During the last seasons, the FC Barcelona has had problems of effective in defence. Players like Thomas Vermaelen or Samuel Umtiti have suffered grave injuries that have left just of effective to the Barcelona defence, by what has had to improvise. Signings of half class like Jeison Murillo, experiments reconverting players... They are measures that have taken and that have not worked.

The sportive direction has taken note of it sucedido during this time and, of face to the next campaign, has reinforced the defence to consciousness, bending each one of the positions with players of level that will have to litigate to do with the place. The signings will have an important paper in the saga of which will have Ernesto Valverde.

Right sides

This will be the third season of Nélson Semedo and expects that it was the one of his consecration. The Portuguese is a carrilero that contributes a lot in attack but that has a speed and some physical conditions that allow him replegar with efficiency. This season, his companion will be Moussa Wagué, recently risen from the filial, of the that expects that it compete with the luso. The joker Sergi Roberto -that now explains like midfield player- would be the third option.

Right head offices

Gerard Piqué made one of the best seasons of his career and expects that it go back to be indisputable in the place of right-handed head office. The Catalan has leadership, quality and is a solid defence, by what expects that it was a key piece in the saga. In this place, will accompany him the youngster Jean-Clair Todibo, a player that is surprising by his good level in the pre-season. To his 19 years, has physical, technical and projection.

Left head offices

Maybe, the most fierce competition in the eleven of gala of the FC Barcelona was in this position. Clément Lenglet was the couple of Piqué the past season, but Samuel Umtiti, after recovering of his injury of knee, wants to recover a place in which it was indisputable seasons backwards. Fierce competition of two French compatriots that have showed to be to the height of the club.

Left sides

It has been the greater correction of the FC Barcelona in the market of signings. The past campaign, already without Lucas Digne in the team, Jordi Alba was the only natural option for the left side. The Catalan did not have competition, neither pressure neither rest, by what his performance finish being intermittent in spite of consecrating like the best left-handed side of the world. Junior Firpo, last signing culé that showed his big level in the Betis, arrives to compete with the one of L'Hospitalet.
