Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona visits The Sadar in the day 26 of LaLiga Santander this Saturday from the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish), after the historical traced back in front of the Seville in the Glass of Rey. The culés, that the next week will travel to Paris for the turn of the eighth of final of the Champions League, could see forced to rotar his initial alignment, but Ronald Koeman is conscious that it will need to his best pieces to achieve an importantísima victory in Pamplona that would keep him in the second square of the domestic competition.

The blaugrana do not have to trust of an Osasuna that, if by something has stood out in this season, has been by his defensive solidity. The 'rojillos' are a block in the low part of the field and a danger with the high pressure and, in front of the need to add the three units, the Dutch trainer of the Barça would see forced to postpone the rest to his more important footballers for no 'puncture' in Navarra. To continuation, our forecast of the onces of Osasuna and FC Barcelona.

Possible alignments of the Osasuna-FC Barcelona

  • Osasuna: Sergio Herrera; Nacho Vidal, Aridane, David García, Juan Cruz; Torres, Torró, Moncayola, Rubén García; Calleri and Budimir.
  • FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Dest, Mingueza, Umtiti, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, Of Jong, Pedri; Dembélé and Messi.

Ter Stegen

Marc-André ter Stegen shows week after week that is the angel guardian of the blaugrana under the three sticks. Already it has added three goals to consecutive zero and in the last party, in front of the Seville, dressed of hero to save a penalti of Lucas Ocampos in the second part that had been able to mean the tie in the marker. In front of the Osasuna, surely will not have a simple night, by the big level that are showing the attackers 'rojillos', especially Budimir.


In the last weeks, Ronald Koeman has bet by the 5-3-2, that has given him results very positive, and the most likely is that it repeat the system in The Sadar. However, it will be forced to do a change regarding the last party (Umtiti by Hammered), but would keep to the sides (Jordi Alba by left and Sergiño Dest by the right) like carrileros and a defence of three, with Umtiti, Clément Lenglet and Óscar Mingueza.

Although it is the best defensive line that, in these moments, can have the group blaugrana, the reality is that it could suffer more changes to give him rest to players like Alba or Dest, that will be headlines probably in Paris. In this sense, does not have to descartarse that Koeman go back the defence of four and Junior Firpo jump to the field to substitute to the Hospitalet, whereas Mingueza occupies the right band.

Busquets-Of Jong-Pedri

With the system implemented by the technician blaugrana, Sergio Busquets has remained like only mediocentro, whereas Frenkie of Jong and Pedri González go out like interiors. It is the medullary that better has worked him to Koeman since it landed to the City Condal, but could have changes for the party in front of the Osasuna to give him rest to the players (especially to Pedri, that finish to recover of an injury).


So much the 'Mosquito' as the crack Argentinian have exploded his best version in the last parties with the new system, turning into the big goleadores of the FC Barcelona. With this approach, Leo Messi is freer for replegarse until the centre of the field, look for the balloon and do magic with his creativity in the field, something that also benefits to Dembélé, the one who has more freedom to approach to put it rival.
