Calendar of FC Barcelona

Although the FC Barcelona follows having a lot of advantage to confront this Sunday to the Real Madrid in LaLiga, the possible return of Pedri to the eleven headline of Xavi was a news that a lot of culés already celebrated to the enteder that the team would go back to have to his mediocampista more talentoso. Finally the list of summoned for the party has confirmed that the Canarian is not and in this zone of the field surely will appear again Franck Kessié.

With characteristics totally opposite certainly, but with a lot for offering, the marfileño is the main candidate to be like interior from the beginning in front of the ones of Ancelotti. His good performance in the last parties put it in this place, but also the little confidence of Xavi at present in Ferran Tower or Ansu Fati to complete the characteristic 4-3-3 that is used to to use the Barça.

The best and only option for Xavi

With the two attackers losing opportunities in the last commitments, so much of headlines as going in from the bench, Gavi would occupy this zone of the field in a role that in the Supercopa of Spain consecrated him like the best of the final in front of the merengues. Kessié, by his part, would complete the half of the field beside Busquets and Frenkie of Jong.

Another point for for the ex footballer Milan is the absence of another name of weight to be able to contest him the place, since only Sergi Roberto or Pablo Tower are the others mediocampistas available of the first team. Thus, and after the success of Kessié in the duel of the Glass of the King in the Bernabéu, his actions have shot to assume the titularity in front of the Madrid.

A positive antecedent in Classical

In that victory by 0-1 of the team of Xavi, Kessié finished causing directly the goal in own of Militao, and was about to to convert the second so much, but an unlucky apparition of Ansu deprived him of his 'doublet'. Besides, as well it highlights his profile, was able to have presence in both areas and when it had to lucirse with his physicist and aerial game like this did it.

The more than likely titularity of young and dynamic players like Tchouameni and Camavinga do that the technical body culé have to have very very covered to Busquets and avoid that Benzema play comfortably to his back. This work go in Of Jong and the African player already was solved very well in the second time in front of the merengues, especially understanding that the ones of Ancelotti will be forced to attack to carry the triumph of the Camp Nou.
