The FC Barcelona is desconectando some days to go back with more strength to the fight by the Champions League. After the disappointments in the Supercopa of Spain, the Glass of Rey and LaLiga, the Catalans will treat to conquer Europe before doing borrón and new account in the window estival, and in his head already is the decisive meeting of 8 August. In spite of the light advantage, all know that against the Napoli plays a final.

Quique Setién does not go it to have easy to make an eleven of guarantees, since has several important drops confirmed. In the visit to Saint Paolo fell Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal, that will not be able to participate in the turn of eighth of final when being sanctioned, and besides already knew that the lesionado Ousmane Dembélé will not arrive to time for the international commitments and that Martin Braithwaite is not inscribed.

Fortunately, the technician has found with several 'signings' in the last weeks that could facilitate his work. Obviously, it does not treat of incorporations like such, but yes of footballers that could go in in the alignment or offer answers to the incógnitas of the Barcelona. Anybody in the Camp Nou expects a simple clash against the Italians, but this does not mean that motivation and confidence are not to the maximum.

In the medullary, the Cantabrian recovers to Frenkie of Jong and has good news with Sergi Roberto and Riqui Puig. After several weeks in the dry dam, the one of Arkel took rhythm in the last parties of LaLiga and expects to be in full conditions in August. In spite of that it still has not arrived to his beak of performance, is clear that it is indispensable. Equally, the one of Reus has shined again acting like interior, and the one of Matadepera has stepped advance when more needs him . With the help of Ivan Rakitic, this plot would not have to be a headache.

In the forward, Ansu Fati has relanzado, and could be an alternative in function of the state of Antoine Griezmann. The one of Macon remained out of fight by a muscular mishap, but is working in solitary and the doctors have predicted that will have green light to measure to the partenopeos. In any case, with Leo Messi and Luis Suárez like indisputable, the canterano has given the size in his last apparitions and could give freshness to the 4-3-3, in which, as already it has mentioned , there are not more available pure forwards.

Finally, and explaining that the Frenchman is more fixed that novelty, the last solution would be the one of Ronald Araújo, that has consolidated his promotion giving rest to Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet. Samuel Umtiti would have to be the bodyguard of the two central headlines, but his physical fragility is an evident danger. The last performances of the Uruguayan have left calmer to fans and experts, that know that the one of Rivera will be prepared if they need him after a temporary return to the filial, that is litigating by the promotion to Second Division.

The Barça trusts the Camp Nou

In spite of that the tropiezos recent have given him a touch of attention, the Barça trusts the fortress of the Camp Nou for the Champions. It is true that the absence of public weakens the factor field, but also is it that the 1-1 of Saint Paulo offers a light advantage that it is necessary to take advantage of. First it is necessary to do the duties in front of the Italians, and afterwards think in the final stages of Lisbon and in the Bayern of Munich.
