Calendar of FC Barcelona

This Wednesday, the FC Barcelona will confront to the Ferencváros in the party of the fifth day of the phase of groups of the Champions League. After having won the four previous duels in this competition, the ones of Ronald Koeman already are mathematically classified for the eighth of final, reason by which the Dutch technician has decided to give rest to important players to give the alternative to others less usual.

Like this the things, Leo Messi, Marc-André ter Stegen or Philippe Coutinho remained out of the list of summoned, whereas youngsters like Konrad de la Fuente or Iñaki Crag yes were between which will travel to Hungary. The one who again remained out of the announcement was Samuel Umtiti, that follows training with the group but without generating the sufficient security as to play an official party.

Fact, Ronald Koeman spoke on Samuel Umtiti in the previous press conference to the party against the Ferencváros and explained that the frank-Cameroonian remained in Barcelona to contest a partidillo of training with the filial, directed by Francisco Javier García Pepper. "Umtiti Will play morning with the Barça B", commented the Dutch technician, puntualizando that "is near to go back".

That is to say, that whereas the FC Barcelona will be playing the party of Champions League against the Ferencváros, Samuel Umtiti will be testing with the filial. Maybe, the frank-Cameroonian have this last test before going back to the announcements of the first team, although it can not deny the medical scepticism that generates regarding the fact to be able to have continuity.

The problems that Samuel Umtiti has in his knee aim to be chronic and, from 2018, can not have continuity to be able to play several parties followed. Recurrentemente, has to stop to treat the knee, what does that it do not finish never to have the rhythm of necessary competition to reach his best level. In fact, from the FC Barcelona prioritises before his sale that his turn.

However, to day of today, the FC Barcelona has very few resources in defence and is thus that it has to hold on to all those that can recolectar until it do not open the market of winter. One of them is Samuel Umtiti, a player with experience and that, although it was in dropper, can contribute quality. With Gerard Hammered like lesionado of long length, all help will be little in a defence in which Óscar Mingueza begins to consecrate .
