The stop of selections always leaves estragos in the clubs and for the FC Barcelona is not the exception and less when they confront to key parties that can determine the immediate future of the culés in LaLiga Santander and Champions League. The Barcelona picture will live in a week three 'final' in which to the team only suffices him mark of three in three for 'survive'.

In addition to all the problems that drags the team from the beginning of season, defensive and ofensivamente, it is necessary to add him the drops in the defensive saga, the zone more 'feeble' of the team directed by Ronald Koeman, remembering that Araújo lesionó with the selection of Uruguay and will be drop, at least, to the end of the next week. Also it is the case of a Sergiño Dest that returns to the limit to the City after having played during the morning of this Thursday.

Koeman Will have to take a lot of decisions, because Araújo came being an indisputable headline and a pillar for the defensive saga, although his last performance with the Barça, in front of the Athletic of Madrid, was not the most stood out. The 'charrúa', nevertheless, is a key player for the blaugrana and will be a drop more than sensitive.

The natural option is that Eric García and Gerard Hammered was the pair of defenders title, but there is a problem 'extra': in the sides. It will be necessary to see how arrives Sergiño Dest, the one who can be 'replaced' by Òscar Mingueza or by the very discussed Sergi Roberto, the one who also can play by the right lane.

However, for the Champions Koeman will find another problem.

It fits to remember that Eric García was expelled by double yellow in the crash in Lisbon, and will lose the visit of the Dinamo, to the equal that Ronald Araújo. In this sense, the options of the Barcelona trainer reduce to Gerard Hammered and the 'descartes': Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti. The first alone has played 95 minutes in this season (90 in front of the Getafe and four against the Athletic of Madrid), whereas 'Big Sam' still has not debuted in this course.
