Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is forced to make the 'reset' that Xavi Hernández asked after the hard defeat suffered in the Classical of the Supercopa, that meant the loss of the first title of the season for the culés. In front of this, the Catalan picture has seen in the need of 'wash expensive' and begin to prepare for the commitment of this Thursday against the Unionistas of Salamanca in the Glass of Rey.

Under this premise, the egarense organised a session of training in the Sportive City Joan Gamper, centred in the recovery and compensation, avoiding force muscularmente to the players, mainly appealing to the work in the gymnasium. Nevertheless, some players yes saw action in the lawn, being in his majority the talents of The Masia to which the one of Terrassa has showed to take into account and that they could even have minutes in the crossing against the square salmantina.

In this sense, the day of practices of the FC Barcelona had the presence of six players of the quarry: Ander Astralaga, Diego Kochen, Marc Casadó, Marc Guiu, Pau Cubarsí and Héctor Fort. Voucher recalcar that these players also travelled to Riad (Saudi Arabia), although any of them enjoyed of minutes in the Supercopa. However, all have had the possibility to be still in the dynamics of the combined blaugrana and perhaps could be considered to contest the duel of eighth of the Glass of Rey.

They will see action these canteranos in the duel in front of the Unionistas?

Regarding the opportunities to play like headlines or ingresar from the bench, Héctor Fort could have more chances, since in the last meeting against the UD Barbastro played the 90 minutes like left side in place of Alejandro Balde, the one who had physical annoyances and no desentonó, by what Xavi Hernández could repeat the formula. Besides, Marc Guiu presents like an attractive option to contribute a new offensive dynamics. It is important to remember that the native Granollers was not summoned in the last duel against the Aragonese cast, since it was reinforcing to the Juvenile To in the Glass of Rey.

Likewise, Pau Cubarsí shows like an interesting option to reinforce the defence, since Iñigo Martínez is lesionado from does several days and Ronald Araújo has to fulfil a suspension by his expulsion in the Supercopa against the Real Madrid. This leaves to Xavi Hernández with alone two options for the defence title: Andreas Christensen and Jules Koundé, by what will need a natural defender to give him depth to the position.

Regarding Marc Casadó, it will be necessary to see if it also has minutes in the party. The case of the pivote is a bit more complex because of the abundance of players in the centre of the field of the FC Barcelona, as Oriol Romeu and Sergi Roberto, that could have action in this clash. Nevertheless, in the crosses of the Glass of Rey, at all descarta, especially when the one of Terrassa is in the clear need to give him a 'sacudón' to his group, this after the poor image showed recently in Riad.
