Raphinha Is called to be one of the big proper names of the FC Barcelona in this season. After the exit of Ousmane Dembélé, with destination to the Paris Saint-Germain, turned into the player that had to assume chevrons and responsibilities in the attack. However, conditioned by the expulsion of which was 'victim' in the debut in LaLiga against the Getafe, his role has not remained so clear... Because it already has competition.

The international with Brazil had begun with a lot of impetus in the visit to the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. During the first-half of the meeting, went the only able of desequilibrar to a very enclosed defence 'azulona' and generated the clearest occasions, until it was expelled by an aggression. It cost him two parties out of the announcement and with the consequence that Lamine Yamal began to colarse in the plans of Xavi Hernández.

The disadvantage of Raphinha in the Barça

Against the Osasuna, in the last party before the stop of selections, there were not doubts that it would be the player formed in The Masia the one who went to be headline. It came to give an assistance to Gavi, cause the goal of Lewandowski and carry the 'MVP' in The Ceramics, leaving to Raphinha in a second term and with a quite clear message: it is not indisputable, neither much less, and this year also will have to win a place in the alignment.

The Brazilian knows what is this situation. Until the injury of the past season of Dembélé, to finals of January, had not achieved to be important in the plans of Xavi. The absence of the French caused that it took a lot of more strength in the right-handed band and that turned into the maximum second goleador of the team, only by behind Robert Lewandowski, and the player with more assistances in the team.

To Raphinha will touch him row to contramarea

In this opportunity, his situation will be very similar. If Lamine is still in ascending line, will follow going in in the plans of the club. Already the trainer egarense did reference to that has (and will have) that add regularity to follow developing as footballer. Thus, at least for the moment, Raphinha splits like a second option and will have to be attentive, also, to Ferran Torres that is signing a start of season very positive and that it wants to be headline.
