Sergio Busquets, who was a substitute and did not play a single minute against Athletic, will return to the line up against Real Betis. The midfielder will lead the midfield culé against the Betis in a game that is presupposed key
Ernesto Valverde surprised to all the world the past Friday when taking out a centre of the totally revolutionary field. The trainer barcelonista took out to Frenkie of Jong of mediocentro defensive, with Carles Aleñá and Sergi Roberto of interiors. Surprisingly, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic were acting.
The Croat went out in the rest by Aleñá, but the one of Badia did not play neither an alone minute in Saint Mamés. The experiment did not go out him at all well to the 'Txingurri' and is therefore by what seems that against the Betis will go back to put a more balanced midfield. Busquets aims to the titularity beside Rakitic and is for seeing if the companion of both will be Of Jong, Arthur or Roberto.
The international Spanish will lead the centre of the field as of habit in front of a Betis that will look for to steal him the balloon to the Barça. Precisely therefore it could be so important put to the Catalan in front of the verdiblancos. If Of Jong plays to his side will download him of responsibility to defend and in the construction, something that can come him very well.
Busquets carries a pair of years showing be very underneath of his physicist of always and the Dutch could be key to see again his best version. The ex of the Ajax, in addition to touching the balloon very well, is very dynamic, covers a lot of field and happens the party running. This could be decisive for the one of Badia, that could centre more in the work with balloon.
Doubts in the line of attack
With the injuries of Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé, there are a lot of doubts on who will play up against the Betis. Leo Messi is recovered and will go in in the list, but does not seem that Valverde go to risk to put him to title. On the other hand, Rafinha, that would be to title if it was to 100%, suffers a gastroenteritis and is doubt.
This does that Carles Pérez can begin in the eleven beside Griezmann, that will be the leader of the forward. Another option would be that the Barcelona trainer changed of training and put more people in half to counter the fault of effective up. This could give him the opportunity to play again to Carles Aleñá, that of the means culés is probably the one who better could adapt to positions more advanced.
