The first official drop is the one of Philippe Coutinho by a muscular break, but besides the technician also has several footballers 'touched'. Configure the attack will not be so simple as always, because it is necessary to take into account the one who will offer a better performance but also watch not to risk the physicist of any. Waiting for an announcement that also will be reveladora, these are the possibilities.

The alternatives of Ernesto Valverde for the forward of the Barça

Luis Suárez

It does some weeks that is the forward more in shape and the leader of the Barça, and everything aims to that this time neither will be able to rotar. The Uruguayan rested and recovered his maltrecha knee and has reached again his best version, so it will be necessary to squeeze him during some days more. At least, until they begin to have more certainties in shape of high medical.

Leo Messi

In the last days has valued if Messi would have to play or expect to that it happen the stop, but the urgencies have advanced his comeback. The Argentinian has gone in in the announcement, but it will be necessary to see if Valverde prefers to follow reserving him.


Had his moment of glory in the première in Champions, and now splits with a lot of options because it is healthy, concentrated and motivadísimo. To the technician does not like him risk with the recently arrived, but after taking rhythm in the Glass of Rey and improve in Europe, could be interesting deliver him another opportunity in LaLiga without the pressure of an adverse marker and surrounded of mates with experience.

Munir The Haddadi

The canterano also has presented candidature to the eleven, but is more usual to see him play near of the goal and this time the problems are in the bands. An option would be to plant him beside Luis Suárez or move him away something of the area, but of this low form a lot of integers and could have to expect his turn in the bench. It is not an option that was descartada.

Rafinha Alcántara

It was the solution during the first days of drop of Messi and could go back to be it. The profile of half tip that offers Rafinha would award him to the Barça more command of a possession that wants to steal him the Real Betis, and besides has pass, arrival and goal. By the left would be something more limited that in a right where moves with soltura.

Denis Suárez

This year neither it is being easy for the Galician, and his inclusion in the alignment would be a surprise. It gathers the conditions to act by the left band because it is a position to which is accustomed, but Valverde has not given him too many opportunities and does not seem that it go to touch him against the verdiblancos. It could appear from the bench.

Sergi Roberto

The option of the double side has worked in several occasions for the Barça, although it is used to to be better in the final stretch. Having options that would be more natural, the battle between Sergi Robero and Nélson Semedo would be in the right side, and one of them could go in to reinforce the band when they happen the minutes. Neither it is an alternative descartable.

Carles Aleñá

Valverde elogió To the canterano does few days and wants to give him more ball, but although it would adapt to the places in band, there are mates that are by in front. It will be necessary to see if with so many drops does not go back to colarse in the announcement, because if it follows answering in trainings and parties, will see increased his participation in what it remains of season.
