FC Barcelona plays this Saturday from 17:00 hours against Osasuna his third League clash. Valverde's look for their second league win
The FC Barcelona will play this Saturday against the CD Osasuna his third party of this League Santander. The Barcelona began the championship with the left foot, after a hard defeat in front of the Athletic Club giving a very toneless image in Saint Mamés, but achieved to replace with a wide goleada against the Real Betis in a dazzling meeting of the Barcelona.
Against the Andalusian team, the FC Barcelona achieved to offer his best version in spite of not having three of his four cracks offensive: Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé. Antoine Griezmann dressed of 'killer' and traced back the party with two golazos, accompanied of a Rafinha Alcántara and Carles Pérez that shined with own light.
For the party that the culés will play in the Sadar this Saturday to the 17:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish), neither will be available neither the Argentinian, neither the Uruguayan neither the French, by what expects that Griezmann, Carles Pérez and Rafinha go back to form the offensive trident culé to assault the fortín navarro.
More doubts there is in the centre of the field, in which Ernesto Valverde has gone back to descartar to Carles Aleñá as it already did in the party against the Real Betis. Ivan Rakitic could recover the titularity, of the same way that Arthur Melo that also has possibilities to debut in League after not to have it done in the two first days.
Until the moment, Frenkie of Jong and Sergi Roberto have been indisputable in the medullary culé, although any of them could rest before the stop by international selections. This yes, the defence seems that it will not have novelties, with Jordi Alba, Clément Lenglet, Gerard Hammered and Nélson Semedo like headlines.
In addition to the drops of Messi, Dembélé and Suárez, Ernesto Valverde will not be able to explain neither with Junior Firpo, since the Hispanic-Brazilian suffers some annoyances in the knee and has fallen of the announcement. His place will occupy it Moussa Wagué that, as already it announced , this season has index card of the first team.
Net is the another low by injury. The place of the Brazilian will follow it occupying the canterano Iñaki Crag that, together with Carles Pérez, no longer is surprise see them in the lists. Ansu Fati, forward of the Juvenile To that left so good feelings in front of the Real Betis to his scarce 16 years, will go back to the announcement to reinforce the forward.
Against Osasuna, expects see a version of the FC Barcelona much more resembled the one who saw in front of the Betis that to which saw in front of the Athletic. The culés presionaron and dominated to pleasure against the ones of Rubi, although they will tend in in front of the navarros, a very intense team and with big illusions deposited in his return to First Division.
An Osasuna ilusionado
Osasuna Is always a tremendously complicated rival to win when it plays in the Sadar. The coliseo navarro has always an environment caldeado that hampers to the big teams obtain points easily. This year, the team of Jagoba Arrasate has the illusion of his return to the maximum category, and does it with a style of game aguerrido and brave.
The team rojillo began his career in LaLiga Santander with a surprising victory in Butarque against the Leganés, in a duel in which it decided a so much of the Chimy Ávila. The Argentinian forward has turned into the big offensive referent of Osasuna, by what it will be necessary to watch him closely beside his escuderos, Roberto Torres and Robert Ibáñez.
Ernesto Valverde already warned of the dangerous that it is Osasuna. "Independently of the record that carry home these last months, always has been a fearsome rival home. It pushes you to your goal, can not you neglect. It will want to take advantage of the push of his people to take out the party. They finish to return to First and tomorrow there will be a big environment. For us, they are three very important points. Besides, I foresee a lot of heat", said, in press conference.
They will not be able to despistarse the Barcelona in this third day, in which it expects an approach to the places of head of the table. The defeat against the Athletic minimises the failures that the culés can commit until final of season, and the Sadar is terrain cheat.
