FC Barcelona receives Alavés this Saturday at the Camp Nou on the 18th day of LaLiga. The Catalans need to win and play well before their fans after the tie in the Classic, in which Madrid was superior
The FC Barcelona receives this Saturday to the Alavés in the Camp Nou to try forget his bad night in front of the Real Madrid. The culés empataron to zero in front of the whites and follow leaders, but left very bad feelings to collective level. The team did not play at all well and the merengues were upper in the global computation of the meeting. In front of the vitorianos, the blaugrana have to resarcirse and give him reasons to his fans to go back to believe in them.
Ernesto Valverde could take out the called eleven of gala of this last month in the Barça. The trainer barcelonista, with Busquets already recovered, could have the same footballers that against the Madrid, changing to Sergi Roberto by the one of Badia. But the extremeño does not have it of the all clear and has two doubts in defence and another in the centre of the field. Players like Samuel Umtiti or Carles Aleñá could have his opportunity this Saturday.
Possible alignments of the FC Barcelona-Alavés
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Of Jong; Messi, Luis Suárez and Griezmann.
- Alavés: Pachecho; Ximo Navarro, Laguardia, Ely, Duarte; Aleix Vidal, Pons, Manu García, Wakaso, Burke; Lucas Pérez.
The archer germano arrives to the party against the Alavés after a good performance in the Classical. The Real Madrid did not put him to proof too much, but when it did it, appeared as always to save to his team. After failing against the Mallorca and the Real Sociedad, the German needed a good performance in front of the merengues. Against the vitorianos will try to leave his door to zero by second consecutive day.
There are two clear doubts in the defence culé of face to the crash against the Alavés. The first is in the right side, with Sergi Roberto calling to the door of the eleven. Semedo Was to title against the Madrid, but the Catalan finished the crash of carrilero when the luso was substituted. Valverde Could opt by the ex of the Benfica to follow giving him minutes after having recovered of his injury does relatively little. The another doubt is to know if Lenglet, that has four yellow, will rest so that it play Umtiti. The ex of the Lyon deserves have more minutes and the ex sevillista carries several weeks to an inferior level to the that is used to to show. It could be the perfect crash to go back to test the couple Hammered-Umtiti that so many joys gave them to the blaugrana in the past.
Arthur follows without having recovered of his injury, but Busquets seems that it already is to 100% and that it will be to title against the alavesistas. The Catalan could not be against the Real Madrid and Rakitic and Roberto accompanied to Of Jong in the half. The Barça missed him in the exit of balloon, but, luckily, Valverde will be able to throw of him this Saturday. Rakitic Could rest so that they go in Aleñá or Arturo Vidal, since it contested the 90 minutes in the Classical. Besides, the Balkan did not have neither much less his day in front of the merengues and could be the perfect occasion so that Carles or the Chilean have minutes of start.
Luis Suárez and Leo Messi are intocables and, as it could not be of another way, will be in the eleven in front of the Alavés. The charrúa has a yellow cardboard, but the injuries of Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati do that the 'Txingurri' can not pose do without he. Antoine Griezmann also has all the ballots to play by this same reason. The French was not well against the whites in the first time, but improved in the second. Valverde Wants that the trident follow improving and wait that the three can be decisive in front of the Basques.
