The FC Barcelona bet by an eleven of the most powerful to confront to the Seville in the Supercopa of Spain, although as it was to expect, there were some surprises. The bet by usual headlines, players more in shape and reinforcements veraniegos kept , but between the most stood out absences was the one of Malcom, that not even arrived to go in in the announcement.

The astonishment apoderó of the culés minutes before the start of the clash, when seeing that one of the best players of the pre-season was in the terracing and did not arrive neither to appear by the bench. From his signing, the Brazilian has had several opportunities, and has answered with good football and goals during turns it American. Like this, it was difficult to understand his drop.

After a brief reflection, the suspicion began to aim to the Seville, that hours before the final loomed to the Catalans by the conflict on the non-EU players. According to the group hispalense, the Real Spanish Federation of Football contradicted his own norms when it confirmed that there were not restrictions in in this sense, in what they considered a favouritism to the Barcelona.

"The Seville FC is surprised by the communiqué of the RFEF to 24h of the Supercopa. It affirms that they will be able to inscribe all the non-EU that want , in spite of that in his last circulate for the season 18/19 remained clear that only could be 3 without exception according to competition. The juridical department of the club is studying this subject and if the FC Barcelona ranged to more than 3 non-EU players, would present the timely claim by possible undue alignment".

With Arthur in the eleven initial and Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal in the bench, the solution of the Barça could go through avoid risks, what would have left out of fight to Malcom. In this discussion also went in Marlon Santos, but in his case there were not so many doubts because all indicates that it will leave yielded in the weeks to come, when being covered the square of head office and have too many obstacles with the passports.

The Barça will not have problems in LaLiga with the non-EU

One of the complaints of the Seville is that the temporary permission that LaLiga conceded to Coutinho would not be valid for the Supercopa, although the carioca has completed the formalities to nationalise Portuguese and only expects the 'ok' to obtain his passport. Like this, it is to expect that in a week, when it start the championship of the regularity, the ex the Liverpool do not have problems to explain as community, what would give back to Malcom his opportunities if Ernesto Valverde considers it necessary.
