On Friday, Ernesto Valverde put the final pieces together in his preparations for Barcelona’s game against Real Valladolid tonight.
The game would be Barcelona’s first away match of the season and Valverde expects a thrilling encounter.
“Outside of the Camp Nou, it’s always more difficult because of the rival’s enthusiasm,” he said.
“It’s possible that both teams will be equal because there is still the enthusiasm and the joy of the last promotion.”
“Valladolid were great defensively against Girona and earned a draw. Their play was orderly and the lines were close together.”
Injured: Aleñá, Denis Suárez, Samper and Cillessen.
Left out for tactical reasons: Rafinha, Paco Alcácer, Munir and Vermaelen
Players who made the list Ter Stegen, Ezkieta, N.Semedo, Piqué, I.Rakitic, Sergio, Coutinho, Arthur, Suárez, Messi, Dembélé, Malcom, Lenglet, Jordi Alba, S.Roberto, Vidal and Umtiti.
The omission of Rafinha Alcantara has raised some concerns among the fans as it hinted that the player is definitely on his way out of the club. And this means another La Masia product has failed to establish himself in the first team.
