FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol will contest this Wednesday from the 22:00 hours of the night a derbi Catalan in which the culés will play LaLiga and the parakeets the descent. A victory of the Barça would put pressure to the Madrid and would go down to the Espanyol
The FC Barcelona receives this Wednesday from the 22:00 hours to the worst RCD Espanyol in quite a lot of years. The Barcelona follow litigating by LaLiga and do not go to throw the towel until have mathematical options to win it. For this, the culés need to follow winning until the Real Madrid lose some point. The madridistas are four by on right now and have to lose five of the 12 points that remain at stake not to win the championship. It is very difficult, but as it is used to to say, while there is life, there is hope.
The situation of the Barça keeps on being limit in all the senses and thus it is necessary to follow adding of three in three. In front it will be an Espanyol that plays the descent to a letter in the Camp Nou. The pericos need the victory so much or more than his Barcelonan rivals, since in case of not winning will descend mathematically to Second Division. In other words the Barcelona could go down to his eternal rival in a duel that boasts tremendously taut and interesting.
To surpass to the espanyolistas, Quique Setién seems that it will have the same base of players that exhibited in Villarreal. In the Stadium of the Ceramics, the barcelonistas completed his best meeting from the stop and perhaps also the best since the Cantabrian seated for the first time in the bench in front of the Granada in January. They were put, presionaron up, touched with sense, looked for put it rival, generated occasions... In summary, had a round day that it could be a turning point.
The key of this change that gave the Barcelona in Villarreal was the new training that took out Setién. The one of Santander surrendered in his eagerness for sentencing to Antoine Griezmann and put a 4-3-1-2 with the French in the forward with Luis Suárez. With freedom and far of the prison that went for him the left band, the Frenchman enjoyed, combined and moved better and more than ever. Besides, with Leo Messi by behind, in the mediapunta, the one of Macon had an ideal partner near to play. Both understood very well and the Barça noticed the change.
Setién Will insist in the 4-3-1-2 of Villarreal
By this reason, is very likely, by not saying sure, that Setién will go back to take out this training in front of the Espanyol. Anything that was not to put this 4-3-1-2 would be a surprise and no precisely good. The Barcelona need stability and if it has worked to play of this way it is necessary to grow from this system with these players. Thus, the Cantabrian seems that it will have almost all the headlines of the viego Madrigal in the crash in front of the parakeets.
The defence will be the same with like this total security, the same that the forward, in which it will go back to be the MSG. Where himself could have some change is in the centre of the field, where could go in Ivan Rakitic and Riqui Puig. They could rest Arturo Vidal, that lately has played it almost everything, or Sergi Roberto, that went out in Villarreal and could be important in the crash of Valladolid. Nevertheless, it can not descartar that Setién bet by the same or even remove to Sergio Busquets.
Of Tomás and Embarba, dangers of the Espanyol
By part of the Espanyol, Raúl of Tomás and Adri Embarba will be the men to be followed. The defence barcelonista will have to have a lot of care with both, since they are being of the little salvable of the espanyolistas by the moment. The extreme is being the factor desequilibrante of the team in each meeting and Nélson Semedo will have to squeeze so that it do not do of his. Has dribbling, is fast and hits him well to the balloon, by what his diagonals will be a problem to avoid.
In the case of Of Tomás, the forward carries touched since it went back the football, but still like this always is necessary to take it into account. The Madrilenian is the typical forward that without touching a balloon in all the crash can wrap it in the first that touch and mark goal. Technically it is very good, goes very well of head and has a spectacular shot from any place of the field. Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet will have to tie him in short, since doing it the Espanyol will remain in practically at all.
