The FC Barcelona visits this Sunday to the Athletic of Madrid in Wanda Metropolitan in which it will be the most complicated exit of what goes of League. The culés, luckily, arrive after improving a lot his provision with the triumph of the Champions League against the Borussia Dortmund. The goals of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann, that goes back to which went his house, were sufficient to ensure the mathematical pass to eighth like leaders of group.

But the League of Champions already is past and the ones of Ernesto Valverde have to centre already in LaLiga and in the Athletic. The rojiblancos do not arrive to the crash neither much less in his best moment of the course and this is something that the Barcelona have to take advantage of. The aim against the Madrilenian has to be add the three points to follow leaders, but also give a hit on of the table in the domestic competition in front of one of the favourites to win it.

The Cholo Simeone will have several important drops for the meeting and this past Saturday gave his list of summoned for the same. The Argentinian, as already it knew , has left went to Savic and to Diego Coast by injury, but also has had to do the same with José María Giménez. The charrúa was the big doubt for this commitment, but finally has not been able to arrive by fault of the physical annoyances that have had him between cottons all the week.

Those that yes will be in Wanda will be Saúl Ñíguez and Thomas Partey, that could not play in the last day by sanction, but that yes will do it against the Barça. The two midfield players form part of the vertebral column of the Athletic and his return is tremendously important for Simeone. The another novelty in the announcement is the presence of Ivan Saponjic, fichado this course and unpublished for the moment.

This is the complete list of the Cholo:

  • Antonio Adán
  • Jan Oblak
  • Arias
  • Renan Lodi
  • Felipe
  • Mario Beautiful
  • Trippier
  • Thomas
  • Koke
  • Saúl
  • Lemar
  • Marcos Llorente
  • Héctor Herrera
  • Vitolo
  • Joao Félix
  • Álvaro Morata
  • Ángel Correa
  • Saponjic

The drop of José María Giménez is tremendously sensitive for the colchoneros, since the defender charrúa is the big leader of the defence. After the course of Diego Godín, his compatriot had commissioned to lead to the saga rojiblanca and, without him, could suffer more in front of Leo Messi, Suárez and company. The Barça has to tighten to Mario Beautiful, that aims to title beside Felipe.

The turn of Griezmann to the stadium that once shouted his name is another of the news stood out of the crash. The French did not go out at all well of the Athletic and expects that him piten when it step Wanda. The Frenchman, that arrives after going back to mark at last in Champions, aims to the eleven headline after the injury of Ousmane Dembélé.
