After a week and a half very convulsed in Can Barça, the Barca team will face at Camp Nou against Granada, in the first game of Quique Setién as a culé coach
To finals of September, the FC Barcelona began to give symptoms of alarmism. It was in a party played in the stadium of The Cármenes against the Granada that finished with a humillante defeat (2-0) of the culés in hands of the Andalusian team that, remember, hardly carried some parties in First Division, since it treated of a recently risen.
And, what are the things. Precisely it will be the group nazarí the first rival of the culés in the new 'was Quique Setién', that was appointed technician of the first team of the Barça does hardly a week. The past Monday, the Cantabrian technician directed his first training like Barcelona technician and this Sunday to the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) will debut in the Camp Nou.
With the santanderino at the head of the team, the methodology already begins to change inside the club. Internal sources desvelan that the trainings are especially intense, in addition to having included a session to work the tactical appearances the same day of the party. The list of summoned also will know the same day of the meeting, unlike the stage of Ernesto Valverde, in which it knew the day before.
In said list, Setién will have four important drops. The two main will be the one of Luis Suárez, that the past Sunday was subjected to an intervention in the meniscus of the knee that will keep him moved away of the terrains of game during four months, and Frenkie of Jong, that saw the red cardboard against the RCD Espanyol and that will fulfil a party of sanction.
Besides, the Cantabrian technician will not be able to explain neither with Ousmane Dembélé, that follows recovering of his muscular injury in the thigh and will not be able to go back until February, and almost with total security will not be able to do it with Arthur Melo, that is in the final stretch of the recovery of his annoyances in the pubis. The one who could go back to the titularity would be Marc-André ter Stegen, that suffered a tendinopatía in the knee.
The press conference that offered Quique Setién this Saturday hardly shed light on the alignment with which will go out in his première against the Granada, by what so much the eleven that will choose like the tactical system will be an incógnita until shortly before the party. So much keep the 4-3-3 that employed the Txingurri or modify the drawing to the 4-4-2 or even the 5-3-2 are options very possible.
In case to keep the 4-3-3, Ansu Fati would be the attendant to accompany to Antoine Griezmann and to Leo Messi in the forward. Nevertheless, if the new technician opts for betting by the diagram that used in the Real Betis including a third central defence, Samuel Umtiti would be the benefited, going in in the saga at the side of Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet.
What himself is sure is that Setién is lover of the good football and, in consequence, fan of the 'peloteros'. Thus, in front of the absences by distinct reasons of players like Frenkie of Jong or Arthur Melo, the one who wins whole to go in in the team of start forming in the centre of the field or, in his defect, to have minutes after the rest is Riqui Puig. The canterano aims to the eleven, what would suppose his debut in the present campaign.
It was as it was, play the one who play and without depending of the diagram chosen by Setién, are possibly in front of the Barça-Granada that has raised more expectations of the history. The barcelonismo will be able to enjoy home of the ilusionante debut of a technician that has his speech and his very clear ideas and that it wants to recover the game of position and the style 'cruyffista' and 'guardiolista' that so much misses in the Camp Nou.
A Granada with win to repeat the gesta
The Granada arrives to the Camp Nou without at all that lose but with the illusion of amargarle the debut to Quique Setién. The picture nazarí arrives to the Camp Nou as tenth qualifier of LaLiga Santander, in the calm zone of the table thanks to the big start of championship that made.
The Andalusian team will have to face up to the key drop of Ángel Montoro, the engine of the centre of the field, that is sanctioned. Fede Vico, Quini and Lozano neither will be available by injury. This yes, the offensive trident formed by Darwin Machís, Doors and Roberto Soldered will have to be neutralised not to happen difficulties.
Diego Martínez, trainer of the cojunto nazarí, analysed in the previous press conference to the party the new situation of the FC Barcelona and the possibilities of his team in front of the Barcelona. "We will need to take out matrícula of honour and that they do not have the day. It is necessary to take into account a thing: we are speaking of one of the best teams of the world", said. This Sunday, the resolution of the expected meeting.
