The FC Barcelona wants to park a crisis of game and results that has left him touched, and expects to finish the course struggling by all the titles at stake. The Catalans pretend to continue with his excellent series in LaLiga and remove a spine nailed in the Champions League and the Glass of Rey, that escaped the past season in the last rounds. The planning of the staff, this yes, follows generating doubts.

The Barcelona have one of the most powerful teams of Europe, but in what it goes of campaign already have left see some lacks. The injuries of Leo Messi and Jordi Alba or the sanctions to Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet have caused some headaches to Ernesto Valverde, that has had to do malabarismos to complete announcements and alignments of a group that suffers with these sounded absences.

With permission of the Argentinian, leader and engine of this group, perhaps one of the most indispensable is Luis Suárez, to the one who misses when it is missing even without being able to have his best version. To the usual fight of the Uruguayan with the rivals has added a battle against his age -already has 32 years and this happens bill-, his little rest, the physical problems and the criticisms, since the requirement of the Camp Nou does not do grantings.

In his fight by the Champions, the culés are between the few that do not have a nine acting, with the danger that this comports. The disappointing tie against the Slavia of Prague was the last sample, since the '10' can not do it all, Ousmane Dembélé, Carles Pérez and Ansu Fati are accustomed to move by the bands and Antoine Griezmann, the signing crashes of the summer, does not find his place because neither is leading centre neither neither an extreme to the use. With the one of Jump lesionado, costs to define an attack that remains without his main reference of area.

Between the favourites to conquer the 'orejona' only there is two that are in this same situation, and that they could regret the fact to have to confront to the lightest setback. In the Tottenham, Harry Kane is the only specialist, of the same form that in the Borussia Dortmund depend on Paco Alcácer, whose drop already has ocasionado numerous problems in the agitated conflict by the Bundesliga.

Instead, the majority has alternatives of elder or lower level, of which throw hand when the stars are not available. To Karim Benzema covers him the backs Luka Jovic in the Real Madrid; Diego Coast and Álvaro Morata combine in the Athletic; Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuaín associate in the Juventus; Mauro Icardi arrived to the PSG to cover to Edinson Cavani; Divock Origi is the bodyguard of Roberto Firmino in the Liverpool; Sergio Agüero and Gabriel Jesus comandan to the Manchester City; Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi are to disposal of Chelsea; and even Bayern of Munich and Ajax adapt to Serge Gnabry and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for suplir to Robert Lewandowski and Dusan Tadic.

The Barça needs a nine urgently

As it did not find a young footballer, good and affordable, the Barça postponed the research of the heir of Suárez, something that could happen him bill. The urgencies go back to overwhelm in the City Condal because the team resiente a lot when it is not the ex of the Liverpool, and the catalogue already looks with special interest. They will arrive Lautaro Martínez, Erling Haaland, Donyell Malen, Myron Boadu or some perla with a future ilusionante, but in this campaign already could be afternoon. When the charrúa is not, the fans throw to shiver.
