The injuries of Piqué and Sergi Roberto will force Koeman to make urgent decisions. One of them, until Busquets and Araújo recover, it seems that it will lower De Jong to the defense, which will force Carles Aleñá or Riqui Puig to be used in the middle
The inopportune lesiones of Gerard Hammered and of Sergi Roberto will force to Ronald Koeman to throw of inventiveness and reposition all his eleven initial. In normal conditions, the Dutch would have to put only to Sergiño Dest by the one of Reus and to Ronald Araújo by the central, but the Uruguayan is lesionado and therefore it will be necessary to do experiments and give opportunities to several players that are not having minutes.
In this situation and until the Uruguayan defender recover , something that could occur in a week roughly, the normal is that the trainer decide to go down to the defence to Frenkie of Jong. The Dutch, the same that sucedió in front of the Dynami of Kiev, the Alavés or in the second part in front of the Athletic of Madrid, will put of head office at the side of Clément Lenglet until Araújo or even Samuel Umtiti can play.
With the change of position of the of Arkel, as it already did this Saturday, Koeman would put of mediocentro to Sergi Roberto if Sergio Busquets is not. The problem is that the '20' will be 'KO' two months, by what if the one of Badia is lesionado, only remain two options in the staff that can play in the double pivote. These alternative are Carles Aleñá and Riqui Puig, that up to now hardly has had minutes.
While Busquets and Araújo are of drop, one of the two will have to occupy a place in the midfield at the side of Miralem Pjanic. The technician of Zaandam will not have more remedy that put to any one of the two canteranos, since there are not more available options. By all this, if there are not novelties for this Tuesday, or Riqui or Carles will be in the eleven conta the Dynamo of Kiev in Champions League.
It will be a big opportunity for any one of them, that carry all the season working to have minutes. For now, the impression that gives is that Koeman trusts something more in Aleñá, as they showed his words of does a pair of weeks. "With Aleñá spoke on his future here, the same that with Riqui. I have seen to Aleñá with many win in the trainings, with win to improve like pivote. If somebody deserves minutes in the entrenos give it to him, always is in hands of the players", said the past 6 November.
Koeman Will have to throw of the less usual
The one of Mataró has played only 7 minutes more discount against the Dynamo, whereas the one of Matadepera contested 2 in front of the Getafe. The míster Dutch does not finish of fiarse of any of them, but now will not remain him more remedy, at least until Busquets go back or Araújo recover and allow that Of Jong go back to the half. All this, clear is, will depend on that the ex seleccionador of Holland decide to go down to Frenkie to the defence in place to have a defender of the filial, a reasonable alternative, but that seems to be less than his like.
