The FC Barcelona and the Real Sociedad will play the first semifinal of this pertaining tournament to the past season that, in a principle, would have to have contested in Saudi Arabia. Finally, the Saudis refused to receive it and will play entirely in Andalucia.
The Barça wants to struggle by this first title of the campaign and looks forward to to arrive to the big final of 17 January, where would see the faces with the Real Madrid or the Athletic Club. For this, everything aims that Ronald Koeman will not do experiments in the eleven initial and especula with that the Dutch could take out one almost identical to the that goleó to the Granada does some days. To continuation, our forecast of the alignments of both groups.
Possible alignments of the Real Sociedad-FC Barcelona
- Real Sociedad: Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Him Normand, Monreal; Guevara, Merino, Guridi; Portu, Oyarzabal and Willian José.
- FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Dest, Umtiti, Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Of Jong, Pedri; Dembélé, Griezmann and Leo Messi.
Marc-André ter Stegen will be under the sticks without any doubt to try carry to the Catalans to the big final. The German is surrendering so well as of habit and will go back to be the insurance of the Barça low sticks in case the things tuercen. Against the Basques will have to show his best expensive to help to that his team can compete to the end this first title of the campaign.
In the sides there is not any doubt that they will be Sergiño Dest and Jordi Alba. Both are indisputable for Koeman, and more taking into account that Sergi Roberto is lesionado and Junior Firpo has a foot went. The central axis of the defence could form it Clément Lenglet, a fixed, and Samuel Umtiti, that after being headline in Granada by the injury of Ronald Araújo, could have another opportunity in this Supercopa. The charrúa has recovered to time for this crash, but in the press comments that the technician will bet by the frank-Cameroonian.
The age of Sergio Busquets is the only that leaves some doubts in the centre of the field that will plant Koeman in these 'semis'. The one of Badia great three consecutive titularities in the last 10 days and could be a good moment for 'throw' of Miralem Pjanic. Nevertheless, the Dutch trainer wants the Supercopa and seems that it will risk to be followed having he. By in front, of interiors, will be with security Frenkie of Jong and Pedri, two fundamental pieces for this Barcelona.
In the leading could go in Martin Braithwaite so that it rest Ousmane Dembélé, but everything aims to that Koeman will follow betting by the trident that so well has worked him in the last meetings. The French would be in the left, Leo Messi in the right with a lot of freedom and Antoine Griezmann as 'false 9' moving by all the front of attack. The three are very in shape, especially the rosarino, and will be the big arms of the barcelonistas for this duel.
