BARÇA WILL GO OUT WITH MASSIVE ROTATIONS
Elche CF-FC Barcelona: The possible line-ups for matchday 27 of LaLiga Santander
FC Barcelona returns to action in LaLiga this Saturday, with the visit to Elche CF for matchday 27. Xavi Hernández will bet on massive rotations to 'take care' of his players after the selection break and in the run-up to the Cup Classic
After the stop of selections, the FC Barcelona goes back to the works in LaLiga Santander with the intention to keep a distance on the Real Madrid, of twelve points, that approach to win his first title suspender belt from 2019. The culés will begin the last stretch of the season visiting to the Elche, this Saturday 1 April from the 21:00 hours (CEST), in the Stadium Martínez Valero. It will be the direct duel between the leader of the classification and the colista, in a party that can be cheat by the massive rotations that will have.
In the side of the Barça, will be many the changes in the XI of Xavi Hernández because the infirmary is full, with Christensen, Pedri, Dembélé, Frenkie of Jong and the doubt of Ronald Araújo, whereas Raphinha will not go in in the announcement because it will fulfil sanction after having seen the fifth yellow in front of the Real Madrid. By his part, the Elche will première trainer, Sebastián Beccacece, and will have the drops of Lucas Boyé and Pape Cheikh by cards, and Roco and Nteka by injury. To continuation, our forecast of the alignments:
Likely alignments of the Elche-FC Barcelona of LaLiga
- XI of the Elche CF: Badía; Palaces, Verdú, Bigas; Carmona, Gumbau, Mascarell, Clerc; Pere Mile, Ponce and Fidel.
- XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Koundé, Alonso, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Kessié, Gavi; Ferran Torres, Lewandowski and Ansu Fati.
The guardameta of Mönchengladbach is signing a historical season and is tracing his way to turn into the goalkeeper less goleado during a course of LaLiga, but comes 'touched' after having fit three goals (two in three minutes) in a friendly of Germany against Belgium. Marc-André ter Stegen will have to show his more reliable version to avoid frights in the house of the Elche.
In the defence is where there are more doubts because Ronald Araújo was not to the stop of selections by annoyances and could reserve him for the Classical and Andreas Christensen is drop confirmed by an injury that can keep him went by a month. In this sense, the only integral of the defence 'headline' that aims to play in the Martínez Valero would be Jules Koundé, this time like head office accompanied by Marcos Alonso. It would leave the right-handed side for Sergi Roberto and in the left would situate Jordi Alba.
In front of the absence of a Pedri González that follows 'KO' and the one of Frenkie of Jong, lesionado in the last Classical, everything seems to indicate to that the Barça will go back to go out with a centre of the field conformed by three footballers: Sergio Busquets, rested in the stop, like pivote, accompanied by two interiors: Franck Kessié and Gavi, the one who did not have a lot of minutes with Spain in the stop of selections. The another option is to bet by the titularity of Pablo Tower, but is unlikely in front of the little confidence that have had him in this course.
The line of attack will give of what speak because, in front of the sanction of Raphinha, the most likely is that Ansu Fati go in in the XI initial and nor is in the best terms with the club after the statements of his father. It is very distinguished, but neither there is more alternative in the bench. The most likely is that it situate in the right extreme, accompanying to Robert Lewandowski, that will try to recover the goal in front of the Elche, and Ferran Torres, the one who has a new opportunity of reinvindicarse with the Barça.
