Ernesto Valverde is going to have to make some forced change with respect to his eleven type this Sunday against Sevilla. Todibo could be the holder for the sanction of Lenglet, but it is not the only novelty that Barça's eleven could have
The FC Barcelona plays this Sunday from the 21:00 of the night against the Seville in the Camp Nou. The sevillistas arrive after a big victory against the Real Sociedad in the Sánchez Pizjuán by 3-2 and win by the minimum to the Apoel by 1-0. The ones of Julen Lopetegui have 13 points and are empatados with the Barça in these moments.
Ernesto Valverde goes to have to do some change forced in his eleven type by fault of the injuries and of the sanction to Clément Lenglet. The French was expelled against the Getafe and will not be able to be in front of the hispalenses. Jean Clair-Todibo is the only central available in these moments by the injury of Umtiti, with what would have to be the man chosen by the 'Txingurri'.
If the French accompanies to Hammered in the axis of the saga like everything seems to indicate, the another doubt of the technician would be in the left side. Junior Firpo does not go to arrive to the crash by injury, whereas Jordi Alba goes to apurar and will try to play in front of the sevillistas. If the Catalan plays, Nélson Semedo, that occupied the left side in front of the Inter, will return to the right. This would do that Sergi Roberto went to the bench or went in in the centre of the field. If Alba does not arrive to time, the sides will be the same that the Wednesday in Champions.
Another option for the defence, although quite far, would be to plant to Frenkie of Jong of head office with Hammered. The Dutch played several times in this position with the Ajax and would not have problems in playing here in case of urgency. But put in defence to the midfield player would do him lose to the Barça a lot of things in the centre of the field, with what would not be the first option of Valverde. Unless it jump the surprise, Todibo will be to title in the saga.
Doubts in the centre of the field
In the centre of the field there is debate after the toneless party of Busquets in front of the Inter and the big performance that gave Vidal in the second time. Valverde Is adherent of a midfield with the one of Badia, Of Jong and Arthur, but perhaps could give entrance to the Chilean for this meeting. The 4-2-3-1 of the second part against the Inter worked well and the one of Saint Joaquín could contribute arrival, strength and more dynamism to the attack.
Sergi Roberto could be another option if Alba recovers and goes in in the left-handed side. An alternative for the mediapunta with the 4-2-3-1 also would be Antoine Griezmann. The French is not extreme left-handed and here do not improve his virtues. In this position would be more comfortable and would give more solutions in attack. In spite of this, does not seem that the 'Txingurri' go to do experiments like east against a rival like the Seville.
Dembélé Could go in in the forward
Finally, the only novelty that could have in the leading would be the incursion of Ousmane Dembélé in the left side. The extreme would substitute to Griezmann, that was one of the most toneless against the Inter and that does not finish to find to himself same this course. The ex of the Dortmund, instead, yes gave distinct things in the 25 minutes that played against the interistas.
In spite of the bad performance of Griezmann, seems that Valverde will not touch the trident and will go out with everything against the Seville. The technician extremeño knows that to Antoine it is necessary to give him confidence so that it recover his best version. Besides, Dembélé could be a big revulsivo from the bench for the last half hour, as against the Inter.
