FC Barcelona plays this Sunday from 9:00 pm against Betis their second League clash. Valverde's look for their first league win against an Andalusian team that already won last season at the Camp Nou
The FC Barcelona will play this Sunday against the Real Betis his second party of this League Santander. The culés are quite needed after falling in the inaugural day in front of the Athletic Club in Saint Mamés by 1-0. The golazo of Chilean of Aduriz in the last minutes sank to the Barça in a crash in which it did not deserve to win, but that neither deserved to lose.
The culés will have in in front of a Betis that also deserved more in his première suspender belt. The béticos lost against the Real Valladolid by 1-2 by another goal in the last minutes. The ones of Rubi had more occasions that the pucelanos, but forgave a lot up and finished it paying. They need to mark what before and look forward to to do it in the Camp Nou this Sunday from the 21:00 hours.
The two groups will have sensitive drops by fault of the always inopportune injuries. By part of the Barcelona, neither Leo Messi, neither Luis Suárez, neither Ousmane Dembélé will be in the meeting for being of medical drop. The Uruguayan and the French lesionaron against the Athletic and were safe drop, but the Argentinian trained two days this week with the group and seemed that it went to arrive. Finally, the '10' could not train this Saturday and Valverde has decided to leave him out of the announcement.
With the trident title of the past year KO, the 'Txingurri' will have to throw of inventiveness to do the forward against the verdiblancos. Antoine Griezmann is the only that has the place 100% ensured and will have to exert of leader in front of the absence of the other heavy weights. The Frenchman has to take a step forward and show his best version in front of the Betis. It will play with more freedom that never and will be able to move by all the front of attack, something that, in theory, has to favour to his qualities.
Beside the French could play Rafinha Alcántara and Carles Pérez. The Hispanic-Brazilian was doubt by fault of a gastroenteritis, but finally has recovered to time and will be in front of the Betis. It has been one of the best of the pre-season and also had minutes of quality in front of the Athletic. Presumably, it will play thrown to the right side or of false '9'. Carles Pérez could complete the line of attack in front of the fault of effective. It is the forward that has more manually Valverde and in the left manages well.
The centre of the field also could have novelties regarding the party of Saint Mamés. Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic, that sucked bench in front of the bilbaínos, could go back to the titularity, the same that the past campaign. The two would play to sort out in a midfield that against the Athletic did not have order. Frenkie Of Jong aims to be his companion after being the best of the three means that played in the debut suspender belt.
The Betis will try to surprise a year more
It is necessary to remember that the Real Betis is the last team that was able to win in the Camp Nou. The verdiblancos won the course gone through 3-4 with goals of Junior Firpo, now in the Barça, Joaquín, Celso and Channels. Two of these four footballers no longer are, but the santanderino and the gaditano will play this Sunday in the Barcelona stadium to try reeeditar the triumph.
Rubi Has the drops of Borja Churches, that is lesionado, and of Joel Oaks, that was expelled against the Valladolid and is sanctioned. They are two remarkable absences for the Betis, that will have to play in the Camp Nou without his recently fichado tip title and without his archer title. In his place will play Loren and Dani Martín, respectively. In spite of these two drops, the sevillanos have a good team to the that has added him a piece of luxury like Fekir. The mediapunta Frenchman will put the quality beside Channels and will be one of the players to which the Barcelona will have to tie in short.
