Ferran Torres falls from the last game and the Egarense coach bets on the four midfielders… With Sergi Roberto!

Balde remains indisputable on the left side and Kessie, another sacrificed, will be on the revulsive bench

Four midfielders. The main question in the line-up of FC Barcelona for the classic against Real Madrid at the Spotify Camp Nou was who was going to play Pedri. Who was going to fill the vacancy in midfield saying that Busquets, Gavi and De Jong are untouchable. Well then, The surprise jumps out and it’s Sergi Roberto. Xavi bets on the route of the man from Reus instead of the more physical profile and second-row arrival of Franck Kessie. Golden opportunity, without a doubt, for the youth squad.

The rest of the demarcations, a little as expected. They play, of course, Kounde and Araujo. A priori, the Uruguayan will do it on the right, in that role of ‘Anti-Vinicius’ that he has been fulfilling in recent duels against Madrid. Impeccably, by the way. One of the meeting magnifying glasses will be on the two of them. That is where the key to the final marker can be.


Bucket, that Jordi Alba’s toast definitely has food In Xavi’s eyes, he repeats for the fourth consecutive time at the start. Lewandowski and Raphinha, a very consolidated couple at the top, will carry the offensive weight. Ferran and Ansu will act as revulsives. The man from Foios was a starter in the last game, but is affected by the commitment to the four midfielders. In principle, Gavi will play more towards the left and Sergi Roberto on the right. Lending a hand to Araujo and Raphinha.

Christensen, whose ownership no one doubted, will be the bolt together with Jules Kounde in the axis of the rear. With them, Barça has conceded very little in recent times.
