Alejandro Balde is one of the few players that usually are in dynamics of the first team that still have not premièred with Xavi Hernández. The left-handed side, although has index card of the Barça B, has been one more with the greater during good part of the campaign. With Sergi Barjuan even played two consecutive meetings and gave the feeling that it could keep on being important with the one of Terrassa, but for the moment this has not occurred.

In the four parties that carries Xavi in the Barcelona picture, the canterano has not played neither an alone minute. In fact, against the Villarreal even fell of the announcement and was not between the elected of the míster. However, in spite of everything, the circumstances could force to the trainer to have he in the most important crash of what goes of course. Jordi Alba is 'touched', is serious doubt for the 'final' of Champions League of this Wednesday and Balde could have the big opportunity that expected.

The '18' has gone in in the list of summoned and could force in the duel in front of the Bayern of Munich, since the Barcelona plays the pass to eighth of final. Nevertheless, if the risk of grave injury is important, can that the technician opt for giving him rest and bet by another footballer in his place. In this case, the doors of the eleven initial would open him wide open to Álex, since there is not another carrilero left-handed in the staff.

In spite of his youth, his inexperience and in spite of have not contested neither an alone minute to the orders of Xavi, Balde could be the best option to play this 'final'. Defensivamente Could suffer, but ofensivamente could contribute a lot thanks to his speed, his impudence and his good driving. Besides, it could adapt perfectly to the 3-4-3 that used the egarense against the Benfica and the Villarreal.

In case of not wanting to bet by the Catalan lateral youngster if Alba is not in conditions to play the party, the trainer barcelonista will plant to Sergiño Dest in the left with almost total security. The Dutch with American passport has played in several occasions in this place and will not be him extraneous. This change of position would do also that in the right probably had to play Óscar Mingueza in case to put a 4-3-3. If it went out with the 3-4-3, can that Ousmane Dembélé did of extreme and of carrilero.

Balde Deserves that Xavi him of an opportunity

Although the alternative to put to Dest on foot changed could go out well, the true is that it would go a bit against of all what represents Xavi. The one of Terrassa arrived to the Barcelona to recover the identity futbolística and also to go back to bet by the Masia. Balde Is one of the 'jewels' of the quarry and in case of need it would be necessary 'throw' of him. Always there are risks for being a so important crash and in front of a so big rival, but say that the best project in the big appointments and Alejandro wants to be some day one of the best carrileros of the world.
