The FC Barcelona returns to LaLiga this weekend, in which it will confront to the Eibar in Ipurua. The Catalans know that they can not despistar after several weeks with commitments of selections, and more taking into account that they want to struggle by the leadership and that the clashes out of house have cost a lot this campaign, in which all his opponents have presented complications to domicile.

Although they already went in in the announcement for the duel, this Friday has confirmed that Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo already have the high medical, something that was not official in the moment to publish the list. This frees completely the Barcelona infirmary, and leaves like only drops for this trip to Gerard Hammered and Ousmane Dembélé, both sanctioned -and also Ronald Araujo- after the duel in front of the Seville.

The one of Yaundé has left backwards at last his physical problems, and already thinks in going back to play and recover his best version. After a season 2018-19 marked by the injuries, the ex of the Olympique of Lyon received another hit in the international stop of September, in which it saw braked by a fissure in the second metatarsiano of the right foot. Still it has not premièred in this course, and expects to add prompt minutes.

The way of the Hispanic-dominican neither is being easy, since it has had to surpass some obstacles to be able to be to disposal of Ernesto Valverde. If first was a distention in the internal lateral ligament of the left knee the one who moved him away some days of the terrains of game, before the party against the Inter of Milan suffered a muscular mishap in the isquiotibiales of his right leg. The ex of the Real Betis, this yes, already accumulates 234 minutes delivered in four meetings, in which even it has contributed a goal.

In spite of being to full disposal of the míster, the two could remain out of the crash against the 'armeros'. The extremeño would be thinking in the couple Jean-Clair Todibo-Clément Lenglet for the axis of the saga, and the left-handed lane would be for Jordi Alba. The explanation to this possible bet is simple, and is that the three players mentioned have more shooting that the two that have been 'touched' until does scarce days.

Valverde Will have to descartar to four footballers

As it opted for carrying to 22 footballers to Eibar, Valverde will have to do four descartes in his list, since the regulation of LaLiga specifies that the announcement can have a maximum number of 18. It will be necessary to see if any of the recently recovered sees the show from the terracing, or if finally the turn is for others of which have made little showing in these first months of season.
