Calendar of FC Barcelona

Robert Lewandowski will be out of action by the next month after suffering a sprain in his left ankle in the visit of the FC Barcelona to Port wine by the second day of the phase of groups of the Champions League. It is a very sensitive drop and everything seems to indicate to that it will be Ferran Torres the one who fill the gap that will leave the Polish forward in the line of attack of the blaugrana. The confidence in the one of Foios is maximum.

The '7' is the second player that more goals accumulates in this season, by behind Lewandowski. Sum four targets, between LaLiga and Champions, squeezing to the maximum toos the minutes that has given him Xavi Hernández. Sum 354 minutes of action in nine parties, but only has been headline in three opportunities. Against the Granada, this Sunday from the 21:00 hours in The Cármenes, aims to appear in the XI initial by fourth time in what it goes of course.

Ferran, forced to give step at the front

It is the player that more has played as '9', although it is not his favourite position and considers that it is much more effective like right extreme. Already in the Manchester City and the selection of Spain appeared in the centre of the forward and knows what is to manage with solvency in the position, being the maximum reference in the attack, but it will be necessary to see how goes him now. It is the only option that has Xavi.

In what it goes of season, the majority of his goals have arrived playing from the extreme. In fact, only to the target that annotated in front of the Port wine has been splitting as '9' pure. Already the trainer egarense had tested him in this demarcation against the RCD Mallorca, but happened careless and finished abandoning the terrain of game to the hour of the party to give entrance, precisely, to Lewandowski.

Reinforcements from the quarry

It will be necessary to see how goes him to Ferran in the centre of the forward, because a priori it will be the big bet in the weeks to come. It exists the option that Joao Félix also can play as false nine, in addition to the extra reinforcements that have arrived from The Masia, being the case of Pau Víctor and Marc Guiu, those who have colado in the announcement of the Barça to travel Andalucia and confront to the Granada in The Cármenes.
