After concretising the pass to the semifinals of the Glass of Rey, the FC Barcelona takes action in LaLiga Santander 2022-2023 with the visit to the Girona in one of the derbis Catalan, this Saturday from the 21:00 hours. The ones of Xavi Hernández will look for a new victory in front of a picture albirrojo that has left several surprises in this season.
For the occasion, Xavi will not follow without having the sanctioned Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres, and expects that also of rest to several footballers that have been very demanded in the last weeks. Thus, they will be varied the rotations in the XI of the Barcelona. To continuation, our forecast:
The likely alignments of the Girona-FC Barcelona
- Girona FC: Gazzaniga; Arnau, Juanpe, Bernardo, Miguel; Romeu, Aleix García; Toni Villa, Iván Martín, Riquelme; and Spanish.
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Koundé, Alonso, Alba; Busquets, of Jong, Gavi; Raphinha, Ansu Fati, Dembélé.
The guardameta of Mönchengladbach is indisputable under the three sticks of the Barça, especially by the big season that is signing. In LaLiga only has fit six goals in 17 parties contested and aims to remain with the Zamora for the first time. In front of the Girona, will have to be very attentive to footballers like Riquelme or Spanish.
In the defence foresees that they will have a few changes and that, in fact, Jules Koundé will be the only that will repeat in the XI regarding the party in front of the Real Sociedad, to share in the axis of the defence beside Marcos Alonso. In the right-handed side would appear Sergi Roberto, whereas in the left-handed would be Jordi Alba the elected.
Although the system with four midfield players is the one who better has worked for the Barça in this start of 2023, against the Girona the most likely is that Xavi of rest to Pedri, by what would have the option to arm a line of four with Franck Kessié or, by the contrary, go back to the medullary of three footballers with Busquets of pivote, beside Frenkie of Jong and Gavi of interiors.
With the doubt of if they will play three or four midfield players, the lína of the attack also generates a lot of doubts, but the most likely is that Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembélé appear from the beginning. Raphinha Would be the elected in case that the trainer egarense bet for playing with two extremes.
