Riqui Puig has entered the list of summoned Ernesto Valverde for the match against Inter. The midfielder has not yet debuted this course with the elders and could have his first minutes against the interists
Riqui Puig has been one of the three footballers of the filial of the FC Barcelona that has gone in in the list of summoned of Ernesto Valverde for the party against the Inter of Milan. The Catalan midfield player is one of the big jewels of the Masia, but this course still has not had the opportunity to play with the greater. In front of the Inter, the one of Matadepera could debut at last with the Barça this campaign.
The footballer is growing this year in the filial and is being one of the leaders of the team, but, in spite of this, many think that the B remains him small. He same recognised does something more than a month that the Second Division B only is a category in passing and that his aim was to remain here the less possible. The player wants to have more opportunities with the Barça and, if it does not have them, perhaps have to take the decision to go out yielded.
The problem for the canterano is that in the centre of the field of the Barcelona there is 'overbooking' and the competition cuts him the step. Carles Aleñá, that in theory is by in front of him, only has played two parties in what it goes of season. Having this in account, is normal that Riqui still have not had any minute with the greater.
But this could change this Tuesday, since Valverde will do massive rotations in his eleven initial. Everything aims that Frenkie of Jong and Sergio Busquets, two of the pillars of the midfield blaugrana, will not go out of start against the Inter. Aleñá, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic would be the presumable midfield players titled in Giuseppe Meazza. Riqui, if all goes well, could go out in the second time in which it would be his première this course and his première in Champions League.
Valverde Doubts of the participation of Riqui
Nevertheless, it is necessary to take into account that the one of Matadepera played with the Barça B this past Sunday in the tie to 0 against Valencia Mestalla. The mediocampista contested the 90 minutes and the 'Txingurri' already has warned that this could be decisive for his participation against the 'neroazzurro'. "Riqui Comes to play yesterday and it is necessary to have care with these things. All do not go to dress", advanced the extremeño.
The words of the of Viandar of the Edge are worrisome, although no definite. That it have played the Sunday him descarta to play of start, but no to have 15-20 minutes in the second part. In a crash in which the culés do not play at all, would seem odd that Valverde did not take advantage of it to give him minutes to the jewel, that has many win to get dressed of short with the first team and contest his first minutes in Europe.
