Junior Firpo was decisive in the victory of the FC Barcelona against the Getafe when being the author of the assistance for the goal of Sergi Roberto. The left side had to go in to the terrain of game by the miserable injury of Jordi Alba, that felt serious annoyances in the abductor of his right leg and at the end had to withdraw. The Hispanic-dominican took advantage of well his minutes and showed with danger to the rival area in several occasions.

The ex of the Betis has now, therefore, the mission to substitute to Alba until the one of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat recover . Still it does not know the exact scope of the injury, but everything aims that they will be some three weeks what will lose the Catalan. Junior has an only opportunity by in front to claim and show that it is qualified to be headline in the Barça.

Besides, the international Sub-21 Spanish probably have to play two of the most important commitments that has had the Barcelona until the moment in this campaign. It is impossible that Alba can be in the gone of the eighth of final of Champions League and neither will dress of short against the Real Madrid in the Classical. The Barcelona play a part of the pass to chambers in Naples and LaLiga goes through Santiago Bernabéu.

Junior will have occasion to heat engines for these two parties against the Eibar the weekend that comes. Setién Will throw of him in front of the Eibar to put him in dynamics, since lately the titularísimo had been Jordi Alba. Against the Getafe already had time to show his cost and contested 68 minutes. The true is that had a remarkable performance in many respects, since it did not happen too many difficulties in defence and ofensivamente starred several very positive actions, as the one of the goal of Roberto.

This assistance for the target of the of Reus was the first that gives since it is in the Barça. Up to now, the feeling with Firpo was that it did not finish of soltarse when had the balloon, but against the azulones seemed to leave good part of this fear backwards. His career in the so much of Sergi was remarkable, but no as much as another that did with a combination with Ansu Fati in which it surpassed by speed to his pair and put a balloon of goal that Griezmann wasted.

Setién, able to take out the best of Junior

Quique Setién knows very well to the Hispanic-dominican of his stage in the Betis and probably was the ideal trainer to take out the best of him in the Camp Nou. The Cantabrian was the one who gave him the alternative in Benito Villamarín and will be very interesting to see what does with him in Can Barça. If Junior finishes to give the step at the front that it asks him , the misfortune of the injury of Jordi Alba could not finishing being the abysmal news that apparently is.
