It goes back LaLiga Santander for the FC Barcelona, that will measure to the Villarreal in the official première of the team of Ronald Koeman in the season 2020-2021
They finish the proofs. After three victories -against Gimnàstic of Tarragona (3-1), Girona (3-1) and Elche (1-0)- in the three parties of pre-season contested until the moment, the FC Barcelona will première this Sunday to the 21 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) in LaLiga Santander against the Villarreal in what it will be the debut in official party of Ronald Koeman like Barcelona trainer.
It has happened almost a month and half since the team culé lived possibly his more black night in the history -this party of quarter-finals of the Champions League in which the team of Quique Setién received eight goals of the Bayern of Munich- and there has not been too time to digest the sucedido. It will touch to face this start of LaLiga in an environment that, in Barcelona key, still has gone to worse.
The attempt of 'escape' of Leo Messi, the motion of censorship against Josep Maria Bartomeu or the earthquake as a result of the course of Luis Suárez have shaken to the club, doing that the starts of Ronald Koeman do not go to be a way of roses. Without Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, Nélson Semedo and Luis Suárez, but with Miralem Pjanic, Francisco Trincao, Pedri and, especially, Leo Messi, the FC Barcelona will face a full season of fetters, but also of challenges ilusionantes.
Three drops for Ronald Koeman
In principle, the lists of summoned of Ronald Koeman will give in the same day of party and, of face to the duel against the Villarreal, the Dutch trainer will have three safe drops: Marc-André ter Stegen, that is recovering of the operation in the sinew rotuliano; Martin Braithwaite, with a muscular injury in the previous rectum; and Samuel Umtiti, that follows with annoyances in the knee.
The rest of the team will be to disposal of Ronald Koeman that will split with an alignment title that it seems quite predictable, at least from the medullary to backwards: Net will be in the goal; Clément Lenglet and Gerard Hammered will form the central axis; Sergi Roberto in the right and Jordi Alba in the left for the sides; Frenkie of Jong and Sergio Busquets in the double pivote.
Less clear will be the mediapunta, especially to the averiguar in which position will play each footballer. The presence of Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho is indisputable, whereas the fourth place has like candidates to Ansu Fati, that splits with advantage, to Ousmane Dembélé and to Francisco Trincao. Or Leo Messi or Griezmann will be the attendants to play of '9'.
The Villarreal, more complete
The Villarreal is a team with important changes with regard to the that does a pair of months fit four goals of the team culé, then directed by Quique Setién. With a new technician in the bench, Unai Emery, and several signings of renown like Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin or Pervis Estupiñán, the picture castellonense will treat to take out points of the Camp Nou after having added four points in the two first days.
It is necessary to remember that the majority of teams already have contested two days of LaLiga Santander and only FC Barcelona, Athletic of Madrid, Elche and Seville have not debuted in reason to having finished later the past season. It is thus that the Villarreal will arrive to the most filmed party that the Barcelona picture and that will split with this light advantage, in addition to the one to have dangerous players like the offensive pair, formed by Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcácer.
In press conference, Unai Emery gave the keys to do a good paper against the FC Barcelona. "They will want to dominate, with the very deep sides, what sometimes forces you to defend very backwards. That we are able to try impose our moments of command, that are able to win duels and to attack his spaces is important. We have worked very well and it gives me tranquility", commented. This Sunday, arrives the resolution.
