The FC Barcelona decided to schedule the season with four head offices in staff: Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti and Jean-Clair Todibo. The Catalan and Lenglet are the indisputable headlines of Ernesto Valverde from the past season and, for the moment, have played it everything in this start of course.

The canterano and the ex sevillista have contested the 90 minutes in the five parties that has played the Barça and have not rested still. This is a problem for the team, since it is dangerous to load them of minutes so prompt with a so long and important campaign by in front. In other circumstances, Umtiti could have had already some minute, but the ex of the Lyon lesionó in the stop of selections with France.

Samuel, that did not play neither an alone minute in the first three bump suspender belts, will be of drop a month and already has lost the meetings in front of Valencia and Borussia Dortmund. With the load of parties that there are these next weeks, in Granada would be to title with total security, but without him, is not clear if I Hammered or Lenglet will be able to have rest this weekend.

Todibo Is the alternative that has Valverde to reserve to one of his two defenders titled. The jovencísimo French alone has played two official crashes with the elastic Barcelona. It was to title in front of the Huesca and the Celtic the past year when the League already was won. In front of the oscenses left good details and surrendered well, but against the Galicians left a lot of doubts that seems that they still have not dissipated .

Todibo Leaves doubts

The ex of the Toulouse is still quite green and seems that the 'Txingurri' does not finish of fiarse of him. In Granada, after playing against the Dortmund this Tuesday, could be a good moment so that Lenglet rested. The international absolute with France played the two parties to the complete with his country in the stop and also completed the crashes against Valencia and Borussia. The left-handed defender needs rest, but is not of the all clear if the trainer extremeño goes it to him to concede.

It is necessary to remember that Jordi Alba is lesionado and Junior Firpo will debut in Granada. Take out to Todibo and to the Hispanic-dominican together does not seem the best idea, taking into account the defensive problems that are having the barcelonistas in this beginning of campaign. Any has debuted still this course, both are young and could be risked that they coincide. What is clear, leaving to a side the commitment in front of the grenadian, is that the Barça has a problem in the centre of his saga that Valverde will have to solve.
