After falling in the Copa del Rey, FC Barcelona should focus on LaLiga. Real Betis promises not to be a simple opponent in what will be the return of Quique Setién to Benito Villamarín
Win always is a requirement for the FC Barcelona because of the high expectations that generates a club of such dimensions. But, if besides we add the conflict between Leo Messi, Barcelona captain, and Éric Abidal, technical secretary culé, and the back elimination in the Glass of the King to hands of the Athletic Club, the need to add the three points goes back even more vital.
The FC Barcelona will close this Sunday to the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) a catastrophic week so much to sportive level like institutional. To day of today, has signed a truce between the changing room and the directive, in addition to remarking that in Saint Mamés, in spite of the defeat, the team of Quique Setién worked much better that in previous days, generating numerous occasions of danger.
The rival of the 23ª day will be the Real Betis and, the stage, Benito Villamarín that will receive to the second classified of LaLiga Santander knowing that it already was able to defeat to the culés does a year in the Camp Nou. Then, the technician verdiblanco was Quique Setién that now will return like rival and like trainer of one of the big applicants to the title.
In press conference, the Cantabrian has remembered that knows perfectly to the footballers of the Real Betis, by what maybe have the key to take out three points that are more expected that never. Setién Has the mission to follow with the mejoría showed by the team in Saint Mamés but, this time, doing effective the occasions of which have the team.
For this, will not have of several important players. The first of them is Gerard Hammered that, in addition to being sanctioned pro accumulation of yellow cardboards in League, also suffers one overloads in the aductor that could prolong his drop some party more. Thus, Setién has seen forced to throw of subsidiary with the inclusion of Ronald Araújo in the list of summoned.
Of course, the Cantabrian technician neither will be able to have the two stars lesionadas of long length: Luis Suárez, that was taken part quirúrgicamente of the meniscus of his knee and that will be four months of drop; and Ousmane Dembélé, that broke the sinew of the biceps femoral and that it will be taken part the Tuesday to lose what subtracts of season. Besides, Net neither went in in the announcement since it drags a sprain of ankle.
Waiting for signing to a '9' to cover the index card of Dembélé, do not expect too many novelties in the eleven headline of Setién to measure to his ex team. In the eleven, will go in Samuel Umtiti with all security for suplir to Hammered and, besides, Arturo Vidal, already recovered, also has possibilities to be of the game.
The alignment of the Barça could be the formed by Ter Stegen in the goal; line of four in defence with Nélson Semedo in the right, Jordi Alba in the left and Clément Lenglet and Umtiti in the axis; trio of midfield players with Sergio Busquets, Frenkie of Jong and Arthur; and leading with Ansu Fati, Antoine Griezmann and Leo Messi.
The Raise won to the Barça in the first turn
The Real Betis is making a discreet campaign, that has gone of less to more but that follows without fulfilling with the expectations that had put in summer after the course of Quique Setién and the arrival of Rubi to the bench of Benito Villamarín. The team sevillano is the 13º qualifier with 28 points, very far so much of the descent as of the European zone.
The Catalan technician showed optimist of face to the party against the FC Barcelona: "we Need the victory was the one who was the rival. It comes a big team and of the subject of the drop of Hammered or any another goes down already tenemios the learning of the gone, that was missing them Messi and lost 5-2. This does not generate us any type of confidence. They will come angered by have not happened the Glass, but home are strong, well, convinced that it can be the day to win him to the Barça".
For the party, it is necessary to remember that it will not be able to have the lesionados Juanmi Jiménez, Alfonso Pedraza and Andrés Saved. The eleven headline could be the formed by Joel; Emerson, Mandi, Bartra, Álex Moreno; Guido, Aleñá, Channels; Joaquín, Fekir and Loren. Édgar And Borja Churches also have big options to play in front of the culés. Play the one who play, the Betis is a dangerous rival.
