Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández has confirmed this Monday in press conference that plans again do a pair of rotations to visit this Tuesday to the Mallorca. The Barcelona team, that already left in the bench to Balde and Gavi the past weekend in the traced back in front of the Celtic of Vigo, could have more rotations to confront to the Balearic club in a meeting in which the ones of Xavi Hernández are forced to add the three points and keep in the highest of the classification another day more.

With the Girona being the only rival that for now can keep the rhythm of the culés, the technical body Catalan does not doubt that it has to achieve the triumph in front of the ones of Javier Aguirre, especially seeing an actuality in which only they add a triumph in all the campaign. However, many 'fixed' of the Barça will be in the XI to avoid any surprise and no 'puncture' in a field that is used to to be of parties very opened for the Barça.

A visit that can benefit a lot of to the Barça

Without defeat from the 2009 by League, the Catalan club will have to at the front to a needy rival to add points after achieving only 5 of the 18 that has contested until the moment. As in front of the Celtic, surely to the ones of Xavi expect them a line of five defenders at the front, by what the 4-3-3 and Robert Lewandowski like headline seem an almost compulsory option.

With Xavi already having achieved his triumph 50 in League from his arrival in 2021, the Barça has everything to give another step to forward in his defence of the title of League, presionando to a Real Madrid that will play the Wednesday and will do it knowing -possibly- that by second consecutive day will remain without reaching to the Barça. Adding both situations, and taking into account besides that the Barça will play again next Friday, could be very positive to affect the confidence of the merengues.

Xavi has to be very precise with his decisions in front of the Mallorca

The key of the party can go back to be in the bands and the rotations. In the first time in front of the Celtic the Barcelona team never could descifrar the centre of the line of five of the Galicians and neither the sides neither the extremes offered solutions, adding besides the injury of Frenkie of Jong. Thus, it is not of extrañar that the Barça could find in a similar situation in front of the ones of Javier Aguirre, a very known trainer by his good defensive approaches of LaLiga.

Thus it can not have margin of error for the elections of Xavi in the eleven headline, one in which it would have to reappear Ronald Araújo after receiving the high medical and play some minutes the past Saturday in Montjuïc. Besides, Raphinha has all the chevrons to begin the duel in front of the Majorcan team to try have a greater game by out, having also in account to Lamine Yamal and Ferran Torres like options.

A calendar that does not give break to the Barça

Independently of the result, the culés will have to happen the very fast page and return to Barcelona for the same Wednesday begin to prepare the party of the Day 8, which will put to the always complicated Seville at the front. The good news for the culés will be that the duel will contest the Friday and will leave a light margin to visit in Portugal to the Port wine the following Wednesday, a duel for which Xavi expects not adding another drop to a list that already has to Of Jong and Pedri, two authentic headlines.
