Diego Pablo Simeone has already very defined the alignment that will take out against the FC Barcelona this Saturday in Wanda Metropolitan, but even so it still has to think very very some positions, with the aim to attain the best possible performance of his and also having in mind that many of his players finish to return of parties with the selection.

So much the Athletic like the FC Barcelona could see affected by the wear of the 'Virus FIFA', but what yes has clear Simeone is the way in that it will play in front of the Barcelona group this Saturday: high pressure, repliegue, speed to the contragolpe and, in definite, the style of game that carries years characterising to the Athletic of Madrid more 'warrior'.

Regarding the players that will reflect this game on the lawn, exist some doubts. Jan Oblak will be immovable in the goal, whereas Juanfran, Savic, Lucas and Filipe Luis foresees that they form the defensive saga. But this Friday already have trained with the group Vrsaljko, Godín and Giménez, by what any of them could go in unexpectedly in the alignment title if it is in good physical conditions.

The Athletic wants to plant face to the Barça

In the centre of the field, Gabi and Saúl Ñíguez aim to the double defensive pivote, with Koke Resurrection like lung in the right band and Yannick Carrasco in the left. Antoine Griezmann will play of second forward, as it is usual, and the main doubt will be to know who will accompany him in the flank of attack to culminate the played.

Gameiro, Correa and Vietto are feasible options, but everything seems to indicate that Ángel Correa splits with advantage, because of the good level that is showing in the last months in comparison with the others two forwards. What is very clear is that, play the one who play in Wanda Metropolitan with the T-shirt rojiblanca, will have very very internalised the strategy to be followed to hamper the game of the Barça.
