After a window of summer extremely moved, the FC Barcelona achieved 'apuntalar' his forward with a pair of reinforcements of guarantees. The arrival of Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski and the 'renewal' of Ousmane Dembélé, in addition to the definite return of Ansu Fati, left to Xavi Hernández with a 'fan' of alternatives to conform his offensive trident. And it is that in addition to these four active, the staff culé also has the presence of Ferran Torres and Memphis Depay, by what the egarense had a beautiful 'puzzle' that resolve.

The principle of the present season left in evidence the plan of the Catalan trainer. The goleador Polish is 'immovable' in his diagram, being the main reference of the team in attack and the player that marks differences to base of goals, as it has showed in a series of parties in this course. However, the doubts of the of Terrassa are born in the companions of the '9', since although Dembélé is a 'fixed', the third member of the trident follows without defining .

In principle, Raphinha split like the complement of 'Lewy' and 'Dembouz' in the offensive. The Brazilian has been the third more used forward by Xavi, accumulating 835 minutes in 16 parties, 10 of these like titling. In League, the ex of the Leeds has annotated his only goal in what it goes of campaign and has delivered 2 assistances in 11 meetings, whereas in Champions registered another pair of passes of goal in 5 crashes. Nevertheless, the player lost his titularity after the bad series lived by the club between the duels in front of the Inter and the Madrid, although it keeps on being an of the main alternative of his technician.

By his part, Ansu Fati follows working in recovering his best version to do with a gap in the eleven initial of Hernández. Until the moments, the canterano has been used as 'revulsivo', adding 5 titularities in 18 parties for a total of 660 minutes. During this time of game, the bisauguineano has annotated 3 goals, all these in League, and has delivered 4 assistances, three of these in the local championship and a more in the League of Champions.

Ferran follows insisting

The case of Ferran Torres is similiar to the of Fati. The player was 'indisputable' for Xavi from his arrival in January of this year, but an injury suffered in the pre-season, added to the incorporations of the club, left him without place in the alignment of the egarense. Like this then , the Valencian has formed part of 16 meetings in this campaign, going out from the start in 5 of these. In the 610 minutes that has been on the lawn, the '11' has celebrated 2 so many in League and 3 in Champions League, with 1 assistance in the European competition.

Dembélé, indisputable

Finally, Ousmane Dembélé does not form part of any debate for Xavi Hernández. The French is the second forward that more minutes has contested after Lewandowski, with a total of 1.143' in 18 parties, being headline in 14 of them. The player has known to be differential and has annotated 4 goals, 3 of these in League and 1 in Champions, and has delivered 7 assistances, 5 in the local championship and 2 in Europe, by what his role like second 'sword' of the Pole does not argue .
