All the international of the FC Barcelona are already in Barcelona and Ronald Koeman goes to recover at last to all his effective to prepare the party against the Getafe. The culés visit to the azulones this Saturday in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in a meeting complicated in front of one of the most uncomfortable rivals of LaLiga. Thus, the group barcelonista will have to give his best version if it wants to win.

The Dutch trainer will have to decide what do with the players that have happened the last week and average with his selections. Many of them have played it all or almost all and could arrive tired, by what can not descartar that it do more than a change in his eleven by this reason. One of the footballers that has not rested these days and that has contested it all has been Leo Messi​, that completed the 90 minutes with Argentina so much in front of Ecuador as against Bolivia.

The '10' no longer is a youngster and his 33 years weigh more than ever, by what is one of the firmest candidates to start with in the bench the Saturday. In an alike situation is Miralem Pjanic, that played 120 minutes in front of Northern Ireland, the 90 more half hour of extention. Besides, the bosnio played other 75 against Holland, but only 33 minutes in front of Poland, since it received a hit in the back and had to be substituted. This injury does him be doubt, by what all indicates that in no case it will be to title in the Coliseum.

Martin Braithwaite, that had already of by himself few options to play, contested 250 minutes between the three crashes that played Denmark. It is the Barcelona with more time on the field, although taking into account that up to now it had not played this course, the tiredness will not be the reason by which was not in Getafe. On the other hand, Antoine Griezmann played 204 and could be a candidate to rest, but if it does it Messi, the French will play safe case.

Frenkie Of Jong completed the 90 minutes in the last two commitments of Holland, but did not contest neither one only against Mexico, by what returns to Barcelona with 180, the same that Leo. Nevertheless, his physicist and his age do that it was a distinct case and will be the Saturday in the eleven with security. Also it will play surely Clément Lenglet, that was on the terrain of game 180 minutes with France, but that arrived to the stop rested after losing by sanction the meeting in front of the Seville.

Coutinho, Busquets and Ansu had rest

Philippe Coutinho, that stood out with Brazil, finishes the week with 167 minutes in the legs, by what would not have to have problem to play in Getafe. Sergio Busquets played still less with Spain, 152, and besides did not contest neither one only in the last crash of the selection in front of Ukraine, by what will be headline. Ansu Fati Hardly arrived to the 115 and if Messi does not play, he will repeat in the trident from above without any doubt.

Finally, it is necessary to stand out that Riqui Puig contested 105 minutes with Spain Sub-21; Ronald Araújo played with Uruguay in front of Ecuador the 90 minutes; Sergi Roberto also was 90 on the lawn with the combined Spanish; Francisco Trincao, 80 with Portugal; and Pedri was 75 with the 'Rojita'. Any of the youngsters played too much and Sergi neither, by what if Koeman will have to all available and rested.
