Jean-Clair Todibo will debut this season with Barça against Sevilla thanks to the loss of Lenglet, who was expelled against Getafe. The Frenchman is facing his first big fire test at the Camp Nou and is expected to pass it with a note
The red that saw Clément Lenglet against the Getafe will force to Ernesto Valverde to put to Jean-Clair Todibo this Sunday in front of the Seville. The central youngster French will play his first official minutes in the Camp Nou, where only has played in pre-season. In Getafe debuted this season after the expulsion of the ex sevillista and in front of the hispalenses will debut this course like titling.
It will be the first big proof of fire that has Todibo since it arrived to the FC Barcelona in the market of signings of winter of the past year. The defender hardly explained for Ernesto Valverde in the second half of the past course and did not debut until the day 32 against the Huesca, in the Alcoraz. It left good feelings inside what fits, but did not go back to play until the antepenultimate day against the Celtic, in Vigo. That was his last party of the campaign and has not gone back to have minutes until the past week in front of the Getafe.
Happen of not playing practically at all in ten months to be headline in the Camp Nou against all a Seville is an important jump for a so young footballer like him. Todibo Has only 19 years and hardly accumulates 13 parties like professional to his backs. Against the ones of Julen Lopetegui will have to forget of all this and give the level demanded for a defender of the Barça.
The team barcelonista trusts he on a long-term basis and thinks that will be important before or afterwards. The Milan or the Bayer Leverkusen wanted him in summer, but the culés denied to undo of him. Has potential to be very good player, but right now Ernesto Valverde considers that it is too green. The trainer extremeño hardly is having he by this reason, but the red to Lenglet will give him the opportunity to claim in front of his technician.
The continuous injuries of Samuel Umtiti do, besides, that Todibo go to be the third head office in a lot of moments of the season. Few trust that the ex of the Olympique of Lyon go back to have the regularity and the level of does a pair of years, and is therefore by what the ex of the Toulouse has to take a step forward and show that has level to play in the Barça.
Todibo Will confront to Luuk of Jong
Against the Seville is in front of his big opportunity since it arrived to the Barcelona in January. The sevillistas have 13 points right now, the same that the Barça, with what the crash is key for the blaugrana. The central will confront probably with Luuk of Jong, that until the moment is the '9' headline of Lopetegui in League. The Dutch is not surrendering as it expected and still has not marked any goal. Nevertheless, his height and his capacity to play of backs to goal will do him a dangerous opponent for a Todibo needy of minutes and good feelings.
