ANDl Barcelona from Xavi begins its journey in this edition of the Copa del Rey, title that defends, against the Linares, from Primera RFEF. The technician of Terrassa He has had to improvise, once again, his eleven because of the many casualties he has due to injury, punishment and coronavirus. The big surprise of the initial block is the ownership of Dani alves, who plays his first official game in his second stage as cul. The Brazilian plays as a lane: Dembl He's on the bench. The coach, who came out in a 1-3-5-2 arrangement, has also opted for Net.
The Brazilian goalkeeper has returned to play: he has not done so since August 21. The first shot on goal from Linares it was a goal: Hugo Daz finishes at pleasure after getting ahead of Mingueza. But the meta could have done something else: he does not go out of goal. In the rest of the actions it does not show security.
The youth squad started on the right side in a defense of three centrals. He has failed to mark the goal, from a crossed shot, from Hugo Daz., which is ahead of him. After the goal, he went to the left wing, exchanging position with Araujo, but after the restart it has returned to the starting position. He is suffering.
The Uruguayan international started the crossing by playing close to the left wing at the disposal of three centrals, but after the goal of the Linares the position has been exchanged with Mingueza. It was an order from Xavi: thus better cover that area, since Alves plays focused on offensive tasks and Butcher it was creating a lot of danger. He had discomfort in his right arm and has not jumped to the grass after the break.
The young defender has started in the axis of the rear, after the entry of Piqu has shifted to the left. Concentrated. Resolved. He is opening the field and providing good deep passes to the more advanced men.
The side of L'Hospitalet He has returned to the team after overcoming the coronavirus. Today he plays more advanced, prioritizes his raises and crosses for the band. It has been little expeditious in the center from the right wing of Butcher in the goal of Hugo Daz.
The medium, which returns to eleven after resting for sanction against the Majorca, he combines his tasks of ordering and assisting the defense of three with his distribution tasks. It is emptying.
The youth squad has repeated ownership. The casualties are allowing him to have continuity. As against Majorca, has moved from inside left. It has been understood well with Busquets and has sought to partner with Sunrise. But it has been somewhat imprecise. He has been one of those sacrificed by Xavi and has not returned to the field after the break.
The midfielder is the tip of the diamond for which he is betting Xavi in the spinal cord. He looks for the vertical pass and has tried the shot on goal in the 23rd minute. He assists Jutgl.
The Brazilian is the great novelty of the eleven of Xavi. Alves plays his first official match of his second stage as cul, and does it as a right lane. Electrical Intermittent. Indecisive.
The Catalan has recovered the position of center forward, against the Majorca It was far left, where he feels most comfortable. Tirelessly prowls the area of Razak. He has taken advantage of a pass from Nico to overcome the goal of Linares with a shot with the right that has entered adjusted to the left post. His insistence has been rewarded.
The youthful youth has played in tip next to Jutgl. Fast. Attentive. Insistent. He has been the most incisive Barça player, despite the efforts of Barbosa for canceling him, of the first half. Xavi has left him in the locker room after the break.
The neerlands entered after the break for Riqui Puig. He barely played half an hour since in minute 73 he retired injured. Not very participatory. Little creative. Gray match.
The French, who remains unrenewed, has come out in the resumption instead of Ilias. It occupies the right wing. Exceeds Razak with a shot with the left that sneaks under the arms of the goal, which is unsuccessfully stretched.
Xavi He has taken him out after the break. Has entered by Araujo, that I had discomfort. Diligent.
He entered the 73rd minute by Frenkie de Jong, who has retired injured.
The technician of Terrassa takes the Copa del Rey. He has formed the most competitive eleven possible despite the large number of casualties he has due to injury, punishment and coronavirus. Trust in Alves holder, as extreme right. Leave on the bench Dembl. And rotate the goal: play Net. He has opted for the 1-3-5-2 drawing.
