FC Barcelona receives Atlético de Madrid, in Montjuïc, in a match in which Xavi Hernández could repeat the lineup from the clash against Porto. The culés need their most reliable and effective version on the pitch
The Estadi Olímpic Lluís Compannys will house one of the most thrilling parties of LaLiga. The FC Barcelona will receive to the Athletic of Madrid, in the corresponding crash to the fifteenth day of the domestic championship, in a party in which any of the two can fail and in which the third square is at stake. The balloon will throw to film from the 21:00 hours (9:00 PM CET) and the expectation is maximum.
The previous of the clash has been starred by the statements 'hot' of Joao Félix or Antoine Griezmann, two players that are called to speak on the lawn and be leading for his respective teams. In key Barça, everything seems to indicate to that the Portuguese will be one of the offensive leaders and that Xavi Hernández could repeat the alignment that already gave him success against the Port wine. To continuation, our forecast of the XI:
Likely alignments of the FC Barcelona-Athletic of Madrid of League
- XI of the FC Barcelona: Iñaki Crag, Araujo, Koundé, Iñigo, Cancel, Of Jong, Gündogan, Pedri, Joao Félix, Raphinha and Lewandowski.
- XI of the Athletic of Madrid: Oblak, Nahuel, Giménez, Witsel, Beautiful, Lino, Llorente, Koke, Of Paul, Griezmann and Morata.
The guardameta of Alicante is taking advantage of the opportunities that is adding, by the drop of Marc-André ter Stegen. Against the group rojiblanco will add his third consecutive titularity and comes of an extraordinary performance against the Port wine. It was key to keep 'alive' to the Barça when worse were happening it. This Sunday, Griezmann and Morata are his maximum threats.
Xavi Hernández could give continuity to the formula that experienced against the Portuguese to defensive level, so that the team was more compensated. Araújo Aims to repeat in the right side, whereas the couple of head offices would be conformed by Jules Koundé and Iñigo Martínez, the one who has turned into one of the indisputable players of the team. Joao Cancel, 'MVP' against the Port wine, would go back to appear by the left 'dressed' of extreme. The defence culé has to find the form of 'desactivar' to Griezmann and Morata, the players with more danger of the Athletic.
The centre of the field was the point diferenciador of the Barça in the second half against the 'dragons'. Between more together can be and more combine, the team can improve exponencialmente. It is thus that everything seems to indicate to that will appear the same protagonists: Frenkie of Jong in the base of the played, beside Ílkay Gündogan and Pedri González. Between more take part, participate and distribute game the two interiors, more comfortable will be the culés. The team needs, as it happened in front of the Port wine, that the room of machines was the attendant to carry the reins of the clash.
In spite of that Joao Félix was the attendant to complete the traced back in Champions League, to the leading is missing him a touch of shine and solvency. The two extremes were especially desacertados and have to take a step forward, especially a Raphinha that, although it tried it a few times, accelerated ahead of time or took the erroneous decision in the last pass. Both have the possibility to claim , as Robert Lewandowski that only signed a shot in the last party. It needs to go back to 'connect' with the team. Lamine Yamal and Ferran Torres would split like alternatives.
