go back to be the solution of emergency of Koeman in case that have problems in the centre of the saga in front of the vitorianos.
Ansu Fati Will go back to the eleven initial
The one of Arkel that, by the way, will share double pivote beside Busquets, that was acting in Europe and aims to the titularity. Miralem Pjanic Would be the prejudiced, although after the 90 minutes that contested in Turín, his absence can be more than justifiable. On the other hand, up it seems that it will go back Ansu Fati, Pichichi in League and maximum goleador of the Barcelona this campaign. The Hispanic-guinean is the greater offensive weapon of the culés for the time being and will be very necessary to take out the three points of Vitoria.
There are more doubts in the player that would accompany to Ansu and to Leo Messi in the line of mediapuntas, since so much Pedri like Ousmane Dembélé shined in League of Champions. It seems that the Canarian has advantage by his path, since it has surrendered well during the last weeks. Koeman Trusts a lot in him and could play by Philippe Coutinho, lesionado and drop confirmed for this meeting.
The Barça has to begin to add of 3 in 3
The party is transcendental for the Barça, that can not allow the luxury to go back to puncture. The Barcelona are right now decimosegundos in the classification with 7 points of a total of 15 that has contested. Although has two crashes less than the majority of teams, are few points and if it wants to win LaLiga can not lose more. Add of three in three is fundamental and Vitoria is the first step to begin to do it.
In front it will be an Alavés that goes fifteenth, with the same points that the Catalans, 7, but with two commitments played more. The ones of Pablo Machín have won only 7 of 21 points and are 2 above the descent that marks the Huesca. Lucas Pérez and Joselu are his two big hopes and will be the players to which will have to be more attentive the Barça. Both tips are very dangerous near of the area and the central will have to be very on of them not to suffer.
