Barça could use pearls to win Sunday’s game to overtake their biggest rival in the league and dispel doubts about their lack of grit in the important moments. The team has managed to complete good minutes throughout the season in different matches, but as long as the rival has been far inferior to it. Tomorrow is the perfect opportunity to turn this situation around.
The losses of the team are of the utmost importance, and the main one is that of Ronald Araujo in defense, who was undoubtedly being the best defender perhaps of the entire league championship. This setback will force Ronald Koeman to align Gerard Piqué and Eric García in the axis of the rear, a bet that can come out either very well or very badly. The physical condition of Jordi Alba, who suffered a small sprain in the Champions League match, also worries.
In the center of the field, the absence of Pedri leaves a very marked core: Busquets, Gavi and De Jong. That these three players have a good day will be essential to correctly measure Barça’s chances of taking the crash. If the center of the field of the culé team manages to subdue the Casemiro, Modric, Kroos … Barça will have a lot of ground gained.
On the offensive plot there are two players who cannot be absent; Ansu Fati and Memphis Depay. They are beginning to show that playing together they understand each other wonderfully and that the huge association that they demonstrated in the first minutes that the young culé player played was not the flower of a day. It is hard to believe that either of these two footballers will start on the bench, although with Koeman you never know.
This would be the eleven culé (4-3-3)
Ter Stegen, Mingueza, Eric García, Piqué, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Gavi, De Jong, Dest, Memphis and Ansu Fati.
