One of the good things about Luis Enrique, as explained in the Barca dressing room, “is that he knows his players match when they see that the effort is best.” And today he has given example. After tense match last weekend at Mestalla (2-3), Barca coach has freed those who played in Valencia, except for Andres Iniesta, who was injured by an opponent after Enzo Perez and began therapy recovery right knee, along with André Gomes, who wants to give minutes in Tarragona morning in the dispute of the Supercopa de Catalunya that the Catalans played against Espanyol.
The coach decided to rest Rakitic, Neymar, Suarez, Ter Stegen, Digne, Mascherano, Sergi Roberto, Messi, Busquets and Umtiti. Week permits, since there is the inconsequential match and so the players can unwind after weeks of much physical and emotional burden. In this way, the Barça squad will not face each other until Thursday, two days before the important match against Granada at the Camp Nou.
For all this, even ten team players trained by Gerard Lopez, were summoned to train with the first team. The goalkeeper Jose Suarez, Nili, the Marlon defenses, Moi, Sarsanedas, Alena, Carbonell and Gumbau, besides the attackers Mujica, Alfaro and Martinez were chosen. All will be in Tarragona morning to be measured at Espanyol.
