Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández only could work this Friday with fourteen players of the first team to prepare the party in front of the Girona of the Sunday. Waiting for the session of this Saturday to know if it can explain or no with Andreas Christensen that is of permission and Denmark waiting for being dad, the Barcelona team luce quite limited for his XI, but neither still like this seems that Alejandro Balde has sufficient options to be from the beginning in this corresponding duel to the day 16.

Like this it has explained it 'ACE' this Friday, aiming that beside the long list of canteranos that trained with the first team to two days of the party (Astralaga, Martín, Alarcón, Cuéllar, Mikayil, Cubarsí and Fort), so much Balde, as Ferran and Oriol Romeu seem 'condemned' to the bench in front of the Girona. Xavi has the idea to repeat the team that was from the beginning in front of the Athletic of Madrid the past Sunday, and to fault of the return of Christensen, seems that it will be able to do it.

Precisely the Danish can be the footballer that determine if Xavi can use to Koundé or Araújo like right side next Sunday (21:00 hours) and like this keep to Joao Cancel in the left side. The Portuguese has him 'stolen' this role to a Balde that could add his third suplencia of consecutive way, highlighting besides that the past weekend already remained without seeing minutes in front of the colchoneros.

The problems for Balde have remained showed and needs a twist of rudder

The problem for the canterano Barcelona is that Xavi seems to have found a possible solution to the defensive problems of the team in the last two months and in front of the Atleti the team played surely his best party of the course, by what except injuries or rotations, has very complicated to return to the XI right now. The Barça knows very well the enormous talent of the side, but needs that it return to his best level what before and in the meantime, has found a solution with Cancel.

The fault of intensity and concentration of Balde on the field has been determinant so that it remain 'signalled' in some parties and after remaining without his place in the eleven headline, the team does not have him extrañado neither in attack, neither in defence, at least for now. To the defence seems that only it remains him follow working and take advantage of his minutes when I Cancel have to rest or was in the right side.
