FC Barcelona faces Eibar on this day before the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. Setién could introduce some changes in the initial eleven thinking about the European clash
The FC Barcelona him recortó two points to the Real Madrid the past weekend and looks forward to to put leader this day. The culés receive to the Eibar in the Camp Nou, whereas the whites visit to the Raise in the always complicated Ciutat of València. The Barcelona play to the 16:00 hours of this Saturday, by what the whites already will know what has done his big rival in LaLiga before confronting to the granotas from the 21:00 of this Saturday.
The list of summoned of the FC Barcelona has brought two big novelties with the presence of Martin Braithwaite and Akieme. The Danish could debut with the Barça after being presented this Thursday, but aims to the bench. The one of the filial arrives to help to Junior Firpo in the left after the injury of Jordi Alba. The eleven could bring important novelties in defence and in the centre of the field, since Quique Setién could take into account that the Tuesday there is Champions. The santanderino could rotar to several footballers thinking in the meeting against the Naples. This is the bet that do from 'FCBN'.
Possible alignments of the Barça-Eibar
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Umtiti, Junior Firpo; Of Jong, Busquets, Vidal; Messi, Griezmann and Ansu Fati.
- Eibar: Dmitrovic; Arbilla, Esteban Boroughs, Paulo Oliveira, José Angel Cote; Diop, Edu Expósito, Escalante, Pedro León, Fabián Orellana and Sergi Enrich.
Marc-André ter Stegen went back to be decisive in the last day of League and saved the tie of the Getafe in the second part. It is doing a campaign soberbia in all the senses and, with Leo Messi, is the man of the Barcelona this course. The German will return under the sticks in front of the Eibar and will try to keep on being important for his. The armeros will have an authentic wall in front if they want to mark in the Camp Nou.
Everything seems to indicate that Setién will repeat with the couple Hammered/Umtiti against the Eibar after both played already in front of the Getafe. Clément Lenglet goes back to be available after fulfilling his party of sanction, but the normal would be that it reserved him for the Champions League. Thinking in Europe also could rest Hammered in place of the Frenchman and alone Quique Setién knows the answer to this doubt. Nélson Semedo Could go in by Sergi Roberto in the right, although it also will depend on the one who go to play in Naples. The one who was acting this Saturday, will be to title in the League of Champions. In the left, with Jordi Alba lesionado, Junior Firpo will be the owner of this side.
Also in the centre of the field could have novelties thinking in the Champions. So much Sergio Busquets like Frenkie of Jong could rest, although in 'FCBN' bet by the presence of both, since the Eibar always is a dangerous rival and no voucher lose points. With the companion of the Dutch and the Spanish there is a lot of more doubts, although after his suplencia against the Getafe Arturo Vidal has more options that Arthur, that could be headline in Naples, or Rakitic. The Chilean bothered for contesting only five minutes the past weekend and this titularity would be his prize. Another option so that it can play he is that they rest Of Jong or Busquets and go out Rakitic or Arthur, something that can not descartar. Neither it suits to forget that Saint Paolo is a very hard stadium in which Vidal could give a lot, by what could be acting this Saturday to go out of start the Tuesday.
In the forward, unless there is a change of system and happen to the 4-4-2, is the only place in which it would not have to have changes against the Eibar. Ansu Fati Is surrendering very well in the left and is giving him depth to the team, something that could come very well against the Basques. Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann, by his part, will exchange positions when them apetezca and will try to go back crazy to the defence armera. The '10' wait to individual level break his bad series after four consecutive crashes without marking in LaLiga.
