In the midst of the plague of injuries at Barça, Mingueza has 'taken over' the right side and earns a 'hole' in the team
Normal day in the 'office' of Óscar Mingueza. The player of the FC Barcelona continues showing that it is a safe of life when it is in the field and that deserves more minutes in the initial approach of the Barcelona picture. Right now, it has 'benefited' of the big plague of injuries that has the team and that Jordi Alba and Alejandro Balde are in the infirmary; something that has caused that Sergiño Dest pass to play by the left side and that the canterano find his place by the right.
Without being his ideal position, has left clear that it is a player that fulfils every time that is in the field. In front of the Raise, with the Barça full of youngsters of The Masia, achieved to project. And it go that way. Mingueza Was one of the players that more character and precision showed, once again, with very few errors to defensive level and with intentions to improve the offensive of the Barcelona. The player of 22 years, without place to doubts, is asking step and find a gap in the approach of Koeman.
The canterano put a poster of 'closed' by his band, avoiding the incursions of the players of the Raise, but also hit accompanying to his team to the offensive zone, sending centres milimétricos to generate danger by the band. This time, Memphis or Gavi did not achieve to take advantage of them, but yes noticed the presence of the player, something that invites to the illusion in the barcelonismo, because the team has remained almost without effective for the right side.
The Barça has to Sergiño Dest like fixed right side. The international by United States has recovered his best version and is showing a lot of security in the field, but with the injuries has had to happen to play to leg changed by the left. It is fulfilling very well and, in fact, standing out. In front of the Raise gave the pass to Luuk of Jong for the second goal of the Barcelona, signing besides his first assistance of the season.
Nevertheless, further of Dest there is not 'fixed' in this position, because Sergi Roberto has left too many doubts. The one of Reus does not feel comfortable playing by the right (is not his ideal position) and has showed more hit in the centre of the field. This, without place to doubts, opens him the way to Mingueza to add more minutes and titularities in the Barça. The option that in this course was important, is real.
Of 'it turns off fires' to important player
Mingueza Began his recorrrido in the first team, beside Ronald Araújo, in the first stretch of the season 2020-21, when the defence of the Barça remained in pictures in front of the injuries and drops of the central. Both canteranos did with the defensive saga and, to his short age, showed a lot of maturity. Little by little, they were winning a space in the team, that anybody has been able of 'snatch them'. They are the players of the future, but also are being importantísimos in the Barcelona present.
