Carry the three points of Wanda Metropolitan would serve for asestar a hit of authority in LaLiga Santander, and the FC Barcelona does not want to desaprovechar the opportunity. Without Coutinho, but with Dembélé, will look for reencontrarse with the victory
It finish the last stop of selections of 2018, and go back the well. The FC Barcelona wants to finish the year of the best possible way, obtaining the greater distance that can at the head of LaLiga Santander 2018-19, and the first step to do it will be to win in Wanda Metropolitan to one of his direct rivals in the fight by the title, the Athletic of Madrid of the 'Cholo' Simeone, that arrives to the duel mermado by the drops in defence to the not being able to have of Juanfran, Godín neither Giménez. The group 'colchonero' will be lastrado in what better gives him -defend-, but will follow explaining of an always competitive group that will look for to start to the Barça the second consecutive defeat in the domestic championship.
And it is that we do not forget that the FC Barcelona arrives after losing against the Betis (3-4) in the Camp Nou, and also with some remarkable drops as they are the ones of Vermaelen, Samper, Rakitic and Coutinho, the last of which has not received the high competitive to time to form part of the announcement of Ernesto Valverde. Yes it has returned Dembélé, the one who after hoarding the sportive covers of half world is had to answer as better knows: playing to the football. True is that neither Barça neither Athletic are offering the reliability of results of the last seasons, but precisely this will do them even more dangerous, given the need to add of three in three to keep in the highest.
Arturo Vidal aimed to relieve to Rakitic in the eleven of the FC Barcelona, but Sergi Roberto could burst into in the centre of the field beside Busquets and Arthur, leaving to the Chilean in the bench and a free gap in the right side so that it was Nélson Semedo the big novelty in the alignment. Dembélé Could accompany up to the two current 'Pichichis' of the competition, Luis Suárez and Leo Messi, to those who no gives them at all badly mark to the Athletic. 28 targets has harvested the Argentinian in front of the rojiblancos, and since the charrúa landed in Barcelona during the season 14-15, the group culé has marked 22 goals to the Athletic and, of them, 15 have the signature of the couple sudamericana.
All the contrary that Diego Coast, the supposed 'goleador' of the Athletic of Madrid that accumulates 18 days without marking in League and would fulfil a whole turn of bad fario if it does not mark to Ter Stegen. Antoine Griezmann, by his part, will measure for the first time to the team to the that said 'no' this past summer, through a documentary surrounded of controversy. It fits to stand out, in addition to the individual duels Ter Stegen-Oblak and Messi-Griezmann, the one who will star Rodri Hernández with his 'mirror' in the centre of the field, Sergio Busquets. Wanda Metropolitan will deploy a mosaic of 67.000 cardboards, the biggest in the short history of the stadium 'colchonero', to generate an environment of maximum emotion.
Good statistics of the Barça against the Athletic
The FC Barcelona chains at all less than 940 days without losing against the Athletic of Madrid, team against which does not fall defeated from the 2-0 of 13 April 2016 in the party of turn of the quarter-finals of the Champions League, in Vicente Calderón, when two goals of Antoine Griezmann served for vapulear to the FC Barcelona of the competition. Another interesting data is that only two parties of LaLiga between both teams, in field rojiblanco, finished with tie without goals. In the rest of crashes suspender belts in terrain 'colchonero', 81, there was at least a goal. It expects show and goals by doquier, therefore, in one of the most attractive duels of Europe.
It suffices with remembering, besides, that treats of the team that less goals fits in the competition liguera, the Athletic of the 'Zamora' Jan Oblak, against the club that more goals annotates in the present competition, with the duet of 'Pichichis' Messi-Suárez. The emotion will be served, then , in a clash that Gil Manzano will be the attendant to arbitrate. We remember that said referee already had an excessive leadership years backwards in some semifinals of Glass of the King between both teams, in the Camp Nou, when it expelled to Sergi Roberto and Luis Suárez, preventing that they contested the final against the Alavés. Of face to the meeting of this Saturday, expects that the referee, with the help of the VAR, are the most hit possible and do not hoard the focuses.
