Ousmane Dembélé is still not physically at 100% and everything indicates that against Villarreal he will be a substitute again. For this reason, Xavi seems that he will align one or even two players between Abde, Demir and Ilias

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona will follow without being able to have Ansu Fati for the party of this Saturday against the Villarreal. The '10' is to day of today doubts even for the 'final' against the Bayern of Munich of 8 December, by what will not be in the Ceramics. Besides, Ousmane Dembélé still is not to 100% and, in principle, will not initiate the meeting in the eleven initial. The normal is that Xavi Hernández reserve him for the second part, the same that did against the Benfica.

Therefore, if 'Dembouz' is not headline, the Barcelona trainer will have to choose to somebody that occupy the right side. In this sense, seems that there are three jewels of the Masia that opt to the place. The first is Yusuf Demir, that was to title in this place the Tuesday in Champions and completed one more than worthy first part. It gave a crossbar with a lovely shot of left-handed, put to proof to the goalkeeper of the lusos in another occasion and left good details with balloon. In the second, nevertheless, disappeared and is this what subtracts him options to repeat titularity.

On the other hand it is Abde Ezzalzouli, recently arrived to the Barça B pertinent of Hercules. The Moroccan already has played three crashes with the first team and in the last, in front of the Espanyol, went the best of the picture culé. It went out to the rest and went back crazy to the defence espanyolista with his speed, his dribbling and his imagination. Xavi took good note of this and could give him at last the opportunity to go out of start this Saturday against the Villarreal. It is the player more resembled Dembélé that can put if what wants to is vertigo and rapidity.

The last candidate to the right-handed side is Ilias Akhomach, the more youngster and talentoso of the three. The canterano of 17 years was to title in the derbi, but did not give the performance expected and went to the bench in the intermediate by Abde. Has a lot of quality and a lot of future, but is the one who greener is between this trio. Nevertheless, the technician of Terrassa has him in high esteem, trust a lot in him and therefore it can not descartarse that it insist in him like titling.

If it plays with a 4-3-3, Abde remains alone

It is necessary to say that there is a possibility in which only Abde can fit to 100% in the diagram of Xavi. In case that the míster decide to go back to the 4-3-3 usual and shelve the 3-4-3 that took out against the Benfica, is likely that Gavi can accommodate to the right, the same that has sucedido in other meetings. This would do that it went the left band the one who remained free, by what Ezzalzouli would adapt better that Demir and Ilias, that are left-handed and stand out more to leg changed. The Moroccan, instead, is right-handed and thanks to his dribbling and big speed can shine in both sides.
