Between good and bad news, Quique Setién plans the best possible Barcelona for Saturday’s decisive game, against Napoli, at the Camp Nou, for the round of 16 of the Champions League. First, the positive news. Defender Clement Lenglet and striker Antoine Griezmann were allowed by the doctors to participate normally in the match. Thus, they must start among the holders.
Setién will not count on the midfielders Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal who are suspended, as well as defender Samuel Umtiti and striker Ousmane Dembélé. The former suffers from pain in his right knee, while the latter, stopped for six months, is seen as a risk for such an important match.
Barça no longer has Arthur, a Brazilian midfielder negotiated with Juventus. Thus, Setién must send a Barcelona to the field with: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet and Jordi Alba; Sergi Roberto, De Jong and Rakitic; Messi, Suárez and Griezmann (Ansu Fati). The doubt is in relation to the tactical system, with five defenders (Sergi Roberto making the right wing) or three attackers.
