FC Barcelona visits Elche this Sunday at the Martínez Valero. The Catalans, after spending 'in extremis' in the Cup, will seek to continue their good streak in LaLiga to continue fighting for the championship
The FC Barcelona visits Sunday from the 16:15 hours of the afternoon to the Elche in the Martínez Valero. The Barcelona will look for to follow with the big feelings that have left in all the meetings of LaLiga that have contested in this 2021. By his part, the Alicante, now falling, but with two parties less than the rest, will try to mark against the barcelonistas to go out of the pozo in which they have put .
The blaugrana, that carry three consecutive victories in the championship suspender belt after defeating to the Huesca (0-1), to the Athletic Club (2-3) and to the Granada (0-4), arrive to the duel after losing the Supercopa of Spain and win in the extention to the Cornellà in the dieciseisavos of Glass of Rey. These last crashes have not been very positive for the Barça, that has gone back to the walked regarding game and feelings.
The ones of Ronald Koeman happened to the final of the Supercopa thanks to Marc-André ter Stegen, that saved him in the extention and in the batch of penaltis. In the final, without an extraterrestrial performance of the German, the Athletic surpassed to the Catalans in the extention and carried the title with merecimiento. In Glass, the culés followed the same and, failing until two maximum penalties in the statutory time and errando several clear occasions, had to play again the pass to eighth in the extention.
After these the duels of the Supercopa and the fright in Glass, the Barça will have to make a fresh start, change the chip and centre in the very that was doing the things in League since it began the new year. For this, the Dutch trainer will explain practically with his eleven of gala since Gerard Hammered and Ansu Fati fell lesionados. The only doubt of the preparador is in the right side, where Sergiño Dest and Óscar Mingueza aspire to the place.
A 11 with the drop of Messi and the doubt of Dest
The ex of the Ajax has recovered to time of his injury, but the technician could decide not risking with him and plant to the polyvalent canterano there, as it already did against the Athletic and the Cornellà. Further of this doubt, and remembering that Leo Messi will go back to be drop by the sanction of two parties that imposed him Competition, the eleven seems that it will be east: Ter Stegen; Mingueza/Dest, Araújo, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Of Jong, Pedri; Dembélé, Griezmann and Braithwaite.
Without the captain, that will go back against the Ray Vallecano next week, the weight of the attack recaerá in the shoulders of Griezmann and Dembélé. The one of Vernon was the hero in Cornellà with his golazo and his speed and desborde could be keys to break the defence ilicitana, that is one of the hardest of LaLiga. The '7', by his part, has to recover his best level after his grey performance in Glass. The Barcelona needs to the best Antoine, and without Messi touches him throw of the car.
The Elche, without Fidel, but with Lucas Boyé
On the other hand, the Elche will not be able to have the player more talentoso of his staff, Fidel, that is lesionado. The left-handed extreme is the greater danger of the ilicitanos by band and his team goes him to throw a lot of less. Without him, the ones of Jorge Almirón will look for the speed of Rigoni, the desborde of Josan and to his 'killer' Lucas Boyé, that will be surely the player to the that the culés will have to tie more in short.
The Argentinian tip carries 4 goals this season, 3 of them in League and 1 in Glass, but is much more that a bunch of statistics. Against the Real Madrid, until his injury, was giving an exhibition of controls oriented, left and game of backs. It is very strong, aggressive, goes well of head and no thinks it to him in what they leave him something of space. If the Barcelona does not have him controlled, could turn into a quebradero of head for the saga.
