The calendar of the FC Barcelona braked mildly in the month of September, but after the stop of selections, touches to think in the taken action. The start of the campaign has been complicated for the Catalans and no longer can allow more distractions in a demanding fight by the titles, by what the next commitments will be determinants to know if the team is approaching to his best version or will have to suffer to continue advancing.

As it said Ernesto Valverde, the international commitments divide the season, and the challenge is served on the way to October. The route will not be easy neither in the Camp Nou neither to domicile, because it does time that remained clear that there is not small rival. Valencia (home), Borussia Dortmund (was), Granada (was), Villarreal (home), Getafe (was), Inter of Milan (home) and Seville (home) are the next opponents of the culés, and there are not reasons to think that any one of these meetings go to be a walk.

In this sense, the Barcelona have several questions that answer in the weeks to come, regarding the game, to the community and to the individualities. In the City Condal always plays under pressure and the answers could go arriving with naturalidad to base of victories, but if this no sucede there will be problems in the ambitious project barcelonista. These are some of the questions that will touch to face próximamente.

The questions to resolve of the Barça, line by line


The goal is one of the most defined plots of the Barça, and hardly there are doubts on his preparation. Marc-André ter Stegen went back of the so concentrated holidays and sure as always, and perhaps the only incógnita is when will be able to Net Walled to reappear after his operation. The return of the Brazilian is not urgent because in League and Champions commands the German, but to the recently arrived touches him confirm the good feelings that offered in the pre-season.


The otrora solid retaguardia culé has cracked in the start of the season, and urge find answers to his evils. The priority is to know why the Catalans have been so fragile in his last parties, and put remedy so that when they confront to greater rivals, the worry was in the contrary area, and no in the dangers that rondan to the one of Ter Stegen.

To individual level, also there are several pending subjects, and apart from the titularity of Gerard Hammered Clément Lenglet and Jordi Alba, Valverde has to show if it is convinced with Nélson Semedo or still prefers to Sergi Roberto. On the same line, it touches to determine if the rotations will give gone in to the youngsters Jean-Clair Todibo, Moussa Wagué and Junior Firpo, and if the crisis of Samuel Umtiti can park of definite form.

Centre of the field

The medullary also has a sinfín of doubts, beginning by which is the ideal configuration so that the Barça shine. The míster has a lot of options and distinct profiles that complement , but of the room of machines depends everything, if the defence lives calmer and if the forward has more opportunities to mark or remains painfully isolated, something that sucedió in moments of the visits to Saint Mamés and The Sadar.

In the analysis one to one also there is a lot of cloth for cutting, since all the names are tied to important questions: Has rope Sergio Busquets to keep on being key piece? It will reappear Ivan Rakitic after the doubts on his future? How can see to the best Frenkie of Jong? Where it can improve the performance of Arthur? It is Sergi Roberto to be headline? Has hollow Carles Aleñá? Which will be this year the role of Arturo Vidal?


The majority of questions in the leading have generated them the injuries, but even so subjects that need solution. To the Barça is costing him generate and this can not depend only of Leo Messi, in addition to the pressure that supposes to play without a reference like Luis Suárez. Ousmane Dembélé Will have to take a step forward if it wants to ensure a future in the Camp Nou, and also is missing to know which sucederá with the quarry when they reappear the cracks and where can fit to Antoine Griezmann that is not neither nine neither extreme.
