FC Barcelona receives Deportivo Alavés at the Camp Nou for the beginning of the 'post-Koeman' era and under the command of the new interim coach, Sergi Barjuan
New day of LaLiga Santander in which the FC Barcelona needs 'shake' of all the institutional problems that have taken place in the last days, because the situation that live in the domestic championship is more than worrisome and is necessary that begin to recortar distances with the leadership to avoid a greater disaster. It will be an exceptional situation because the Barça destituyó to Ronald Koeman does some days and Sergi Barjuan will be the attendant to assume the challenge to direct to the first team in a crucial night so that the Barça 'add' to the fight by the title.
The rival is the Sportive Alavés in a party that will begin to the 21:00 hours of this Saturday 30 October. The Barça finalised the day 11 in the ninth position, with 15 points, to nine of the busy leadership by the Real Sociedad and after a painful defeat in front of the Ray Vallecano that cost him the place to Ronald Koeman. The good news, is that in front will have to a group that has had a very irregular start of season and that finds very near of the red zone of the classification.
The Barça receives to the 'babazorros' with four points of advantage in the table, and a party less, but with a lot of doubts around because Sergi Barjuan has had very little time to work with the team (two trainings) and has important drops in the staff. They are many the problems that has the team, but the interim technician already has confessed that "it is difficult to change the things in little time. The style is innegociable and have to hammer a lot of stone. We are finding the formula to have more presence and be leading with the ball. At the end it has to go in the pellet. I see them to all very ready", by what there is good feelings.
In any case, it is necessary to keep the feet on the earth because the Barça comes to add a sinfín of problems with Koeman, that did not achieve to give him north to the Barcelona and signed to be a 'despropósito' in all his decisions and reactions. However, with what there is in the staff, has to be sufficient to win to the Alavés in the Camp Nou.
The Alavés, with lights and shadows
The picture directed by Javi Alley arrives to the Camp Nou after winning by the minimum to the Elche (1-0) in Mendizorroza. The victory served him to move away of the zone of descent, with nine units, but that also is in 'danger', a factor that can be of double edge for the Barcelona, because surely they will want to add three new points that allow him approached more to the half of the table. In any case, the Barça has to be very attentive because, in spite of that in the second turn of the past season golearon (5-1), in the first party did not achieve more than a tie (1-1).
Like this then , the Alavés arrives with nine units, but with two consecutive parties winning, whereas the Barça does it with two defeats followed. First they won to the Cádiz (0-2) and afterwards the last, already mentioned, in front of the Elche. It is necessary to remember, also, that the ones of Alley won to the Athletic of Madrid in the sixth day, by the minimum (1-0) and that did to live to the 'colchoneros' an authentic nightmare in his field, although they came of five defeats. They do not hide in front of the big.
Barjuan, with drops and 'signings'
In the side of the Barça, it is necessary to have very in account that there are important drops in the changing room, as the one of Ansu Fati, that is with annoyances in his right knee (the one who was not operated) and will be went by a week or ten days, at most. Neither it goes in in the announcement Frenkie of Jong, the one who suffers an elongación in the biceps femoral of the right thigh, confirmed after the Classical. It adds to the list of players no available, beside Pedri, Araújo and Martin Braithwaite.
However, there is good news. Sergi Barjuan confirmed that Ousmane Dembélé already was recovered and there are possibilities that it see minutes in front of the Alavés, although probably it do it from the bench. In any case, the interim trainer signalled that "Dembélé could go in in the announcement" and that "all those that are have possibilities to play".
