After the failure of Anfield in front of the Liverpool, to the Barcelona still remains him the Glass of the King to try attain another doublet of League and Glass. It would be the consecutive second of the Barcelona club, that expects to finish the season with good feelings, in spite of the unforgivable trip in front of the 'reds' in Champions League.

But Ernesto Valverde goes to have to throw of wit to do the forward that play against Valencia. Luis Suárez was operated this past Thursday of a problem in his knee and has said goodbye to the season. The Uruguayan forward will not be in Benito Villamarín on 25 May and the 'Txingurri' will have to look for a solution for this decisive meeting.

The extremeño, that almost has not had Kevin-Prince Boateng, will have to change his idea of usual game if it does not want to put to the ghanés in Seville. It would be the most logical change, since it is the only player of the staff barcelonista that it can adapt to the position of forward, but is not the one who has in the head the ex of the Athletic Club. The Barcelona trainer does not trust Boateng and seems little likely that remain with this option, in spite of the logic.

The most likely, according to Sportive World, is that Valverde decide to put of 'false 9' to Messi in front of the valencianistas. The Argentinian has played here in infinity of occasions along his career and with the 'Txingurri' also has done it in several parties. If Leo finish playing in this place, the most normal is that Coutinho play to his left and Ousmane Dembélé do it to the right, if it is that it attains to recover to time of his injury.

The French is serious doubt for the party and the trainer of the Barcelona already admitted in press conference does some days that is little likely that can play the final copera. With the injury of Suárez, perhaps force and shorten something the terms of recovery, but does not seem the most suitable taking into account the ease with which recae of the injuries the extreme Frenchman. If it did not arrive to time, Malcom would go in in the right in this 4-3-3.

Valverde Could meditar the change of system

If to the extremeño do not convince him these options, even could change his 4-3-3 classical by a 4-4-2 like which used to finish the party of the Camp Nou antre the Liverpool. Sergi Roberto would do of double side with Semedo, whereas in the left could go in Arturo Vidal or even Arthur. Up, the normal is that they played Leo Messi with Coutinho, if it did not recover Dembélé. The Argentinian has played many times here with Suárez, but do it with the '7' would be a novelty. It seems the most unlikely option of all, but would not be necessary descartarla of the everything.
