Cillessen makes his debut as captain and makes his debut this season in the league

The Dutch goalkeeper had only put on the bracelet in the final of the Supercopa de Catalunya against Girona, but does not count as an official match.


The goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen returns to a starting eleven after almost three months absent. He also makes it through the big door: luciendo for the first time the captain's armband. It is true that he had worn it on another occasion this season: in the final of the Supercopa de Catalunya against Girona (0-1) which was played on March 6, but it is a competition that is not considered official by the RFEF.

Also, the Dutch goalkeeper opens this course in LaLiga , since until now he had only played one game of Champions and six of Copa del Rey. It will be his third match in the league competition since he played at Barcelona three seasons ago: the first was a Barcelona-Alavés (1-2 ) that was played on September 10, 2016 and the second a Barcelona-Villarreal (5-1) that was played on May 9, 2018. So, this third match will be the first of LaLiga to play hard. Camp Nou.

It should be remembered that his last match under the posts was in the return of the quarterfinals against Sevilla at Camp Nou on January 30 where the blaugrana thrashed 6-1 to the Seville team. An untimely injury forced him to be absent in the Copa semifinals against Real Madrid, so Valverde considers that he needs a bit of shooting ahead of the Cup final against Valencia on May 25.

In fact, el Dutch could end up playing the remaining two games to finish LaLiga and the Cup final to end the season and surely his stage as Blaugrana. And is that Cillessen has already publicly stated in his country his desire to find a new club to play more and have more continuity under the clubs. His numbers give him the reason: 29 games in three seasons, divided into 23 of the Copa del Rey, 3 of the League and 3 of Champions.
