Tour of the sacred cows in Barça

After the Milan experiment, Valverde will return to the eleven type in Anoeta always pending the state of Alba and Semedo, who could return.


The alignment of Barça in Milan, as you can imagine, will not pass anecdote (although beware that it could have replicas in the first rounds of Copa del Rey). Valverde gave rest against Inter Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Messi (these three did not travel to Milan), Ter Stegen and Busquets. De Jong and Suarez were alternates and only played for a while. Lenglet, Junior, Rakitic and Griezmann were the only regular headlines that started at the Giuseppe Meazza.

The picture of eleven will change radically in Anoeta. Valverde wants to throw everything in the next two games. Barça knows that in these two games it is at stake to finish the year in first position and, especially, to create a trend. Maybe he who takes the head after these two key games (Madrid also has Valencia). Today, there are ten fixed headlines in Barça. They are Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Lenglet, Busquets, Rakitic, De Jong, Griezmann, Messi and Suárez. The left side is in the air. If Alba shows signs of being one hundred percent, she could be a holder in the Classic. It is the only change that can be expected except for some major surprise such as the presence of Ansu or the inclusion of Vidal in some of the two matches. But Valverde has found the balance and his team in recent games and does not seem too willing to play the team too much.

The Txingurri has also managed to find the key of Anoeta. A stadium that had become inaccessible to Barca has fallen in the last two years. Barça comes from two comebacks in San Sebastián. In the 2017-18 season, he raised a 2-0 with a 2-4 that Suarez and Messi closed with two goals. Last season, the Barca hero was Dembélé, who put the 1-2 after Suarez had tied a game that had also made headway for Barça. Valverde has won at Donosti, but he knows that turning for the third consecutive year the result would be an almost impossible mission. So he wants his team to go out with the lights on Anoeta.
