Aleñá has gone from the most absolute ostracism to play 3 consecutive games. Ernesto Valverde has trusted him again and the youth player has responded to that trust. He has taken advantage of Arthur's loss and could have minutes in the Classic

Carles Aleñá had to be one of the footballers that took a step forward this season in the FC Barcelona. After a complete campaign in the first team, the canterano had to confirm like an important player in the staff. In pre-season, Ernesto Valverde signalled precisely this and seemed that it went to explain a lot with him, but has not been like this. After putting him to title in the debut against the Athletic, the 'Txingurri' substituted him to the rest and left to have he without apparent explanation.

The one of Mataró has been practically without going in in the announcements from August and everything aimed that it would go out in January to have minutes. He was being the greater victim of the tremenda competition that there is in the centre of the Barcelona field and did not seem that his situation went to change. But, luckily for Aleñá, the injury of Arthur​ and his perseverance have finish causing that Valverde retell with him.

After happening in the bench or in the terracing more than three months and half, the 'Txingurri' gave him minutes against the Mallorca two weeks ago. The technician of Viandar of the Edge rewarded of this form the work of the midfield player, that went out to fault of little less than 20 minutes for the end of the meeting. In this while saw him better of form of what expected and left several details of quality.

With the first place of group already ensured, the trainer extremeño also had Aleñá for the Champions League. The one of the Maresme was to title against the Inter and completed a party more than remarkable. Arthur followed lesionado against the Real Sociedad this weekend and Valverde, after seeing the good level showed by the Catalan, also decided to give him minutes against the donostiarras. The '19' went out to fault of 17 minutes for the conclusion of the crash and left once again good feelings.

Aleñá Could have minutes in the Classical

Still it does not know if Arthur goes to be able to play the Classical of this Wednesday. If the Brazilian does not arrive, everything seems to indicate that Aleñá will go summoned and who know if it could go back to play in the second part. After having three opportunities followed and surrender well, Valverde could have he also for the second time against the Real Madrid. After being entirely out of the Barça, play a party of this level could be a subidón of important morals for a footballer called to be key in the Barcelona of the future.

The most likely is that Sergio Busquets, Frenkie of Jong and Ivan Rakitic repeat like headlines in front of the Madrid. The Dutch and the Catalan are intocables and the Croat, without Arthur in the team, seem to be the option preferred of the 'Txingurri' to complete the midfield. Arturo Vidal and Aleñá, at the expense of how evolve Arthur, would be the two alternatives of the technician culé in the bench. To go out in the second time, the Chilean would give him push, character and arrival to the centre of the field, whereas the one of Mataró would contribute him dynamism, quality and vision of game.
