This time yes. On the third day of the Champions League the Barcelona coach has finally been able to line up his eleven gala. He could not on the opening day in Dortmund.
When a Leo Messi still reluctant could not be a starter, nor in the Camp Nou against Inter, when Messi could form at the beginning in an eleven in which it was Nélson Semedo who formed as a left back. It should be said that then Barcelona was still blurred, something that no longer happens today, and for the first time in European competition this season Barcelona can say that it comes out with everything.
Because both Semedo and Jordi Alba, who returns to a European eleven, are. As well as Gerard Piqué and Clément Lenglet in the axis of the defense that will protect the framework of Marc-André Ter Stegen. In the engine room will be the three midfielders who share more flight hours together, Sergio Busquets, Arthur Melo and Frenkie De Jong.
There are also no surprises in attack, where the MSG will start forming again after seeing the Eibar door to door last Saturday. The Catalan team aspires to achieve the sixth consecutive victory and Valverde does not want to speculate either with the eleven or the game of his team, in clear improvement since the victory against Villarreal a month ago. The good run must continue and what better way to line up those responsible for the resurgence of Barça in recent weeks.
