If Barça passed, Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann could miss the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals in the case of seeing a yellow one in the round of eighths. Both players are alert and in serious danger

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Naples attained to stop almost in dry to the FC Barcelona this past Tuesday in Saint Paolo. The napolitanos shut backwards, covered almost all the gaps and avoided that the culés were comfortable in all the meeting. The ones of Quique Setién only threw once between the three sticks in all the crash and hardly generated danger in put it of the Italians. Only the big pass of Sergio Busquets for the incursion of Nélson Semedo, that finish in the so much of Griezmann, broke the defensive system of the ones of Gattuso.

Precisely the French will have to play with a lot of care in the turn in the Camp Nou, since it saw yellow cardboard in this gone and already adds two in what it goes of Champions League. But the '17' is not the only star that runs danger in the turn, since Leo Messi saw his second cardboard in this League of Champions and also is apercibido. If the Argentinian or the Frenchman saw another caution would lose the gone of quarter-finals if the barcelonistas happened.

The '10' saw yellow card in the minute 66 of the second part after a very hard entrance on Ospina, the goalkeeper of the Naples. Some asked something more, since the rosarino put him the iron in the stomach to the Colombian, but the reality is that it was totally involuntary, since it launched to the floor to try finish. The referee did not forgive the imprudencia to go with the iron by in front and finish admonishing him.

The ex rojiblanco, on the other hand, had to brake a counterattack in the minute 82 and he same looked for the cardboard. Lorenzo Insigne left to the against with danger and the French preferred that they took him out this card to that the Italian could pillar to the Barça descolocado. An agarrón of manual to avoid danger that could go out him very expensive to see another inside three weeks in the Camp Nou.

Two decisive drops for the Barça

The first yellow that saw Messi was in the fifth party of the phase of groups against the Borussia Dortmund. Griezmann, by his part, saw card for the first time in the crash against the Inter of Milan of the Camp Nou. With these last, go two for each one, and both will be apercibidos from now. Although it is odd that see another prompt cardboard by his offensive character, would suit that the two had special care in the turn in front of the Naples.

As it is the Barcelona of effective, lose to the Frenchman and to the of Rosario would be a terrible work. Although with the captain the problem always would be greater, that any one of the two saw yellow would be a problemón important. Without Luis Suárez and without Martin Braithwaite, that only can play LaLiga, only would remain Ansu Fati to play up in the case that both went sanctioned. By this reason, so much the '10' as the '17' will have to avoid run risks whenever have option.

Nélson Semedo Will be the another footballer culé apercibido in the commitment against the napolitanos of the Camp Nou. The Portuguese already was it in Saint Paolo, but managed well and did not see any cardboard. It seems that Sergi Roberto, that now is lesionado, could reappear in the turn, by what, perhaps, Setién can reserve to the luso to avoid that it see his third caution.
