Xavi could rest Barcelona’s key defender against Athletic Club

Xavi could rest Barcelona’s key defender against Athletic Club

FC Barcelona will play their tenth match of the 2023-2024 La Liga season against Athletic Club tonight.

It will be a very competitive match.

Both teams have performed well this season, with Barcelona leading the Bilbao club by just four points.

However, FC Barcelona entered this match with several weaknesses.

Six of Catalonia’s most important players are ruled out due to injury.

That means Xavi only has to play half of his key players in this match.

Maybe we can rest Araujo.

 

Even fit players are getting more playing time now and Xavi needs to be more careful with playing time.

 

One of the players who has played the most minutes recently is Ronald Araujo.

Araujo returned from injury a few days ago, but has since played significant minutes for Barcelona and Uruguay.

 

According to SPORT, Xavi is likely to rest the Uruguayan for the match against “Athletic Club”. In fact, Uruguayan will be one of three key players to sit on the bench, the other two being Inaki Peña and Marcos Alonso.

 

Martinez scored the first big moment.

Tonight’s game features a number of academy players including Asterlaga, Guiu, Unai and Hector Font.

Araujo’s absence leaves Xavi playing behind Andreas Christensen and Inigo Martinez.

That’s why Martínez could score his first big moment in a Barcelona shirt against his former club and it will be a tough test to show his fans and Barcelona’s sporting staff what he’s got.
