The FC Barcelona visits the stadium of The Ceramics this Saturday from the 21:00 hours (in Spain) to confront to the Villarreal in the corresponding duel to the fifteenth day of LaLiga Santander. It treats of the first party of Xavi Hernández to domicile like Barcelona trainer and a clash in which the only option is to win the three points to follow recortando distances with the teams in the first positions of the table.
The Barça begins the day in the seventh position with 20 units (of 42 possible), to 10 points of the current leader, the Real Madrid. Of there that it was vital to impose in the field of the 'groguets', a stadium in which precisely the Barcelona do not lose from 2007. However, it will be essential that the directed by Xavi can jump to The very concentrated Ceramics and 'enchufados' to look for the victory immediately, put the Villarreal has resources with which incomodar to the culés.
For this commitment, the trainer of Terrassa has not recovered to any player of the infirmary. Ansu Fati, the Kun Agüero, Pedri, Martin Braithwaite and Sergi Roberto are in his respective process of recovery by his injuries and will not be available in the decisive appointment to the Villarreal, but Xavi himself will be able to have the players of the Barça B that 'marvelled' against the Espanyol, Abde and Akhomach, after his absence in the party of the Champions League of this week.

Xavi has opted for repeating the 3-4-3, with the system of three head offices that already worked against the Benfica in the Champions League, with the novelty of the titularity of Eric García by Clément Lenglet. The technician egarense is conscious that it needs to his best defenders to try 'brake' to the forwards of the Villarreal, those who already have showed that know to take advantage of the spaces that leaves the rival.
In the centre of the field the things have not changed at all and Xavi Hernández has opted for giving him continuity to the 'cracks' that already played in the last crash and that begin to be key. In this sense, will be the same four footballers those who 'lead' the medullary: Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong in a more retarded position, whereas the canteranos Nico González and Gavi will appear more advanced to form a square.
In the forward there has been a surprise and is that Ez Abde will be to title for the first time with the first team of the Barça. To Xavi loved him his 45 minutes against the Espanyol and therefore it has him 'rewarded' in the decisive appointment in front of the 'groguets'. His desborde and desequiibrio will be key for the Barcelona. It will accompany to Memphis Depay, the one who will play in the centre of the forward, and Jordi Alba that will play in a much more advanced position, as already it faced up it to the Benfica.
