Carles Aleñá made his debut as a starter this season and did so with a remarkable performance against Dynamo Kiev. The Catalan formed in the double pivot with Pjanic and did not hide at any time, making it clear that he can be useful for Koeman
The one of Kiev was a night of debuts in all the senses. No only they debuted in Champions League Óscar Mingueza, Konrad de la Fuente, Riqui Puig and Matheus Fernandes, also did it, at least like titling in the FC Barcelona this season, Carles Aleñá. The one of Mataró so alone had contested until this date 7 minutes against the own Dynamo of Kiev in the Camp Nou, by what could enjoy at last of the minutes by which has struggled during so many months.
Ronald Koeman had to throw of the less usual against the Russians by the drops and by his own decisions, and thus it had the one of the Maresme. The Catalan, in front of the absence of Sergio Busquets, formed double pivote with Miralem Pjanic and played the 90 minutes of crash. Although it did not go of the most stood out, is just to recognise that it completed a remarkable performance with which claimed to his way.
It did not do big alardes neither left spectacular details, but Aleñá showed against the Dynamo that can be very useful for this Barça. The canterano moved by the left zone of the midfield and did not leave to ask it in the 95 minutes that was on the terrain of game. It knew to hold the ball, went a support for all his mates and hardly lost it. In summary, showed to have a lot of personality, character and win to do it well and follow working in search of more opportunities like the one of this Tuesday.
As to all the team, cost him more offer and generate football in the first part, but still like this left clear that with balloon is a safe. Carles does not be used to to lose the spherical hardly ever and this in a midfield player is something to have very in account. In the second, yes left some interesting pass and the feeling that with patience and parties, can be this big half that aimed to be in the Masia.
Besides, also it showed that it can play and defend in the double pivote, something of what doubted a lot. The own Ronald Koeman recognised does weeks that was working to be able to stand out in this position and in Kiev remained clear that it was truth. Also it is necessary to remember his pass to Jordi Alba in the 0-4 of Antoine Griezmann, showing his quality and vision of game with spaces.
Aleñá, by in front of Riqui Puig for Koeman
It is likely that go back to the bench against Osasuna this Sunday, since it will return Frenkie of Jong and after the crash of Mingueza, everything aims that the central will be against the navarros. Nevertheless, if Busquets is not neither against the 'rojillos', is very possible that go back to have minutes along the meeting. What has remained clear after the 0-4 in front of the Dynamo is that it can trust he and that for Koeman is by in front of Riqui Puig, another of the applicants to the place.
