Calendar of FC Barcelona

Marc Guiu (17 years) and Pau Víctor (21) are the main novelties in the list of summoned by Xavi Hernández for the Granada-FC Barcelona of the Sunday. The drops of Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski, both lesionados, have opened the doors of the first team to two of the main 'jewels' of the filial, two forwards that can see minutes in the final stretch of the party in the New Stadium of The Cármenes.

For Xavi, the options in attack reduce to his trident title (Joao Félix, Lamine Yamal and Ferran Torres), besides the possibility to plant to Gavi like extreme by left. The injuries of Frenkie of Jong and Pedri also leave to the short club of spare in the medullary, being for the time being Fermín López the only reliable variant for the one of Terrassa in front of the low state of form of the captain Sergi Roberto.

The reasons of Xavi to quote to Marc Guiu and Pau Víctor

For Xavi, further of his youth, so much Marc Guiu like Pau Víctor are smart to give the jump and help to the first team. The first comes 'wetting' with regularity in the Juvenile To, converting the 0-1 partial in front of the Port wine in the UEFA Youth League between week. With 1.90 m of height, the forward of 17 years is lethal in the aerial game, in addition to standing out by his physical power and the good hit with both legs.

By his part, Víctor has begun very well the season with the Barça Atlètic. The player of 21 years adds 4 goals in the Group 1 of the First RFEF and in the filial already compare him with Ferran Jutglà by his capacity as '9' born. However, the canterano also can play like left-handed extreme, a characteristic that turns him into the main candidate to freshen the offensive trident in Granada. Technically it is not the showiest, but his main virtue is the game without balloon, finding spaces to be almost always very situated and convert.
