FC Barcelona arrives in pictures, defensively speaking, to the game against Cádiz this Monday before the losses of Gerard Piqué and Ronald Araújo. Clément Lenglet could have his chance
Xavi Hernández does not have doubts with what want to and what no in the FC Barcelona. From his arrival, in November of the past year, has gone making his staff around the needs of the team and has been more than clear regarding the players in which it trusts for 'help it' in his mission to recover the best version of the Barcelona team. Also it has been it with the footballers with which does not explain.
The egarense has 'happened' of several culés in this course, being the case in concrete of Riqui Puig, Net Walled, Clément Lenglet, Òscar Mingueza, Alejandro Balde or Samuel Umtiti, all in different conditions but with a same 'nickname' in the Barça: A player 'sentenced'. In the case of Lenglet, is one of the more 'prejudiced', but could be to the doors of a new and big opportunity.
With the arrival of Eric García during the past summer, the central French has remained totally relegado to the Barcelona bench. With Ronald Koeman was used to to have more minutes and went in in rotation, but from the arrival of Xavi to the benches his participation has been minimum and could be his final sentence with the team of the City Condal, although has agreement until the summer of 2026.
His last performances have not helped him so that Xavi 'see' something distinct in him. Against the Raise, just after going in to the field committed a penal (the third against of the Barça) after a fault 'childish' on Dani Gómez. Against the Eintracht, in the gone in Germany, neither was hit and the egarense did not have he in the turn.
Lenglet Will take advantage of of the drops
The reality is that the level of players like Gerard Hammered, Ronald Araújo and Eric García has kept in the more high at all times, reason by which Xavi has the three of unconditional way. They are the three, in fact, those who have gone rotando between himself. Nevertheless, against the Cádiz the one of Terrassa will be 'forced' to use it.
Gerard Hammered is doubt by a tendinopatía of the aductor long of the left thigh that suffered does more than two weeks and that forced him to remain out of the party against the Eintracht in the Camp Nou, whereas Araújo will not be because it will fulfil cycle of cards after seeing his fifth yellow in front of the Raise.
