The FC Barcelona model 2022-2023 set up his new season of official way the past Saturday when they received to the Ray Vallecano by the first day of LaLiga Santander. However, the debut in the Spotify Camp Nou of the square directed by Xavi Hernández was far to be the expected and the blaugranas could not happen of a tie to 0 in front of the 'franjirrojos'. Further of the result, the performance of the team did not finish to convince and therefore the egarense is in research of solutions.

One of the greater problems of the Catalan group was in the right side, where Araújo went out of start and never was comfortable. The Uruguayan, that tends to manage in said position when it plays with his national selection, still follows familiarising with the demarcation and the fault of job in the same happened him bill in front of the Madrilenian team. In spite of being very solvent in defence as of habit, to the hour to handle with the balloon in the feet Ronald suffered more than the account and subtracted him offensive power to the Barça.

For this reason, Xavi is in research of solutions and would be had to make some significant changes in the alignment in front of the Real Sociedad in order to change the dynamics of his square. In this sense, the right side would see modified and, as 'SPORT', Sergi Roberto has all the 'ballots' to go out from the start. The canterano would see benefited by the presence of Brais Méndez in the left lane 'txuri-urdin', since when being a born midfield player and no an extreme would offer him advantages to the '20' culé.

What if it is true is that Roberto has won him the 'pulseada' to Dest in the right-handed band. Both footballers had several opportunities by part of Hernández along the pre-season, but the trainer of Terrassa has 'sentenced' to the American when leaving it by out of the announcement for the party in front of the Ray and aims to repeat in the list of the crash of this Sunday, by what Sergi is the only alternative for the side waiting for a hypothetical signing.

The replacement of Busquets

On the other hand, Xavi will have to choose to the substitute of Sergio Busquets in the half of the field. The legendary culé was expelled in the debut suspender belt of the blaugranas when committing a clear infringement to Radamel Falcao, reason whereby will not be available in Anoeta. Thus, the egarense will have to choose, in principle, between Pjanic and Frenkie of Jong to occupy the place of the captain. However, the situation of the Dutch (with his future in the 'air') complicates his options, by what of not opting by the bosnio, Franck Kessié could be another alternative.
