This Wednesday, FC Barcelona measure his forces against him Sevilla in the first leg of the semifinals of the Copa del Rey. The azulgrana team comes from a great dynamic of results and will try to face one of the toughest opponents in LaLiga Santander with the ticket to the final at stake and with a large number of casualties for the culé coach.
Facing the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals that will take place at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, Ronald Koeman seems to have the eleven quite on track, taking into account the large number of casualties. In defense, the Dutch Due to injury, he will not be able to count on Ronald Araújo, Gerard Piqué or Sergi Roberto, while Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati will be missing from the offensive zone.
The only great doubt that Ronald Koeman has regarding the FC Barcelona line-up against Sevilla is in defense, due to injury that Ronald Araújo occurred against Real Betis. The Uruguayan center-back was the most fit defender of the culé team and that is why his absence will be a big problem in the central axis, in which Gerard Piqué still cannot play, in the final stretch of his recovery.
Against Sevilla, Clément Lenglet is the only footballer who has the position assured for the benefits it offers, while your partner is torn between three options: Samuel Umtiti, Óscar Mingueza and Frenkie de Jong. On paper, the French-Cameroonian is the one with the most options to play against Julen Lopetegui’s men, although nothing should be ruled out.
Óscar Mingueza is an option of great weight, only slowed down by the muscular discomfort that still plagues Sergiño Dest. The youth squad will start, but it is most likely that he will continue to be as a right back. On the other hand, Frenkie de Jong could delay his position to the central axis, but delaying the Dutch means sacrificing a key offensive piece so as not to gain too much reliability behind.
Thus the things, the possible alignment of the FC Barcelona could be formed by Marc-André ter Stegen in goal; Óscar Mingueza, Samuel Umtiti, Clément Lenglet Y Jordi Alba in defence; Sergio Busquets, Fenkie de Jong Y Pedri in the center of the field; and an offensive trident formed by Ousmane Dembélé, Antoine Griezmann Y Leo messi.
