Gerard Piqué gave the scare this past Tuesday in Naples-Barça when he retired injured from his ankle. However, this Friday he has trained normally and may be in the Classic
Gerard Piqué gave a good fright this past Tuesday in the final stretch of the Naples-FC Barcelona. The central Catalan jumped to clear a balloon of head and when falling could see as it twisted the ankle for stepping badly. The defender tried to continue, but Quique Setién preferred to take out to Clément Lenglet not to risk. To few days of the Classical against the Real Madrid, his presence in Santiago Bernabéu was an incógnita that has cleared this Friday.
In the last session matinal, Hammered has trained with total normality, having surpassed the annoyances in his ankle and ensuring his presence in the duel against the eternal rival. A big news for Setién, that has a staff of very few effective of which will not be able to explain in four of them of face to the crash of this Sunday.
The Catalan defence is an entirely indisputable player in the axis of the defence and his drop had been a true quebradero of head for the trainer santanderino. I hammered it has played it practically everything in the present season and his presence in the important parties is something that already takes for granted, although it is not so clear who goes him to accompany in front of the Real Madrid.
Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti pose one of the main incógnitas of Setién of face to the eleven initial of Santiago Bernabéu. With Ernesto Valverde, the ex sevillista was practically indisputable in the alignments but, after the change of trainer, the frank-Cameroonian has recovered leadership and even has won him the game in more than an occasion to his compatriot.
In important parties like the ones of Mestalla against Valencia, home against the Getafe or, the most recent, in Saint Paolo against the Naples, Umtiti was to title. Nevertheless, Lenglet still surpasses to his mate in the number of titularities since Setién trains to the Barça (six of Clément by the four of 'Big Sam'), something that offers a doubt more than reasonable of face to the Sunday.
Junior Firpo and Nélson Semedo, in the sides
In spite of that Jordi Alba have made part of the session of training of this Friday with the rest of the group, will not arrive to time to play against the Real Madrid and his place will go back it to ocuper the discussed Junior Firpo. In the right side, Sergi Roberto follows lesionado, by what Nélson Semedo will go back to be the owner of the right lane of the Barcelona saga.
