Tickets for FC Barcelona matches

The trainer of the FC Barcelona, Ronald Koeman, has used the parties of pre-season (if like this it can him call) of these last weeks to film physically to his players and, besides, to go outlining little by little the one who has to be the eleven headline of the Barcelona team. Three meetings against rivals of minor to greater category as they are Nástic, Girona and Elche, but that have not served to clear a lot of incógnitas that follow valid.

And it is that Koeman has prioritised to do play to all the players with which explains in the staff of the first team, and from here that still do not hit to know who will form the alignment type of the FC Barcelona in the important parties of the next season, taking into account besides that players like Pjanic or Todibo hardly have been able to train still beside the rest of his mates, and that Luis Suárez does not know still if it will leave or will remain .

There are appearances to resolve like the dilemma of the right side, the preparation of the centre of the field, the position of mediapunta or the paper of young talents like Pedri, Trincao and Ansu Fati. To continuation detail some of these questions, all they of big interest for the barcelonismo:

Sergi Roberto, Semedo or another? The dilemma of the right-handed side

It can that, a season more and in spite of all the criticisms and speculations, Sergi Roberto was again the right side headline of the FC Barcelona. A footballer reconverted for said place, that fulfils in attack but does not give the size in defence in front of teams and players of big entity. The bad is that, for now, the Barça does not have a lot of more options. It seems that Nélson Semedo can go traspasado, and still desconoce if the Barça will tighten in the market of signings to bring to Sergiño Dest or to another aim. The dilemma of the right-handed side follows without resolving .

The couple of the double pivote

To day of today, Frenkie of Jong and Miralem Pjanic are those who more numbers have to form the double pivote title of the FC Barcelona to half and long term. In the short term it could begin Busquets like companion of Of Jong, taking into account that it does very little that the bosnio has begun to train beside the rest of his mates and, in addition to having to recover the rhythm of competition, still is not adapted to the discipline culé. Carles Aleñá and Riqui Puig are other options to take into account, although no in the eleven headline.

The Barça will have mediapunta... But who?

The most likely is that the names in said position go rotando, even during the parties. Leo Messi, Pedri, Griezmann and Coutinho are those who more qualities have to exert this role, whereas Dembélé, Trincao and Ansu Fati will remain in the bands. The Barça could play even with two mediapuntas in punctual moments, as long as the 'false nine' (usually Messi or Griezmann) delay his position more than the account. There will be a 'nine' pure to fix to the central.

The society Messi-Griezmann needs a push

Messi and Griezmann will be two indisputable headlines in this Barcelona, and possibly go alternating his positions during the parties for despistar to the defenders and endow of mobility at the head of attack. It is an incógnita, still, if Ronald Koeman will find the way to do that they understand to the one hundred by one hundred and that look for mutually, something that has sucedido from does years with Messi and Suárez... And that it can that we do not see again.

In which degree will have fit the youngsters?

The paper of Ansu Fati, Francisco Trincao, Pedri, Riqui Puig or Araújo has to be important, and in addition to progressive way along the season. Ronald Koeman has of a lot of talent in the staff, and of youngsters with the capacity to give back the intensity that to the team has been missing him lately. It will know to manage it the Dutch without 'burn' to any of his young talents? It will touch to be brave and bet by them... No only in the easy moments.
