The FC Barcelona is in luck. It has of a couple of midfield players, Frenkie of Jong (22 years) and Arthur Melo (23 years) that this season 2019-20 have begun to coincide, but of face to the future can turn into the compasses of the team during the next decade. Both starred a partidazo this Saturday against the Valency in the Camp Nou (5-2), the one of Arkel marking a good goal and the Brazilian dominating all the facets of the game.

They distributed with criterion, generated fluidity between lines and approached to the rival area filtering passes and shooting from second line. Also they cut many of the intentonas of contragolpe of Valencia and knew always where plant to recover the possession. They are very young, but seems that they carry all a life playing in the Barça, and from now the only that will do fault is that they are more regular.

Arthur and Of Jong contribute freshness in the transitions, and work together in a line in which for now they do not have place Ivan Rakitic neither Arturo Vidal -although both had minutes in the second time- neither neither Sergi Roberto, after having split to title in the previous days. Dutch and Brazilian form a couple on which build the foundations of a team champion, two players with 'DNA' Barça without having grown in The Farm.

With Busquets in the defensive pivote, neither Carles Aleñá has place still in the diagrams of Valverde and, of face to the next years, the one who himself could have prominence like the third piece of the centre of the field culé is the canterano Riqui Puig, the one who follows marvelling in the Barça B waiting for that Ernesto Valverde give him more opportunities in the first team.

Busquets-Arthur-Of Jong, a midfield 'DNA Barça'

For now, and seen the seen this Saturday in the Camp Nou, while the physicist respect them Arthur and Of Jong have to have the titularity ensured in the important parties. Also Sergio Busquets if it attains to recover the regularity of antaño, although it chains some parties surrendering to a good level of game in comparison to the disastrous past season.

Rakitic, Vidal, Sergi Roberto and Aleñá will have it complicated this season to have minutes in the important parties, although yes they will have them in the rest of meetings. Shelving the injuries, that sure will affect to the centre of the field sometime of the course, the dilated calendar that has by in front the team culé will force to Valverde to do rotations. And there is not doubt that it has of a bench of luxury to do it.
