The calendar of the FC Barcelona is full of challenges, but the postponement of the Classical has generated an unexpected gap. In spite of the wishes of the Catalans to keep it on 26 October, the Committee of Competition denied his celebration and moved it to the month of December, something that will give place to several changes in the immediate planning of the culés, that face an equally important commitment in the Champions League.

This same weekend, obtained the one of LaLiga after winning to the Eibar in Ipurua and fall defeated the Real Madrid in Sound Moix, and the intention is to repeat the played taking advantage of that the Borussia Dortmund, with which shares first place, will measure to the Inter of Milan in a demanding expensive to face in the Signal Iduna Park.
To have kept the party against the whites had opened the door to the rotations, but now is more likely an eleven of gala. In the City Condal have found an unexpected rest in full campaign, what could cause that in addition to trainings and preparation for next clashes, the staff enjoy of some free day to freshen the legs and take strength for what comes.
Ernesto Valverde could do few changes with regard to the visit to Guipúzcoa, in which it obtained a victory with good feelings and of form convincente. Ter Stegen Would keep in the goal and in defence would go in Semedo for suplir to the lesionado Sergi Roberto, whereas I Hammered would accompany to Lenglet -with permission of Umtiti- and Jordi Alba. Of Jong and Arthur seem to have the place ensured and the third leg of the medullary would be for Busquets or Arturo Vidal, and beside Leo Messi and Luis Suárez could appear Antoine Griezmann or Ousmane Dembélé.
Although the Czechs are, theoretically, the feeblest rival of the group, already have showed that they can plant face to the big, because they obtained a valuable tie in his visit to Giuseppe Meazza and did to sweat to the Germans in the Sinobo Stadium, where dominated the ones of house but the visitors imposed thanks to his greater effectiveness in two lethal counterattacks of Achraf Hakimi.
A victory allanaría the way in Champions
After suffering to win to the Inter in the Camp Nou, a victory of the Barça allanaría the way to the eliminatory of Champions, occur what occur in the coliseo germano. After contesting the two first days, the Catalans and the Borussia have four points, by one of the two remaining opponents. His triumph combined with another of the Dortmund would allow them escape and think in the battle by the first place, and a defeat of the ones of Lucien Favre them descolgaría slightly.
