The FC Barcelona visits to the Real Madrid this Sunday 1 March in Santiago Bernabéu. The Classical of League is already, therefore, just around the corner and Quique Setién already profile the eleven that will go out to the terrain of game to try win to the whites. After the disappointing 1-1 in Naples, the trainer barcelonista is conscious that it needs a good result in the stadium of the eternal rival to improve the feelings of the team.

To try conquer Madrid by enésima time these last years, the Cantabrian could bet mainly by two distinct trainings. The first is the classical 4-3-3 in which, although it can go in also Arturo Vidal by the right, with almost total security would have better fit Ansu Fati. The juvenile was acting in Saint Paolo and by this reason seems that it will play of start in the Bernabéu, although it can not give at all by seated. In this case, the most likely is that it play in the left to try desbordar to a Dani Carvajal that it was the defender merengue that more suffered against the City.

Besides, in this hypothetical 4-3-3, to the Barcelona would suit him have to Antoine Griezmann by the right to cover the rises of Ferland Mendy. The left side of the Madrid is a wall in defence, but in attack also is contributing each day more by his speed and intelligence. The ex rojiblanco could brake him and also would help a lot to Nélson Semedo with Vinicius Jr, that is the big danger of the Madrid for the time being. The Brazilian desborda without stopping and the Portuguese will need that somebody throw him a hand so that it do not do him a broken. Unless it bet by Vidal, as in Naples, there is not anybody better that the '17' to help to his carrilero.

The another option would be to play with a 4-4-2 in which Ansu Fati would not have fit and would go in a midfield player more. With Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong like insurances, Arthur Melo, Ivan Rakitic and Vidal would contest the two remaining squares. The Chilean is the one who better adapts to the place of mediapunta llegador with this training, by what his presence would be almost safe. Setién Would have to choose in this case between the Croat and the Brazilian. The ex of the Seville would give him more stability and work, whereas the international 'canarinho' would contribute more magic in 3/4 of field and better deal with the balloon.

It play with the diagram that play, the santanderino has several doubts in his head. Ansu Or Vidal seems one of the most evident, but also the one of Rakitic or Arthur will change a lot as it develop the meeting. In defence, Gerard Hammered seems that it will arrive to time and will play, by what the only doubt is if to his side will be Samuel Umtiti or Clément Lenglet, that was acting in Naples. To Setién loves him 'Big Sam', although thinking in the rotations the elected could be the ex sevillista.

Setién Poses bet by Braithwaite

'Sportive world' contributes a doubt more, that would be the inclusion or no of Martin Braithwaite. The Danish only carries a week and little in Can Barça, but loves him to Setién and the ex of the Betis would be posing very seriously if bet by him of start. The reason says that the ideal would be to expect to the second part and have Ansu or Vidal, but the good level exhibited by the ex of the Leganés against the Eibar does that his technician have doubts.
