Xavi has made clear his intention to give prominence to Lamine Yamal by giving him his first start at Barça. However, this seems to indicate that both Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati, who were also emerging as starters against Cádiz, are relegated to the background

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Already they have given to know the 11 elected by Xavi to confront to the Cádiz, and there are some surprises. The technician of Terrassa has found in Lamine Yamal the answer to the incógnita of who will replace to Raphinha in this meeting and possibly in the next, since the Brazilian was suspended by two days because of his aggression to Gastón Álvarez of the Getafe.

Initially, especulaba that the egarense could have him given the opportunity to Ferran Torres, the one who had a remarkable pre-season and stood out in the last clash against the gaditanos in the day 22 of The League Santander. The one of Foios was chosen the 'MVP' of the party by his active participation in the game, creating the first goal with a played almost 'maradoneana'. Aunado To this, registered ten successful dribblings, five key passes, won 18 duels and had 76% of precision in the passes tried.

Xavi goes back to 'deny him' another titularity to Ansu Fati

On the other hand, the no titularity of Ansu Fati seems to be more significant, since this was an opportunity of gold to show what can contribute to the Barça. Even it could have been considered like a 'espaldarazo' for a player that only has in mind dress the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona and that has been linked with possible transfers to other clubs because of the fault of minutes in the terrain of game.

Regarding Lamine Yamal, this will be his first titularity in the first Barcelona team. Already it had participated in the opening duel of the League EA Sports against the Getafe, ingresando to the minute 76 by Oriol Romeu and leaving very good impressions when contributing disequilibrium and speed to the attack culé.

Xavi 'gave in the nail' with Lamine Yamal

The party has finished giving him the reason to Xavi Hernández. The player of Esplugues fulfilled with abstemiousness in his debut against the Cádiz. In the minutes that played, went the main offensive weapon of the team culé. His desparpajo and capacity to generate danger were a true headache for the team gaditano. The extreme caused a remarkable quantity of faults and faced the collate with an unusual maturity for his age.

Lamine Had one of the most stood out occasions of the first time and of the duel in general, a powerful shot with the left-handed that was refused by the goalkeeper Jeremías Ledesma. Has the skill to do different things and always generates expectancy on what goes to do to create danger. Definitively, one of the most stood out values in the Barça in this day.

Ferran and Ansu also answered

Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati neither remained backwards, especially the one of Foios, the one who, in spite of having few minutes in thefield , because ingresó in the minute 85 by Yamal and attained to mark the goal that ensured the victory for the Catalan club, thanks to a pass of head of Robert Lewandowski, the one who left him practically hand manually with the guardameta Argentinian. From the proportionate habilitation by the 'artilleryman' Polish, the ex of the Manchester City hit a 'galloped' that culminated with a definition of left leg by part of the Valencian.

Regarding the '10' Barcelona went in to the careo in the minute 68 by Alejandro Balde and gave him another rhythm to the clash. It went in of dynamic way and with a style 'electrical' to the terrain. Lamentably, for him and the Barcelonan square, although it attained to mark, his so much did not go up to the marker because the '9' of the combined Catalan was in position of offside in the previous action to the annotation.

What himself remained clear in this party is that, independently of who was headline in the right extreme of the Barça, Xavi has several options to choose to a player in this position. Even, Ez Abde, the one who also can play in this band, went in to the careo and gave him another tonic, adding rebeldía and irreverence that do that the name of the Moroccan do not lose between so many players stood out.
