Calendar of FC Barcelona

Quique Setién decided to put in the Classical an eleven very seemed to the that put in front of the Naples in the gone of the eighth of final of the Champions League. Jordi Alba, recovered for the cause just in time, went in by Junior Firpo, whereas in the centre of the field played Arthur Melo by Ivan Rakitic. The rest were the same that in Saint Paolo, but equal that sucedió in Italy with the napolitanos, the Madrid also went out with life in front of them.

In fact, the whites won by 2-0 and recovered the leadership of LaLiga. It was a meeting of contrasts in which the Barcelona dominated in the first part, but saw quite surpassed in the second. The so high pressure posed by Zinedine Zidane surtió effect and the Barça lost a lot of balls going out from backwards. The Catalans were bottled in his own field and Setién decided to change the system putting to Martin Braithwaite.

The Danish went in by Arturo Vidal, that was to title once again and also once again went to the bench with face of few friends. The Chilean, that was not playing badly, left of the field contrariado and denying with the head the change of his trainer in the minute 69 of the second time.

If Vidal had been in the field, perhaps the Brazilian forward had not received so comfortable as it did it with the labeling of Braithwaite, that followed with its eyes him. The Chilean saw this played from the bench, more calmed after the get angry that had after the replacement. Already it does some weeks, the one of Saint Joaquín bothered after jumping to the field in the minute 85 against the Getafe in the Camp Nou. With Valverde also starred several episodes of this style and the normal is that it go back to suceder in the future.

In the Camp Nou never has had this role of titularísimo and always has asked more. He wants to be key and would like him play it all, but in the Barça this is not possible.
