FC Barcelona is already in Miami with all the troops except the injured Messi. In the two duels against Naples, Valverde will continue testing pieces
The FC Barcelona already is in Miami to initiate the last turns of pre-season before it give beginning LaLiga. This will be of two parties in front of the Naples of Carlo Ancelotti in which those that Ernesto Valverde will be able to follow testing footballers to fit the necessary pieces before the start of the new season.
The duels in front of the Italian team go to contest in the Hard Rock Stadium of Miami (Thursday 8 August to the 1:00 of the morning) and in Ann Arbor in the Michigan Stadiumpartidos (Saturday 10 August to the 23:00). Two meetings against a powerful rival that will serve of proof to follow seeing how evolves the team adding canteranos and signings.
The big absent will be Leo Messi by annoyances in the sóleo of his right leg, but the duels against the Naples will not lack incentives to be seen. The one who will be able to debut with the Barcelona T-shirt will be Junior Firpo, the most recent signing of the club culé and the destined man to do him the competition to the up to now intocable Jordi Alba.
The pieces of Valverde, by lines
Also we will see the definition of roles in the forward, with Luis Suárez of turn, an Ousmane Dembélé more committed that never and Antoine Griezmann that it has to find his place in the team, already was in a band or in the tip of attack. Besides, Coutinho also will look for to give them competition to all they beside the canteranos Carles Pérez and Abel Ruiz.
In the centre of the field, will be able to see to a Frenkie of Jong increasingly settled to the team, in addition to a Riqui Puig that, in spite of that it will not be part of the first team, every time shines with more strength with the 'greater'. Other footballers like Arthur, Ivan Rakitic or Arturo Vidal will initiate his way to the titularity, although no all have the continuity ensured in the team.
The defence seems the most clear-cut line: with all the positions bent with headlines and 'acting' of luxury. Nélson Semedo, Jordi Alba and Nélson Semedo split like headlines in front of the rest. Samuel Umtiti and Clément Lenglet will have to litigate by the titularity in the place of left-handed head office and the youngsters Junior Firpo, Moussa Wagué and Jean-Clair Todibo will have to show his cost.
