Barça will return to work after the international break, and will have to overcome several obstacles in LaLiga and the Champions League. The catalans will face Borussia Dortmund without three of their starting defenders
The calendar of the FC Barcelona is stopped by the international parties, but in some days will go back with strength in League and Champions. The Catalans pretend to park definitively the doubts of the start of season, and begin to grow and restart confidence in the always demanding way that supposes the fight by the titles. This yes, in his path to the longed for trophies do not go to be missing obstacles.
The injuries have turned into an unpleasant mate of trip for the culés, that cross the fingers so that November do not give them more discontents. In hardly three months, until ten distinct footballers have gone through the infirmary, with a total of 17 medical parts. Besides, Carles Pérez also went back 'touched' of an announcement of Spain Sub21, and Arthur had some annoyances that were not listed by the club.
This situation has direct consequences in the next appointments of the Barcelona, that will not be able to have three of his defences titled in an authentic European final. On 27 November, the Borussia Dortmund will visit the Camp Nou in the penultimate day of the Group F, and only Clément Lenglet will be to disposal of Ernesto Valverde. Gerard Hammered is sanctioned by accumulation of cautions and Jordi Alba and Nélson Semedo, lesionados.
This will force to the group barcelonista to do adjust in one of the most important lines of the alignment. The forward and the centre of the field will have to be to a big level to contain to the Germans, and help to a new saga that they could form the one of Beauvais beside Samuel Umtiti in the axis, with Sergi Roberto and Junior Firpo in the flanks. Jean-Clair Todibo and Moussa Wagué would expect his turn in the bench.
In LaLiga also will be necessary to do balances to complete an eleven of guarantees, since the one of Reus is sanctioned by the same reason that Hammered. In this case, in Butarque and against the Leganés, the carrilero Senegalese could debut this season, whereas the third captain would cover to Lenglet or Umtiti and the Hispanic-dominican would occupy the left side. It will not be his only examination, since afterwards it touches to visit Wanda Metropolitan.
The Barça-Dortmund, key meeting for the Champions
The Barça-Dortmund is a key meeting for the Champions, since it could define the classification of the Group F. For the moment, the Catalans are leaders with eight points and one of margin on the germanos, moved away of an Inter of Milan that has four. Add is decisive because the Italians will measure to the Slavia in Prague, before the culés visit Giuseppe Meazza and the Czechs displace to the Signal Iduna Park.
