Sergio Busquets was admonished during the first-half against the Leganés in Butarque, and won't be able to play the next weekend against the Atlético de Madrid in the Wanda Metropolitano
One of the captains and of the most important players of the FC Barcelona, Sergio Busquets, will not be able to play the next weekend against the Athletic of Madrid in Wanda Metropolitan. The midfield player of Badía received a yellow card in the first time in front of the Leganés, in Butarque, that already is the fifth that accumulates in LaLiga Santander 2019-20 and involves him sanction of face to the next day.
The action occurred in the minute 35, when Sergio Busquets cut with fault an intentona of the group 'pepinero' in attack. With the yellow cardboard, Sergio Busquets fulfils cycle and Ernesto Valverde will have to pose the inclusion of Arturo Vidal or Rakitic in a room of machines beside Frenkie of Jong and Arthur Melo, with the aim to plant face to the 'colchoneros'.
The drop of Busquets will be very important for the FC Barcelona in the centre of the field, and more after the team have worn out some days before in front of the Borussia Dortmund in the Camp Nou, where will try to certify mathematically the pass to eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League with a good collective performance.
The absence of the of Badía, this yes, will allow to Valverde follow giving minutes to Arturo Vidal that this Saturday saw again goal against the Leganés and was crucial in the victory of the blaugrana. Rakitic Will expect also his opportunity from the bench after having had minutes in Butarque, in which it could be one of his last parties with the Barça if it does the cases in the market of winter.
Valverde, with a lot of alternatives in the staff
Ernesto Valverde, in definite, has sufficient basic wardrobe as for suplir the sensitive drop of Busquets, with other alternatives like Carles Aleñá or Sergi Roberto, or even Riqui Puig if it dares to bet by the player of the filial. On the other hand, also it could test again Valverde with a 4-2-3-1 that allowed the inclusion of Messi, Suárez, Griezmann and Dembélé in the eleven.
It can not say, in any case, that the proof of this Saturday in Butarque with the four forwards went out too well. The FC Barcelona will have to improve collectively in the weeks to come if it wants to aspire to titles this season. And playing as in the party in front of the Leganés, definitely, will have very complicated to achieve them.
