Ronald Koeman could recover to one of his key players of face to the party against the Real Madrid that will contest in the Camp Nou next Saturday
After having saldado with a goleada the first duel of the present edition of the Champions League, to the FC Barcelona will touch him measure to the eternal rival. Next Saturday, the world of the football will go back to stop to put his eyes in the Camp Nou, where the team of Ronald Koeman will measure to the Real Madrid (16:00 hours, peninsular schedule Spanish).
Of face to the party against the group madridista, the Dutch trainer will not be able to have total security with Marc-André ter Stegen, that follows recovering after his operation in the sinew rotuliano, neither neither with Samuel Umtiti, whose annoyances in the knee follow him turning into an indefinite drop. Nevertheless, it could have a good news regarding high: the one of Jordi Alba.
This Thursday, the Catalan side has trained with normality with his mates without resentirse of the injury in the isquiotibiales that racks him from the start of LaLiga Santander. To day of today, still does not have the high and his availability of face to the Classical still is in the air, but the fact to having been able to train with normality gives him options of face to a so important duel like the one of the Real Madrid.
The final decision will depend on the feelings that have the own Jordi Alba in the training of this Friday, of what see Ronald Koeman in said session and of what think the medical services of the FC Barcelona. Anyway, his titularity antoja something complicated since the Catalan side does not play a party from the past 4 October, when lesionó against the Seville.
It is necessary to take into account that the calendar is tightened and that a relapse of Jordi Alba could do that it lost other so many parties, included the one of the next Wednesday of Champions League against the Juventus of Turín. It is thus that, in spite of the importance of the Classical against the Real Madrid, Ronald Koeman will not risk with the defence more than the necessary.
Sergiño Dest Would be his substitute
If finally Jordi Alba can not play, Sergiño Dest would be his substitute in the left side. Although the ideal position of the international American is in the right band, the needs of the staff do that it act in the contrary side. In spite of that the natural spare of the of L'Hospitalet would be Junior Firpo, the North American has more rhythm of competition and is by on.
