Barcelona – Real MadridTOSolari reserves a capital mission: stop Jordi Alba
Lukeand ten more. It's the planSolarifor the Clsico, who since the Cup draw last Friday matched Real Madrid with Bara, reserved a special mission for Lucas Vzquez.The Galician will be in charge of stopping Jordi Alba, right now the best left-back in the world and with Messi the player in the shape of Barcelona.
Lucas is untouchable for Solarisince he took over Real Madrid. Are1,167 minutesthose who have played with the Argentine, beingholder in 14 meetings.He has played more minutes than, for example, Luka Modric,to put in value the importance that Lucas has in the scheme of the current Real Madrid.
The 17 of Real Madrid was the player discarded by Solari last Sunday against the Alavs. And his decision was not much less a punishment, but a break to face the Nou Camp duel with fresh legs.Solari knows that Bara's main danger -Messi aside- is on the left and ah, on the white right, is going to put two workers like Lucas and Carvajal.
Lucas is part of the eleven type of Solari since his arrival and its importance has been growing as the games went by.On key nights like Rome– after the 3-0 of Eibar- orin the Club World Cup, Vzquez was in the starting lineup. Also in these last matches in which Madrid has caught cruising speed, except for the duel against Alavs in which I put him in an urn to avoid injury.
And is thatSolari does not find in the entire squad an attacking player with more sacrifice than Lucas Vzquez. He knows that Bale and Vincius have more poison in attack, but the Argentine is more worried about keeping his goalkeeper well than going out on the attack. And for that, to chase Alba, none better than Lucas.
