The stop of selections forced to Xavi Hernández to restructure his eleven to visit to the Mallorca. With Frenkie of Jong lesionado, the technician egarense bet again by Franck Kessié to give rest to Pedri previous to the crash of the Tuesday in Italy in front of the Inter of Milan, but the marfileño gave the impression of desaprovechar a new opportunity to consolidate in the eleven blaugrana.

In Sound Moix, Xavi knew that the physicist of the of Ouragahio would be a great help to impose conditions in a party with a lot of friction in the half. Sergio Busquets and Gavi commissioned of the recovery and creation, leaving in Kessié the 'dirty work'. The player of 25 years, always impetuous and had to presionar high to add to the attack, began well the party, cutting the circuits of the venues to avoid that Iñigo Ruiz and Iddrisu Dribble connected with his forwards.

However, a yellow to the edge of the rest conditioned his performance in the second part. Kessié Was admonished by a fault on Pablo Maffeo to cut a contragolpe that antojaba dangerous. Although it was a yellow very won, the fear to a possible expulsion did that the marfileño participated little in the complement. Finally, Xavi replaced him in the 67' by Pedri, when the Barça began to suffer his fault of ideas to sustain the minimum advantage.

Franck came of a bad first part in front of the Elche before the stop of selections and gave the impression of desaprovechar a new opportunity. This day, the ex player of the AC Milan brushed the expulsion with a pair of strong infringements that were forgiven by the main judge. Thus, it was replaced in the halftime leaving his place in the field to Gavi, the one who had rested after the defeat in Munich in front of the Bayern.

The doubt of Gavi could give back to Kessié to the eleven the Tuesday

The Spanish played complete the Saturday, but withdrew with annoyances of the stadium, by which his presence in the eleven in front of the Inter is not ensured. With Of Jong still lesionado, Xavi could bet again by Kessié in front of the Inter, a team that knows very well after his go through the Series To. In his defect, the technician egarense would bet by Sergi Roberto like carrilero and a line of three deep down, an alternative that, to these heights, seems less viable for the visit to the Giusseppe Meazza.
