Valencia – Barcelona: Europe is played out at Mestalla

Credibility is what he is looking for FCBarcelona this sunday before Valence. The culés are playing a lot today in Mestalla after new results that left in illusion what they showed against Atlético de Madrid. After the 4-2 against the colchoneros, I stopped short with two draws against Espanyol and Napoli where the bad goal continues to be a headache for xavier Hernandez. There will be another due to noticeable absences that they will have to creatively correct.

The culé coach will have to bet again on an unprecedented defense against the loss of three of its holders. They won’t even be Gerard prick no more Dany Alves by sanction and, barring surprise, Ronald Araujo. The Uruguayan is inclined to force and will depend on xavier, who has already acknowledged in a press conference that it can happen. That is why the coach will have to use what is left, only with the injuries of lenglet and Umtitiis reduced to jord Sunrise, Eric Garcia, Mingueza and destination. This will be the Blaugrana’s starting line-up, which, if previously raised doubts at Mestalla, could be a bigger problem.

The rest is, there is no doubt for xavier from midfield forward and back to plan A. Busquets, From jong and pedri in the marrow and Gavi, Adama and Ferran as a trident. It remains to be seen what share quota he has aubameyangif the Egarense already considers it the first sword. Gavi He seems the weakest link in this file, even if the Sevillian has more than deserved his place in the eleven. Another one that has made merits so far is Luuk from jongalthough it is utopian to think of its ownership today.

joseph Bordalas He has two victims, that of cillessen and Correia, for this game. The rest is available and in principle a first eleven of guarantees is expected from him. Guedes and Hugo Lasted They are the fashionable Valencian couple on the offensive front due to their versatility and speed, they will be uncomfortable for the abutment defense. bryan Gil, Charles usually do, Guillamon and an old acquaintance like Ilaix MoribaThey occupy the middle.

A game with a lot of morbidity

There is a lot of morbidity in this Valencia-Barça. Mingueza He had packed his bags last January to go to the club, but joseph Bordalas he rejected the idea. Lap to claim for the side, which has not enjoyed particular prominence since the arrival of xavier. The arrival of Dany Alves This left him with virtually no options and he faces a double opportunity. Another who tries to justify himself is Ilaix Moribawho will face for the first time the Barca since leaving the club after failing to agree a renewal deal. The option did not suit him. leipzig and he arrived on loan in January at Mestalla.

More names with a connection between the two teams like Ferran towers. The Valencian returns to what used to be his home, where he broke in and allowed him to pack for Manchester. It was in the Town where he finished casting and now he’s coming as a star to Barca. Another who will seek to assert himself, more out of self-esteem than to play at home. None of them will play but Report and cillessen They have crossroads. The Brazilian was replacing the Dutchman when he signed for the Valence few years ago.

Morbid also around joseph Louis Gayawhich has not yet completed the renewal with the Valence and is among the candidates for the left side of the Barca. The culés are very attentive to their situation and one of the possible alternatives they are considering to compete with jord Sunrise. Ferran Jutgla He also wore the Valencia team jersey for one season, on loan from the Spanish.

The triumph of Athletic from Madridin view of OsasunaAnd the one of Villarrealto the grenadeleave the Barca sixth before this game. The requirement will once again be maximum for the culés, who, as their coach has again indicated in a press conference, the objective is always to be among the first four classified, and before facing the Valencethey are not.
