Calendar of FC Barcelona

The season 2023/2024 of Raphinha took a different nuance to the expected in the pre-season. The extreme, the one who in the past period struggled elbow to elbow by the titularity in the right-handed side with Ousmane Dembélé, without a lot of success, since the French added a greater quantity of minutes. Nevertheless, after the course of the 'Mosquito' to the PSG in the past market estival, presaged that the ex of the Leeds would be the headline indiscutido of the position for this campaign. However, his reality has suffered a dump different by diverse causes.

The expulsion in front of the Getafe conditioned to Raphinha

The native of Carry Cheerful started this period being headline in the première of the Barcelona group in LaLiga in front of the Getafe CF in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. After showing a stellar level during 42 minutes, leading the attack culé in front of the combined 'azulón' extremely uncomfortable in defence and with a proposal of game provocadora, Raphinha saw wrapped in the first problem of the campaign.

The right extreme assaulted to Gastón Álvarez, which him marginó of this meeting and, to worsen the things, the complexity of the action carried to that the Committee of Competition sanctioned it with two parties more. This generated his second big setback of the season: the meteoric irruption of Lamine Yamal, the one who, in spite of his youth, showed a stellar and irreverent level that liked the sufficient to Xavi Hernández as to do it owner of the position.

From this, afterwards to having fulfilled his two meetings of sanction, Raphinha found with a Lamine Yamal in constant growth at stake and minutes of action, what it relegó again to a role of secondary actor. Only it added a minute in front of the Osasuna, 26 in front of the Betis, 18 in front of the Celtic and completed the 90 minutes in front of the Mallorca. During this periplo, marked a pair of goals (one against the Betis and another against the Mallorca).

The injury in front of the Seville, new obstacle for the Brazilian

In the calendar avecinaba a duel of big level against the Seville, in which the technician of Terrassa would take it into account for the eleven headline and that it could suppose an opportunity to settle in the eleven Barcelona. However, lamentably for him, this duel represented his third problem in the campaign.

It passed the minute 37 in the clash between Andalusians and Catalan when Raphinha suffered a split fibrilar in the biceps femoral of the right thigh. This physical mishap separated it of the fields during 27 days, losing four meetings (Granada, Athletic, Port wine and Shakthar) in a stage in which trainer egarense began to support it like titling.

Raphinha Already is recovered and smart to be key for the Barcelona

Finally, the Brazilian accelerated his recovery and could go in in the announcement of the Classical in front of the Real Madrid, ingresando to the 77. Although it could not do a lot, further of a finish acrobatic of Chilean that did not succeed, this meeting has served him to go taking continuity in his game and go back to grow like an important footballer for the diagram of Xavi Hernández.

For now, the panorama seems to begin to clear , since Lamine Yamal needs to go in in a period of rotation because of the quantity of parties that has played. Besides, the fact that Ferran Torres have been considered more like a false nine is not surprising. Therefore, it would not be odd that Raphinha recover his notoriety in the right side and begin to settle in the game of the Barça, adding minutes in front of the Real Sociedad.
