After several months of rest, Barça face the Champions League again, and want to tie a victory in San Paolo. Napoli will not give up without a fight, and Quique Setién has some doubts about his line-up
The FC Barcelona has stepped forward in LaLiga, and now pretends to repeat in his eliminatory of Champions League against the Napoli. The Catalans started with victory a key week for his immediate future, and before thinking in the appointment with the Real Madrid and Santiago Bernabéu will have to confront to Saint Paolo. This Tuesday, from the 21:00 hours, the aim will be to tie up a decisive victory in Italy.
The announcement of the Barça arrives with some novelties, that aim, especially, to the filial. Further of the descarte of the lesionados Ousmane Dembélé, Luis Suárez, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto, stands out the presence of Martin Braithwaite, that will not be able to participate when being his only valid licence in the Spanish championship. In spite of everything, Quique Setién has carried him to do group, and also could resort to an extensive list of canteranos: Iñaki Crag, Riqui Puig, Álex Hill, Ronald Araujo and Sergio Akieme have travelled with the 'greater'.
The 'azzurri' can seem an affordable rival, but have given sufficient warnings as so that the Barcelona do not trust . In spite of his problems in the Series To, accumulate recent victories in front of clubs so powerful like the Juventus, the Lazio or the Inter of Milan, by what will do fault the best version of the culés to return to the Camp Nou with options to be in chambers. This is our forecast for the party:
Possible alignments of the Napoli-Barça
- Napoli: Meret; I gave Lorenzo, Manolas, Maksimovic, Mário Rui; Demme, Allan, Zielinski; Alley, Milik and Insigne.
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet, Junior Firpo; Of Jong, Busquets, Arthur; Messi, Griezmann and Ansu Fati.
Iñaki Crag could remain in the terracing of Saint Paolo and Net Walled aim to the bench, because every time that there is 'final' in sight, the fans puts in hands of Marc-André ter Stegen. The German does not accustom to fail to his, and if Leo Messi is lethal in the contrary area, in the own, to the cancerbero of Mönchengladbach there is few that can argue him.
The injuries have cebado this time with the sides, by what the titularity of Nélson Semedo and Junior Firpo seems ensured. In these moments, the luso does not have clear alternative and is to very good level, and the Hispanic-dominican begins to grow in the gap freed by Jordi Alba. Beside them, and in spite of that Ronald Araujo is available, aims to form Gerard Hammered, and the big doubt is who will accompany to the Barcelonan. So much Samuel Umtiti like Clément Lenglet have options, although Setién has not wanted to give any track on his intentions.
Although it does not renounce to be followed testing, the míster has found in the 4-3-3 the ideal system for his team. His best performances have arrived of the hand of this training, and usually have done it with Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong in the initial bet, something that, with the Dutch improving to steps enlarged, neither would be a surprise. If the preparador Cantabrian does not save any ace under the sleeve, Arthur would be the companion of both to tame with his pause to the Napoli, and Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic would expect his turn in the bench.
Whatever happens in Saint Paolo, Leo Messi will be in the eleven initial, and his brilliant been of form will be the most dangerous weapon of the Barça. Without Suárez, Dembélé or the surprising Braithwaite, there are few alternatives for the culés, that could throw of a change of system, plant to Riqui Puig or Álex Hill like false extremes or bet by the most expected, that is Antoine Griezmann in the position of nine and Ansu Fati, that had some minutes of rest in LaLiga, in the left band.
