Although it is true that the FC Barcelona is not having luck this season with the injuries, equally true is that his last decisions have mermado even more the possibilities of Quique Setién to the hour of preparations his alignments. Bad luck and bad planning, a duet that could command to the fret the options to struggle this course by titles truly important and longed for by the fans, as they are the Champions and LaLiga.

No in vain the Barcelona has so only, in the actuality, of 16 healthy players in the first staff. Net Walled foresees that it go back to be included very soon in the announcements, whereas Ter Stegen follows surrendering to big level after having received a skilled treatment at the beginning of January. In defence, the sides keep without damages (Semedo-Sergi Roberto by the right and Alba-Junior by the left), whereas so only remain three head offices in the first team: Umtiti, Hammered and Lenglet.

The centre of the field is the better zone cover, with until five effective of level and experience as they are Rakitic, Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Arthur and Of Jong. Where more problems there is is in the front of attack, covered only by Griezmann and Leo Messi, without explaining to an Ansu Fati that, although it is installed of permanent way in the dynamics of the team from does months, could not consider to 100% component of the first staff.

16 healthy players, then , more the extra of Ansu Fati and without explaining that they can help from the Barça B players like Ronald Araujo, Riqui Puig, Hill, Iñaki Crag or Rey Manaj, recently fichado this winter. They are lesionados Dembélé and Luis Suárez, whereas this winter the Barça gave off of Carles Aleñá, Carles Pérez, Jean-Clair Todibo, Moussa Wagué and Abel Ruiz, the one who also could have been a good option of 'covered' for the forward.

The Barça preferred to make money before that save the backs

And now, after the injury of Dembélé of long length -that could warn given his record-, to the Barcelona will touch him look for to a new forward in the Spanish market that it could go out him expensive, to the knows the rest of clubs the imperiosa need culé. This attacker could have been Carles Pérez or Abel Ruiz, as we have said, but the Barcelona preferred to make money with his exits before that save the backs.

As everything in the life, the football also are decisions and the FC Barcelona is paying expensive some of the last that has taken. They do not help the 'internal wars' between Abidal and Messi, the controversies of deal little professional with players like Bakambú or the fact that it arrive a new trainer and the staff have to readaptarse to half of season, in full fight by the titles. The criticisms arrive from everywhere, and is logical. Now it touches to push.
