They finish the proofs for Ernesto Valverde. The FC Barcelona has played five parties during the pre-season in which the technician extremeño has been able to test the state of form of his footballers and do some that another experiment. But the next party goes seriously, since it will be the première in LaLiga Santander of the team and no longer there is more margin for proofs.

The FC Barcelona will inaugurate the championship this Friday to the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule) in Saint Mamés against the Athletic Club of Bilbao, a very complicated party in a field in which the culés can leave points if they are not very fine. In spite of that there are some doubts, the eleven of the Txingurri for said party already would be outlined.


If few doubts had about the presence of Marc-André ter Stegen like titling in the first eleven of the Barça in LaLiga, the injury of Net, that had done a big pre-season, has done them disappear completely. The cancerbero German, consolidated like one of the best of the world in his place, will defend the Barcelona sticks in Saint Mamés.


Neither there are doubts in the defensive line. In the second party against the Naples, Ernesto Valverde bet by the theorists titled and these answered with security and solidity. Nélson Semedo Will occupy the right side; Jordi Alba, the left; and Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet will play in the axis of the saga. Any saga that do not have these four names will be a total surprise.

Centre of the field

The only line that houses doubts. Frenkie Of Jong is the only fixed in the medullary -given his excelso performance in pre-season- and everything aims to that will go accompanied of Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic. This yes, the partidazo of Sergi Roberto and Carles Aleñá at the side of the Dutch gives them options to burst into in the eleven. Arthur and Arturo Vidal, without hardly minutes in pre-season, would begin in the bench.


Ernesto Valverde will not risk at all with Leo Messi,​ lesionado in the sóleo. Thus, the offensive trident for Saint Mamés is more than clear: Luis Suárez, maximum goleador of the pre-season in spite of having stray two parties; Ousmane Dembélé, one of the best of the Barça in the pre-season; and Antoine Griezmann, flamante signing culé and increasingly adapted.
