Ronald Koeman decided to bet by Samuel Umtiti against the Elche to the detriment of Clément Lenglet. The Dutch 'punished' to the ex of the Seville after his error against the Cádiz, that cost him to the Barça two points, and left him in the bench. By this reason, to the technician barcelonista did not remain him more remedy that 'throw' of 'Big Sam', since with the injury of Ronald Araújo is the only alternative that has available.

Luckily, the bet did not go out him at all badly to the trainer of Zaandam, since the frank-Cameroonian hardly suffered against the ilicitanos. In spite of playing against a '9' uncomfortable and dangerous like Lucas Boyé, the one of Yaoundé was very calm and lived a night plácida. The Argentinian almost did not put him in difficulties because it fell more to the side of Gerard Hammered, and the extremes of the Elche neither upset him too much.

The Alicante went out to the Camp Nou to defend and gave the balloon to the Barça, something that appreciated the Frenchman, that when more it suffers is playing against fast forwards to the space. Luckily, the ones of Fran Escribà almost did not attain to go out in counterattack and the ex of the Olympique of Lyon was calm at the side of Hammered. But during the calm also can arrive the storm and in this case almost arrives in the second part.

To fault of five minutes for the end, with the already decided meeting, Umtiti went to the floor and remained hurting during a minute. It gave the impression that it could have gone back to lesionar and the drama visited all the Camp Nou, since the Barcelona does not walk precisely sobrado of effective in the centre of his defence. The defender had to withdraw momentáneamente of the field and did to jump all the alarms.

Luckily, only a minute afterwards the Frenchman went back to jump to the terrain of game and finished the party with normality. Everything remained in a fright and, unless the Barça announce something this Thursday, the defender will be in full conditions to play against the Seville this Saturday. It will be necessary to see if Koeman goes back to bet by him or decides to give him another opportunity to Lenglet, that in front of the Elche went out in the second part by Hammered.

Araújo Could be smart for Seville

Also it is necessary to take into account that Araújo is in the process final of his recovery and that his ankle is almost cured. If the charrúa has the high doctor for Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, something that is not at all clear, can that the technician 'throw' of him, since before his injury was being the best head office of the team. Everything will depend on his physical state and of the trainings that can make beside the group until then.
