Ernesto Valvede has given already the list of summoned for the FC Barcelona-Villarreal of this Tuesday. The announcement has two important novelties regarding the one of the Granada. The first and more important is the turn of Ousmane Dembélé, that has recovered to time of the injury, and presumably will have minutes in the second half in front of the castellonenses.

The French does not play from the first day of League, when it fell lesionado against the Athletic Club. The French finished the party and did not inform of his annoyances to the club. In the training of two days afterwards noticed pain and after the medical proofs announced his injury. It has been it went more than a month, but his return is a big news for a Barça that needs speed and joy up.

The normal would be that had between 15 and 20 minutes in the second part against the 'yellow submarine'. Valverde Will not want to risk to give him more time on the terrain of game by fear to a possible relapse. The muscular problems of the Frenchman are of public domain and is therefore by what the 'Txingurri' will go with feet of lead in this so expected return.

On the other hand, in the list has surprised not seeing to Ivan Rakitic. The Croat has remained went after being headline against the Granada for the first time this course. It was not well and it was substituted to the rest, but his performance was not worse that the one of the rest of his mates. After having minutes against Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and Granada, quedarse out of the announcement is a step backwards for the Balkan in his wish to recover his status in the team.

Aleñá Went in by Rakitic and C. Pérez remained was

The turn of Dembélé demanded that Valverde decided between Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez. The trainer barcelonista already had hinted of which would be his election when giving him the titularity to the juvenile in Dortmund and with this has confirmed it. The Catalan extreme will not be in front of the castellonenses and is for seeing which role occupies from now in the first team.

The gap that leaves Rakitic, on the other hand, occupies it Carles Aleñá. The canterano had remained out of all the announcements from the first day. It was to title against the Athletic, was substituted in the rest and, since, inexplicably disappeared completely of the map. The 'Txingurri' has given him sideways during all the month of September, but retells with him for this crash. The one of Mataró could have minutes to try recover feelings.
