FC Barcelona debuts this Friday in LaLiga 2019-20, and wants to go back to the championship where it left it, fighting each week for the title. The catalans play against Athletic Club without Leo Messi but with a team qualified to conquer San Mamés
The stop has lengthened during some months, but this Friday goes back LaLiga with an exciting Athletic Club-FC Barcelona. The Catalans arrive to Saint Mamés to start with his career to the third consecutive title, and expand a mark that already is fixed in eight of the last eleven. The Day 1 will not be at all easy for the culés, that from the 21:00 hours will look for a victory that allow them recover the tournament where left it, installed in the leadership.
The announcement of the FC Barcelona arrives with some novelties, and the main are the drops of Leo Messi and Net Walled. With permission of the guardameta, that splits like acting theorist, the absence of the Argentinian is the most stood out, because Ernesto Valverde loses to the director of this orchestra. The extremeño also has left went by technical decision to Jean-Clair Todibo, Arthur, Moussa Wagué and Arturo Vidal, and will have to do another descarte because it has travelled with 19 players in his list.
Although the first step is not definite, always is better to give it with three points and good feelings, something that the Barcelona will treat to tie up before returning to the City Condal. The 'lions' are not a simple opponent and will not give by defeated in any moment, but the team barcelonista has spare quality to heave with the triumph. This is our forecast for the party:
Possible alignments of the Athletic Club-FC Barcelona
- AthleticClub : Unai Simón; Layer, Yeray, Iñigo, Yuri; Unai López, Dani García; Of Marcos, Raúl García, Muniain; and Williams.
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Of Jong; Griezmann, Suárez and Dembélé.
Marc-André ter Stegen has lost to the that has to be his escudero at all more start the course, but anybody doubts that the goal of the Barça is in good hands. The stops of the German have been determinants in the conquest of a lot of trophies, and this year pretends that the dynamic follow, by what his seriousness and concentration under sticks will be factors to take into account after the pitido initial of the referee.
The defence of gala has not changed, and could appear in the first challenge suspender belt. In this retaguardia remodelled, Nélson Semedo and Gerard Hammered seem to have the place ensured because his acting theorists -Wagué and Todibo- have not travelled, although it will be necessary to see if Valverde does not back and keeps to Sergi Roberto like carrilero. The most interesting battle is the one of the central left-handed, in which Clément Lenglet could oust again to Samuel Umtiti whose titularity neither would be a surprise. To complete the left profile will appear Jordi Alba, although Junior Firpo arrives with many win to learn and to begin to 'steal him' some minutes.
The medullary has a lot of distinct alternatives, what turns it into one of the most difficult lines to predict. The míster took care to Sergio Busquets along the pre-season and subtracted him minutes, but seems complicated that it go to forget of him in a so important commitment. Ivan Rakitic has arrived in full form and could remain in the eleven initial, as well as a Frenkie of Jong that can cover them to both but would certify a room of machines with muscle and quality. It does not be necessary to forget neither of Sergi Roberto, to the one who the trainer appreciates by the "dynamism" that offers in the centre of the field, neither neither of Rafinha Alcántara or Carles Aleñá, that shined in turn them.
In absence of Leo Messi, the Barça has an answer of the most interesting, the trident of Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé. In the friendly of preparation could check that the two French understand to perfection, and the mordiente that was missing them put it the Uruguayan when going back of the Glass America, confirming that the three have found a promising tuning. After several proofs without commitment, now has arrived the hour of the truth, and of his contribution will depend if the Barcelona celebrate a new victory.
