Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona plays a lot in his penultimate presentation of the season, against the Ray Vallecano, home. They want to sack of his fans with good feelings, fulfilling with the expectations and with the 'promise' that the things will improve in the next course. It has been a full year of altibajos for the barcelonistas and that it can finish with, even, more uncertainty by the problems that abound in the dispatches.

And it is that it results impossible to separate the last party home of the season of the institutional crisis by which crosses the Barça, andn half of the 'wrap' that there is between Joan Laporta and Xavi Hernández that it could finish with the dismissal of the trainer. This Sunday, in which all the directors and 'heavy weights' of the club will go back to see the faces, can have definite conclusions on the future of the egarense. And it is, obviously, a factor that will condition the party.

The Barça has not been able to win to the Ray from 2021

For the Barcelona results vitar impose to the Ray Vallecano, from the 19:00 hours (7:00 PM CEST), because would be certifying his classification to the next Supercopa of Spain. Right now, have four points of advantage on the Girona and take out a positive result would be the key for 'fulfil' the last aim that remained them. The 'problem' is that it will be in front of a Madrilenian group to the that have not been able to win since they rose to First Division.

The Barça has measured to the group 'rayista' in five opportunities since they went back to LaLiga in the 2021/2022, with a balance of three defeats and two ties. The first, in October of 2021, finish with a 1-0 in Vallecas that propició the dismissal, with immediate effect, of Ronald Koeman like trainer. In the second turn, repeated the result in the Camp Nou. During the past season, the Barcelona took out a tie home (0-0) and fell in his visit to Madrid (2-1), whereas in the first 'combat' of this course signed the tables (1-1).

The Barça, to by the aims 'minimum'

It is not a rival that is him giving precisely well to the ones of Xavi Hernández. This Sunday, the party will have an entirely distinct context. The ones of Íñigo Pérez arrive to the City Condal with a balance of two victories and three 'pricks' (two defeats and a tie) in the last five clashes. Have the only aim to try remain in a higher position in LaLiga in a campaign in which they have not been able to have the regularity that expected . The Barça, by his part, would receive them after signing three triumphs and two defeats (against Real Madrid and Girona) in the same term.

The culés are not for 'launch' artificial fires, because the feelings are not the most positive, but are forced to 'fulfil' and carry the victory. Everything seems to indicate to that Xavi Hernández will bet by an alignment with all his headlines in which there will be two protagonists: Ter Stegen, that plays the possibility to follow 'adding' and approach to Unai Simón in the 'battle' by the Zamora of LaLiga, and Robert Lewandowski that it will want to litigate by the Pichichi. Has 17 goals, three less than Artem Dovbyk (20), maximum artilleryman of the championship. They are in the battle, also, Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid, 19) and Alexander Sorloth (Villarreal, 19).

The doubt in the XI of the Barça to receive to the Ray

The two will be in the XI culé. The only doubt is the presence or no of a Pedri González that follows being very far of his best version, but that has had regularity and has added important minutes in the last two parties of LaLiga. For this day, will return Ílkay Gündogan, the one who did not travel to Almería by accumulation of cards. They are many the possibilities that the trainer culé bet by the Teutonic with Christensen and Fermín López that comes to annotate a doublet against the almerienses.
