This Saturday, the FC Barcelona faced against the Naples the last escollo to win a note to the final to eight of the Champions League that will contest in Lisbon. And it did it with the drops of Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal in the centre of the field, two fundamental men for Quique Setién that, besides, had been intocables in front of a so leathery opponent like the napolitanos.

This yes, the Cantabrian technician could have a 'signing' of luxury for the centre of the field: the one of Frenkie of Jong. By fault of an injury in the sóleo, the Dutch midfield player lost a big quantity of parties after the resumption of LaLiga Santander, being able to play hardly some minutes in the duels against Osasuna and Sportive Alavés. Against the Naples, returned to the titularity and did it to a big level.

With a vendaje in his left hand that protected him of a tremendo swell by bites of bee, Frenkie of Jong jumped to the terrain of game accompanied of Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto in the centre of the field. The Dutch knew that it had to be the compass, the man that controlled the tempi of the team in the medullary to fault of Sergio Busquets, and his level did not disappoint in spite of the long period of inactivity.

Removing to Leo Messi, that went the big protagonist of party, is not exaggerated to say that Frenkie of Jong was the best player of the FC Barcelona. The crack of Arkel played a very correct party, in which it did not hide and in which it always knew to take the most adapted decisions according to the situation. It did not weigh him for nothing the have to assume the leadership, neither neither the fact to be an eliminatory of Champions League: always it chose well.

Maybe we are speaking of one of the best parties of Frenkie of Jong with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona, in spite of that the culés were very grey in some phases. The Dutch accelerated the game when it had to do it and gave pause when his team needed it. Besides, it gave an assistance of goal to Leo Messi although, incomprensiblemente, the VAR invalidated the action by some supposed hands.

In front of the Bayern, will go back the 'trident' of the medullary

Of face to the party against the Bayern of Munich, Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal will be available. If Frenkie of Jong keeps the level, the FC Barcelona can have a mejoría important in front of the Bavarians. It is necessary to take into account also that the presence of the Catalan and the one of the Chilean will free of responsibilities to the Dutch and will allow changes during the second time to keep the freshness of in the medullary.
