The FC Barcelona needs to follow adding of three in three until it finish the season and in front of the RCD Espanyol will go back to need the victory to aspire to LaLiga. The Real Madrid is right now four points above the culés, that to be champions have to win it all and expect that the whites lose five points of the 12 that subtract at stake. The mission is complicated, but the ones of Quique Setién will try to act the miracle in the four days that remain.

In front will be an Espanyol that already is sentenced and that it could consummate his descent to Second Division in the Camp Nou. A Barcelona victory would command to the pericos to the category of silver of the Spanish football. The ones of Rufete need to win to follow with life a week more. It will be a derbi very uneven, but the Barça has to show his superiority on the field. For this, the trainer barcelonista will throw of the base that exhibited in Villarreal and goleó by 1-4. It could have retouchings in the midfield, but expects that the training keep on being the 4-3-1-2 that so well worked in the Stadium of the Ceramics. This is our forecast for the party:

Possible alignments of the Barça-Espanyol

  • FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Riqui Puig; Messi, Suárez and Griezmann.
  • RCD Espanyol: Diego López; Javi López, Bernardo, Cabrera, Dídac; Marc Rock, David López, Melendo; Embarba, Of Tomás and Wu Lei.

Ter Stegen

Ter Stegen Has been key so that the Barça was struggling by LaLiga and does not fit doubt that will be it if the Barcelona want to be champions. The germano is a low insurance sticks and against the Espanyol will be the guardian of the goal a night more. Raúl of Tomás, the big star of the parakeets, will be his big rival and the footballer to the that the German will have to stop at all costs for the sake of his team.


The defence keeps on being the toneless point of the Barça and in Villarreal went back to have varied unfit. One of them finish in the goal of Gerard Moreno for the tie, but luckily gave him the turn to the fast marker. Nevertheless, the level of the saga that formed Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet and Alba was remarkable in general lines. The sides surrendered well in attack taking advantage of the spaces that create with the 4-3-1-2 and the central turned off the fires that it was necessary to turn off. The normal is that Setién keep to the four and bet for giving them continuity.

Rakitic-Busquets-Riqui Puig

The centre of the field worked against the Villarreal, especially thanks to the figure of Sergi Roberto, that gave him a lot dynamism and work to the game of the team. Nevertheless, the one of Reus could rest thinking in the crash in front of the Valladolid, that aims to be more complicated that the one of this Wednesday. It could rest also Arturo Vidal, that lately has played it almost everything, and in the place of the Chilean and the Catalan would go in Ivan Rakitic and Riqui Puig. Nevertheless, it can not descartar that Setién decide to bet again by the trio Busquets, Vidal, Sergi to follow with the good line of the ancient Madrigal.


Up it does not expect any change after the partidazo of the MSG in Villarreal. It was definitely the meeting in which better understood the three since the French arrived to the Barça and it is necessary to bet by the trident again. The 4-3-1-2 freed to Griezmann and improved his game, by what the Cantabrian would have to follow insisting in this training. Messi also shined in the mediapunta and only was missing him the goal in the last party. Ansu Fati, that marked in the Stadium of the Ceramics, seems that it will expect again his opportunity in the bench.
