The FC Barcelona visits this Sunday to the Alavés in Mendizorroza to play the vigesimosegunda day of LaLiga. This duel against the vitorianos is an authentic 'final' for the blaugrana, that arrive to the crash after a very hard elimination in Glass of the King in front of the Athletic Club. The culés fell in the extention in front of the bilbaínos being clearly inferior and said goodbye to the only title that won the past campaign.
The 'hit' in Saint Mamés added to the harvested a week before in Arabia against the Real Madrid. The Catalans fell in the Classical against the whites and could not reach the final of the Supercopa of Spain. No a lot before, the ones of Xavi Hernández empataron in front of the Granada, by what do not know the victory from 5 January in front of the Linares in the dieciseisavos of Glass.
After three 'pricks' consecutive, the Barça needs the triumph in Mendizorroza like the eat and thus his trainer takes out to the field practically all what has. With the drops confirmed of Ansu Fati, lesionado against the Athletic; Memphis Depay, that follows 'touched'; and Ousmane Dembélé, that continues separated until it resolve his renewal or his possible exit, Ferran Torres will be the big offensive referent of the team.
The XI of Alavés and FC Barcelona:
- XI of the Alavés: Pacheco; Aguirregabiria, Laguardia, Lejeune, Javi López; Escalante, Pina, Pere Pons, Jason; Luis Rioja and Joselu.
- XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Dest, Araújo, Hammered, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Pedri, Frenkie; Ferran, Luuk of Jong and Abde.
- Bench of the FC Barcelona: Net, Riqui Puig, Alves, Balde, Coutinho, Arnau Tenas, Lenglet, Braithwaite, Jutglà and Nico.
The big novelty of the alignment of Xavi for this decisive meeting in Vitoria is Sergiño Dest, that relieves to Dani Alves in the right side. The American had not explained almost at all from the arrival of the Brazilian and is a surprise see him in the eleven. The technician egarense probably have wanted to give him rest to the '8', that was to title so much in the Supercopa of Spain as against the Athletic and that needs a break by his age.
On the other hand, Frenkie of Jong is the attendant to substitute to the sanctioned Gavi in the midfield. It is definitely a good opportunity to claim the one who will have the Dutch in front of the vitorianos. Finally, up it goes back Luuk of Jong after fulfilling cycle of sanction in Glass. Ferran Torres and Abde will escort him in the bands and Ferran Jutglà will expect his moment in the bench.
