Barça is still preparing its Champions League match against Napoli, and Quique Setién must rebuild his team. The coach has started to design the defense and has several decisions to make for the line-up
The countdown for the Champions League has begun, and the FC Barcelona goes up the rhythm thinking in his commitment against the Napoli. The Catalans have pending duties after the visit to Saint Paolo, in which there was not good feelings but achieved rescue a 1-1 very useful. In spite of that a tie without goals already would cost to put in the final stages of Lisbon, the intention is to win and advance loaded of confidence.
Quique Setién has a lot of decisions for taking of face to the crash with the Italians, because in his eleven there are several doubts. The Cantabrian and the staff gathered after a bitter denouement in LaLiga and limaron asperezas, and now, after a week on holiday in which the mission was recargar the physical batteries and mentally, the obligation is to step forward, adjust tactical and últimar details and launch to by a decisive triumph.
Explaining that Marc-André ter Stegen is indisputable headline under sticks, the first incógnitas for the míster appeared in the defence, in concrete, in the axis of the saga. If there are not surprises neither frights in the next days, Nélson Semedo and Jordi Alba will be in the sides, and another of the fixed is Gerard Hammered that during a time has kept like the only central healthy of the first team. And almost also of the filial...
The technician has received good news on Clément Lenglet, and everything aims to that the couple in the retaguardia no longer runs danger. The one of Beauvais finished the championship of the regularity with annoyances and did to jump the alarms, because the changing room does not walk sobrado of effective and because of all the available, is the more habituado to play with the canterano and with which exists a rapport and greater performance.
Fewer certainties exist on the option to back them to both, and is for seeing who will seat in the bench. For the time being, the favourite is another member of the Barça B, Óscar Mingueza, because the curse of the central has gone back to cebar with the culés. The presence of Samuel Umtiti is not ensured by his problems of knee, and Ronald Araújo and Jorge Cuenca fell in the playoff and in a recent training.
Setién Also expects to midfield players and forwards
In addition to the defence, the puzzle that faces Setién also affects to the medullary, with several absences confirmed. The doubt in this case is if Arthur will put end to his rebellion and if, in case to do it, will retell for the ex of the Real Betis, that is very needed by the sanctions to Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal. The most likely is that it keep the system and resort to pieces like Frenkie of Jong, Sergi Roberto and Ivan Rakitic, knowing, clear is, that there is other perlas like Riqui Puig or Monchu that are in the recámara.
Finally, also it will be necessary to expect to check the state of the forward, with several fixed and some players touched. To Leo Messi and Ansu Fati supposes them to full performance, Luis Suárez watches his knee and wishes to go back to shine in Europe and without Martin Braithwaite, that is not inscribed in the tournament, the trainer is slope of the evolutions of the lesionados Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé, that expect to arrive to time.
