Today, at Barça they have left healthy two goalkeepers, Neto and Ter Stegen, and twelve first team players: Semedo, Umtiti, Lenglet, Junior, De Jong, Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal, Arthur, Messi, Griezmann and Braithwaite. Some have asterisk. Vidal and Busquets will not be able to play the second round of Champions against Naples. Braithwaite, that was signed after close the second UEFA registration deadline, neither can play in Europe.
Be that as it may, the Barça planning it's been Naked. Although it is fair to put some asterisks. To start, in September 2017, shortly after landing at Barça, Valverde he warned: “I don't like the very long templates“That was known by Robert, sports director, the first year, and Abidal and Ramon Planes in his second course. The thing is, maybe, the rationing has been out of hand and the template has gone from thin to rickety.
Barça decided this winter to do without Todibo and Aleñá. By then, the decision already seemed risky. At least with the French central, because it is true that in the midfield there was overbooking. Stranger was the lead. With Suárez injured and Dembélé without giving any evidence of reliability after his injury to Borussia Dortmund, the club decided to sell to Carles Pérez. Shortly after, I trembled He was injured but by then the deadline for signings was already closed. The incorporation that had to be attacked when the Uruguayan was injured only it accelerated when Barça managed to justify that the absence Dembélé would be long lasting. But by then Braithwaite, that has had a good debut, already could not be registered in Champions.
Fatality has extreme Barça situation. Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba, the supposed two lateral holders, have fallen injured. And in the Champions League, the outlook with a round of eighths is worrying. Busquets Y Vidal they will not play by penalty, Braithwaite cannot do it and it is not guaranteed that by then Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto can play. Busquets and Rakitic they sent messages on the subject After the game against Naples. Setien It has positioned itself as club man But, whether there are injuries or not, and even if the current injured recover, they have been shivering. Barça only has three centrals of the first team and one of them, Umtiti, have chronic problems in the knee left. If Piqué's injury is joined, the picture is dramatic and is in the hands of the central Araújo, the subsidiary. The sides are folded and in the midfield, there is relatively sufficient pieces. In the lead, however, Messi and Griezmann They are the only players of the first team who can play both competitions. Braithwaite will throw a wire in The league Y Ansu, still player of subsidiary, It is almost the first team. But with 17 years does not seem that this end of the season in which everything is played is the best time for it to grow. Although if he knocks on the door, Setién will make him a place.
The point is that the Barca, February 26, only has 12 players first template field healthy Y One of them cannot play Champions. The circumstances that have concurred have concurred, looking at planning is a must. “It has been like that,” Busquets said. Sometimes there is no need to say more.
