Calendar of FC Barcelona

With the pressure against, the FC Barcelona visits this Sunday 2 May to Valencia in Mestalla. The culés, third in the classification of LaLiga, are forced to add the three points in front of the group 'ché', after having lost in front of the Granada in the Camp Nou. The Barça had to 'shot' the leadership of the classification and left to happen the opportunity, by what from this time on will not be allowed the errors and only will cost to add of three in three.

Ronald Koeman, that will not be in the bench because it will have to fulfil sanction, will have to modify his alignment regarding which took out in front of the Granada to present to a more reliable and offensive team that can contest him the party to the Valencians. With the party in front of the Athletic in looks it, the neerlandés will not be able to reserve at all and will have to jump to Mestalla with his 'heavy weights' to return to Barcelona with the three points. To continuation, our forecast of the alignments.

Possible alignments of Valencia-FC Barcelona

  • XI of Valencia: Cillessen; Correia, Paulista, Guillamón, Lato, Gayá; Wass, Racic, Soler; Maxi and Guedes.
  • XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Hammered, Lenglet; Dest, Of Jong, Busquets, Pedri, Jordi Alba; Messi and Griezmann.

Ter Stegen

Under the three sticks there are not doubts, Marc-André ter Stegen will keep on being to title as it has been it largely of the season. The German continues being the angel guardian of the Barça and his exert has been key so that the Barcelona group keep alive in LaLiga and with options for the doublet. This yes, will have to be very attentive and not losing the communication with the Barcelona defenders to avoid errors that condemn to the culés.


Although Óscsr Mingueza and Gerard Hammered were the two big signalled in the defeat of the Barça in front of the Granada, the most likely is that they keep on being headline, only that with a called attention and with the company of Clément Lenglet in replacement of Samuel Umtiti. It fits to remember that the defensive saga with three players has been a 'relief' for the culés in this year, but will be paramount that are concentrated and focused at all times.

Also it exists the possibility that Ronald Araújo cuele in the alignment in replacement of Mingueza, but the charrúa has lost a lot of leadership in the approach of Koeman since it recovered of his injury. However, continue being a central very important and a 'rock' in the area for the culés.

Dest-Of Jong-Busquets-Pedri-Jordi Alba

The centre of the field would have the novelties of the titularity of Sergiño Dest, in replacement of Sergi Roberto, and of Pedri González, that was acting in front of the Granada to give him rest, relieved by Ilaix Moriba. However, for a crash of so much importance, the most likely is that Koeman bet by his mediocentro 'of confidence' and go out with the five of the last months.

With this approach, is worth it to remember, the Barcelona group improves his offensive function with the sides (Dest and Alba) converted practically in extremes. To his time, have fewer defensive functions because they are 'backed' by the line of three. On the other hand, so much Pedri as Of Jong go back the best allies of the forwards, whereas Busquets visits fewer metres and directs the centor of the field.


In the last parties, especially from the absence by annoyances in the pubis of Dembélé, Koeman has opted for jointing to Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann in the Barcelona forward and the results have been very good. So much in the final of the Glass of Rey, as in front of the Getafe and Villarreal, showed that have a lot of together spark and that combine to perfection.

In front of the Granada, in the last day, the only so much of the culés in the party, annotated by 'The Flea', was born of a fantastic manoeuvre of the 'Principito', that already has given him five assistances to the Argentinian in what it goes of season and presents like his best partner of face to the goal.
