Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona confronts this Sunday to the RCD Espanyol (21:00 hours, in Spain) in second derbi of Catalonia of the season. The Barcelona are forced to carry the three points to be still in his positive dynamics in LaLiga, try recortar distances with the leadership and give a new hit on the table against the eternal rival of the city. For the occasion, Xavi Hernández will not be able to have all his players.

In addition to the drops known by injury of Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, Memphis Depay, Samuel Umtiti, Alejandro Balde and Clément Lenglet, or the doubt with the presence of Eric García, the trainer egarense will not be able to have two of the stars of the filial: Ez Abde and Ferran Jutglà, those who will reinforce for now to the team directed by Sergi Barjuán.

'SPORT' Explains that, in principle, nor will be with the Barça and Barjuán expects that both play against the Linares this weekend so that the team begin to convince with victories, remembering that the situation of the picture 'B' Barcelona is extremely delicate and that have won only one of his last seven parties in the First Division RFEF. In fact, the filial culé does not know the triumph from the past 12 December, when it won to the Athletic Balearic by 3-1.

Since, they have accumulated three defeats and three ties. The last trip in front of the Algeciras, by 2-1, left to Sergi Barjuan depending on a miracle to save his place like trainer of the team. This Saturday, against the Linares (to the 17:00 hours in Spain), is the proof of fire for the ex player and, if it does not win and convinces, is likely that was destituido of his charge. Of there that it need to his best players for the appointment.

It is thus that Ez Abde and Ferran Jutglà have come working in dynamics of the filial for prepares the important commitment of this weekend. The two, as far as explains 'SPORT' aim to be headlines in the party and Barjuán will have to decide who will be the companion of both in the line of attack. Ilias Akhomach Or Fabio White are the two big options.

Xavi, without problems

Unlike what could have suponido these two drops three weeks ago or a month, now Xavi Hernández has different alternative to configure his alignment, in spite of the drops forced of Ez Abde or Ferrán Jutglà. If it poses the crash against the 'pericos' as it happened against the Athletic of Madrid, the egarense will bet by Adama Traoré, Ferran Torres and Gavi for the forward.

However, there are more options in the bench. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang already contested minutes and is available, as well as Ousmane Dembélé for some band, or Luuk of Jong and Martin Braithwaite for 'argue' the position of 'nine'. The one who if it is doubt for the commitment in the RCDE Stadium is Memphis Depay, the one who still has not received the high medical.
